Louis Morales (right) yesterday made an offhand remark that an uncle was quite the handball player. His sons said they weren't too bad, either. So he said show me your stuff. Above is son Louis Morales, 16. Below, Morales serves to sons Jesus Cruz, 14, Louis, 16, and Miguel, 13. The tale played out yesterday on Tusculum Street near Kensington Avenue.

WHEN I WAS a kid in the '70s, there was nothing more special than going to a Flyers game at the Spectrum. Many of my friends' parents had season tickets, and most of them were just like my parents - working-class folks. Whenever I see a Flyers game on TV now, you hardly ever see any kids in the audience, and if you do, their parents are clearly part of the platinum Rolex crowd. I doubt the Flyers, Ed Snider, Bobby Clarke or even the nouveau-riche millionaire-fans who attend games these days care very much about the middle-class folks who supported the team for its first 20-25 years.

RE "Incumbents, as usual, have upper hand" (April 20): This article implied that Carol Ann Campbell is not working as hard as the other new members of City Council, and not as active as her two challengers. Nothing could be further from the truth! For more than 40 years, as a community activist, committeewoman and ward leader, Councilwoman Campbell has been in the forefront of constituent services. Whether working on behalf of senior citizens or ensuring that neighborhood playgounds are safe havens for children, Councilwoman Campbell has always been one of the most diligent public servants in the city.

Jeff Ratcliffe scored his fourth goal late in the fourth quarter to help the Wings edge the Minnesota Swarm, 18-17, yesterday in a National Lacrosse League game. "We had a tough weekend but got the job done here," said Lindsay Sanderson, general manager and coach of the Wings, who suffered a 14-13 overtime loss to Rochester on Friday night. Minnesota (2-6) had jumped to a 4-2 lead after the first quarter, but the Wings closed to within a point, at 8-7, before the half. Andrew Burkholder's second goal of the game gained an 8-8 tie for the Wings (3-5)

A 43-year-old South Jersey man was held on $200,000 cash bail yesterday after he was arraigned in Camden County Superior Court on charges that he murdered his roommate Sunday night in Lindenwold. James D. Roberts, a heavyset man with graying hair, said virtually nothing during the noontime proceeding before Superior Court Judge Isaiah Steinberg at the Hall of Justice in Camden. Roberts said he needed to be represented by a court-appointed lawyer, and Marcia Soast, an assistant Camden County public efender, said she believed she would represent him. Assistant Camden County Prosecutor Gregory Smith told the court that Roberts and the victim, William Barrett, a man in his mid-40s, lived in the same unit at the Coachman Manor Apartments in Lindenwold.

Line: Saints by 6 The skinny: New Orleans appears to have the upper hand against San Francisco. The Saints already are clicking, and they've won the last five matchups with the Niners, who will try to get back on track following a dismal 31-6 season-opening loss at Seattle and a week of questions about their offense. Quarterback Alex Smith had problems getting the plays into his ear on time before the headset cut off with 15 seconds on the play clock. The Niners didn't score a touchdown against Seattle and couldn't score at all in the second half.

Phoenix Suns guard Steve Nash will be named the NBA's most valuable player for the second year in a row, the Arizona Republic reported yesterday. The newspaper cited a league source familiar with the voting, but said the official announcement may not come for 2 weeks. The NBA did not comment on the report, posted on the Republic's Web site yesterday. Nash would become the 10th player to win the award in consecutive seasons. Kobe Bryant, another MVP contender, got the upper hand last night when his Los Angeles Lakers beat the host Suns, 99-93, to tie their best-of-seven Western Conference first-round series at 1-1. Bryant had 29 points, 10 rebounds and five assists.

Matt Ferrick was the first player on the court for Cardinal O'Hara, winning his first singles match over Archbishop Ryan's George Todt in straight, closely contested sets, 7-5, 6-4. Then the doubles team of Kurt Scheivert and Matt Schramm pulled out a three-set victory, 7-5, 6-7, 6-3, against Nick Lampone and Steve Battista. And minutes later, second-singles player James O'Shea squeezed out a 6-4, 3-6, 7-6 decision over Matt Howley. But with wins in three of five matches already safely secured, O'Hara coach John Peters looked less than confident.
