Webster's defines superstition as "a belief or practice resulting from ignorance, fear of the unknown, trust in magic or chance or a false conception of causation. " That makes it sound as if superstitions are ridiculous rituals that we perform only because we don't know how else to affect events or other people. Balderdash! Is wearing the same underwear every time you play H-O-R-S-E silly just because you wore them the first time you shut out your fourth-grade son in the driveway?

SANDY Burdsall writes that she has learned "to put up with" the Phillies, Eagles and Sixers getting news coverage before the Flyers. She must realize that those are real sports played by real athletes. Hockey is just something for Canadians to do during the winter. If not for the NHL, hockey players would be in some beer league playing softball. Joseph Hammell Lewisville, Texas

Hockey may still lack the necessary popular apppeal to get a network television contract, but the game between the Boston Bruins and the New Jersey Devils Sunday night had no trouble making the network news. This was thanks mainly to a complex low comedy that started with the alleged assault of an official by the Devils' coach. It eventually involved everyone from a New Jersey Superior Court judge to three hastily rounded-up game officials, who initially skated onto the ice in what appeared to be green-and-yellow clown suits.

Comly Auctioneers on Wednesday will handle a bankruptcy auction that will enrich the lives of hockey fans, on and off the ice. "This will be a sale of quantity and quality, the liquidation of all new equipment, obtained through a store now in bankruptcy," said Dan Comly Jr. "Some lots are so arranged to appeal to dealers, like bundles of sticks or helmets by the dozen," Comly said.

Dwight Maetche's first love may be lacrosse, but it's his second love that has enabled the Philadelphia Wings' goalie to be named "All-World" three times during his nine-year career in Canadian box lacrosse. "Hockey has done a lot for me," said Maetche. "I grew up in Edmonton. When the lacrosse season was over (in July), there wasn't much else to do but hockey. The puck moves faster, but it is actually less accurate than a lacrosse ball. " Maetche, 29, will start in the nets during tomorrow's 2 p.m. Spectrum matinee, when the Wings (2-0)

As with football, the hitting of opponents - both legally and otherwise - is seen as being part of the game in ice hockey. So it comes as no surprise that players suffer concussions, as Flyers Claude Giroux, Chris Pronger, and Brayden Schenn have this season. But head-injury experts suspect that the true number of concussions is far greater than what is reported, both in hockey and other sports, both in professional and youth leagues. And in some respects, hockey players may be at greater risk than athletes in other sports, said Douglas H. Smith, director of the University of Pennsylvania's Center for Brain Injury and Repair.

Entering the season with a strong and highly motivated senior class, the Bishop Eustace Prep field hockey team is determined to win the state championship.

In both games, Eustace played Oak Knoll close and lost each time by two goals. Overall, there are five seniors returning for Bishop Eustace, and though it is a dynamic class head coach Danielle Senior will have to get the younger players ready to go. "To say we are senior heavy would be somewhat untrue," Senior said.

Because of salary-cap restraints, Flyers general manager Ron Hextall didn't make a big splash in the offseason. That could change Monday, though Hextall faces difficult odds as he tries to sign gifted Harvard left winger Jimmy Vesey. Vesey, the Hobey Baker winner as collegiate hockey's top player last season, becomes an unrestricted free agent Monday, and he has many teams courting him. If the Flyers are able to sign him, he could land a spot in their top six this season.

MANHEIM, Pa. - Spectators arriving for last week's finale of a three-game women's field hockey series between Team USA and visiting Chile were met by the pungent scent of manure from the farms surrounding the Spooky Nook Sports complex, a facility as massive as it is both oddly named and located. But by the time those fans had made the long trek through the 700,000-square-foot facility, which its operators claim is America's largest indoor sports center, and reached the outdoor hockey field's grandstands, the aroma had vanished.

Gloucester Catholic High, you see, has suddenly become an unofficial feeder program to NHL teams. Two former Gloucester Catholic stars - Johnny Gaudreau, a two-time all-star left winger with Calgary, and blossoming Ottawa right winger Buddy Robinson - took part in a meet-and-greet Thursday with about 50 of the school's hockey players. "Quite honestly, hockey is a big reason why a lot of these guys came here," Gloucester Catholic athletic director Pat Murphy said after the assembly in the school's gym. During Thursday's session, Gaudreau, whose father, Guy, coaches the Rams hockey team, and Robinson talked about their backgrounds and their different paths to the NHL before a question-and-answer period.
