MEXICAN TV sportscaster Ines Sainz has a smoking-hot body, the kind most women would kill for, and the type of job that being easy on the eye is a career requirement. But that doesn't mean she was asking for trouble when she showed up in the New York Jets locker room in painted-on jeans. When you stop and consider her vavavavoom image and that she got her position in part for being eye candy for TV Azteca's male viewers, Sainz was doing her job. For her, dressing in provocative clothing is as much a part of how she earns her living as her interviewing skills.

There is a theory floating around that the Flyers are off to a poor start because Claude Giroux is not a good captain. It's an erroneous theory. The Flyers have struggled because they have mid-level talent, and because several players haven't played with the passion provided by Giroux and his linemates. Giroux may not be the best sound bite in the Flyers' locker room, but he leads - quite well - with his relentless style on the ice. The 26-year-old star center has his own captain's style.

You could hear the cheering and clapping the moment you walked out of the gym and entered the hallway at Pope John Paul II high school. The screams and hoots only got louder the closer you got to the locker room. And then, the excited hollering from behind the closed door came in waves for the Golden Panthers girls' basketball team. One minute it was as if someone had turned the volume all the way up. The next, silence. See, that's what happens when you beat a perennial powerhouse and conference foe for the first time in program history: you celebrate.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Tony Romo laughed as he popped out from behind a black curtain in the Cowboys' locker room late Sunday night at MetLife Stadium. "Eight-and-a-half seconds," he called across the locker room in disbelief. "Someone timed it. " The amount of time the Cowboys quarterback had to find Dez Bryant in the back of the end zone for the go-ahead touchdown in a 31-28 victory over the Giants was actually about a second shorter. But it must have felt like an eternity behind the Cowboys' talented line.

Episcopal Academy's offense, or what there was of it Friday, was trying to get downfield for a touchdown. No matter. It was so dark by that time of the late afternoon that it was hard to see the football anyhow. And the Churchmen's first loss of the season, a 23-10 defeat at the hands of Penn Charter, was already assured. "They punished us; they deserved to win," said Episcopal quarterback Mike Abate, who completed only 4 of 12 passes and was constanly running away from Penn Charter pressure.

Whether a two-story building at 8900 Hawthorne Lane can be used as a classroom - a question that created a stir four years ago - is once again at issue in a Springfield Township zoning dispute. The building is at the rear of the property near two swimming pools on a lot owned by Michael Singer of Lower Merion. A larger building on the lot is used as a day-care center, and Singer's tenant, La Petit Enfant Day Care, wants to use the disputed building for a classroom. But the township and neighboring residents say it should be used only as a locker room.

A Springfield Township day-care center this week lost another round in its bid to convert a two-story locker-room building on its property into a classroom. Officials of La Petit Enfant Day Care, which operates out of a classroom building on the 8900 block of Hawthorne Lane, have sought to expand their operation into the locker-room building. The Springfield Zoning Hearing Board voted unanimously at its Monday night meeting to reject the day care center's application. The board did not discuss the application and turned down the application by a voice vote.

A 28-year-old graduate student has told police she has no memory of being attacked in a basement locker room at the University of Pennsylvania Veterinary School on Thursday morning. According to Lt. Kenneth Coluzzi of the Police Department's sex crimes unit, the woman said the last thing she remembers is punching in the electronic code to unlock the door to the locker room. She said her next recollection is of returning to consciousness on the floor of the locker room at 38th and Spruce streets and finding police standing over her, Coluzzi reported.

The third time was the charm for Marple Newtown, and defense was its key in a 75-61 PIAA Class AAAA playoff victory over Ridley last night at Strath Haven. The Tigers, beaten twice by the Green Raiders during the regular season, turned up the defensive heat in the second half to earn a berth in the state boys' basketball playoffs for the first time in school history. "We came into the locker room at halftime and said we had to leave everything on the floor," senior forward Frank Zanin said.
