UKIAH FITNESS CENTER Tanning Beds 677 North State Street 462-1255 Associated Press SAN JOSE — Sharks rookie goalie Evgeni Nabokov's NHL debut last week in Colorado was nothing short of sensational. The Avalanche brought him back down to earth the second time around. The only rookie to be part of a scoreless tie in his first start, Nabokov didn't have the same kind of success Tuesday night. Chris Drury scored the go-ahead goal in the third period and then assisted on a power-play score as the Avalanche held off San Jose 4-3. Nabokov, who had 39 saves in registering a shutout last Wednesday, couldn't pull off a repeat. He faced 24 shots, stopping 20 of them. "In the first game, he was unbelievable," said Milan Hejduk, who scored Colorado's last goal off a pass from Drury. "We couldn't score, but he had a little luck, too. It's tough to play two games in a row against us like that. Today, we had some pretty good shots and he couldn't catch it." Ukiah wins indoor soccer opener The Dally Journal The Ukiah girls pulled out a 5-4 win in the Santa Rosa indoor soccer league Saturday, defeating the Rockets, 5-4. Amy Bardwell scored the winning goal for Ukiah with just 15 seconds remaining in the five-a-side matchup, as Ukiah improved to 1-0 on the season. The goal was BardwelPs second of the day after earlier netting along, with Melissa Lponey, Shelly Smith and Jessica Pollitz. The Ukiah girls will continue play in the FIFA sanctioned league this weekend. Sidelines Eagle Peak takes consolation at FB The Daily Journal The Eagle Peak eighth-graders lost for the first time this season at the Fort Bragg Tournament Saturday, taking the consolation championship. Eagle Peak opened with a 57-42 loss to Winship out of Eureka, before rebounding to defeat both Terrace and Sunny Brae. The Eagles are now 13-1 on the season. In game two, a 44-24 win over Terrace out of Lakeport, Josh Mclntosh finished with a team-high 19 points, while Steven Stutsman added five. In game three, a 34-33 win over Sunny Brae in the consolation championship, Stutsman netted a driving layup with just four seconds remaining to seal the win. Mclntosh finished with 14 points in the win, while Stutsman, Owen Knight and Ryan Ruddick had four apiece. Against Winship, Knight finished with a team-high 10 points, while Mclntosh added seven and Jacoby Kinion added six. "It's the first time we actually played somebody better than us," head coach Alex Van Patten said. Stutsman was named to the all-tourney team, while both Corey Brpin and Richard Webb each had solid tournaments. In earlier action, the Eagle Peak boys defeated Pomolita 3124 in non-tournament play. Stutsman scored 10 in the win, while Mclntosh added six and Eli Arkin five. Mavericks 117, Warriors 103 Associated Press DALLAS — The Dallas Mavericks want to be known as team that doesn't back down from physical challenges. They made progress in that area Tuesday night. In a game that featured two altercations and three ejections, Dallas coach Don Nelson took note of the fact that his players protected each other in their 117103 victory over the Golden State Warriors. Continued from Page 8 you could call it kind of an expected surprise. "As for George, well nobody thought he'd go at all, not to Georgia, not this year. At least nobody outside of Tennessee. I'm not sure what they thought in Georgia. Do you know what I mean?" By now my new buddies looked totally bewildered. Good, I thought, they were finally getting it. They were beginning to understand just what it's really like for football fans. "I'm talking about Eddie George, the star running back of the Tennessee Titans, and Georgia Frontiere, the owner of the St. Louis Rams, and Atlanta Georgia, the site of this year's Super Bowl," I tried to explain. They still looked confused. Personally I think they were still caught up on the whole Raiders thing, and we all know just how bewildering that can be. •-•' ' Basketball "Don't worry," I tried to reassure them, "we're all confused." Then I thought maybe I should talk to them about something simpler, and something we all find more intriguing. "Madonna's going to sing at the game," I told them, and suddenly their faces lit up. "Oh wait, no, actually she canceled," I remembered, and their faces dropped again. "But there's going to be loads of super cool new expensive commercials to watch during the game," I said, and they suddenly became almost giddy with excitement. "And the Super Bowl's great because there's always twice as many cheerleaders as at any other game. "Then there's the fireworks and all the beautiful smoke they'll leave behind them so that the players won't be able to see anything for most of the first quarter. "And there's the daylong Continued from Page 8 steals, while Brianne Ferris added six points, seven rebounds, three steals and five assists. Tracy Phillips also made an impact in the win, finishing with four points and five rebounds, while Sabine Stafferer scored four points. The Lady Bearcats travel to Laytonville Friday for a 6:30 p.m. tip off. Bearcat JV boys 44, SRC 36 Kyle Vonfeldt scored a game- high 21 points to lead the Bearcat JVs past Santa Rosa. Dustin Brown added 18 points in the win and Ryan Johnson two. The Lady Bearcat JVs, still undefeated in North Central League in play, had a bye Tuesday.

Now we won't have to listen to good old TB rattle on for hours on end. And by the way, TB stands for Terry Bradshaw and not Totally Bald, although it could also mean Tons of BS." By now I was on a roll and there was no stopping me. "And of course there's all the press conferences carried live on television all week. Press conferences with just about every coach, owner, player, mother, wife and water boy involved. Heck, they'll probably even have a press conference with the groundskeeper, although exactly what a groundskeeper does in a domed astroturf stadium, I'm not sure. Maybe he vacuums the field before the game." Now my new friends were beginning to look confused again. "What about the game?" they asked. "Who's going to win?" "Who care's?" I replied. "And by the way what game do you mean, I'm talking about the Super Bowl here." At that stage, they looked like they'd had enough for one day and abruptly ended our enlightening little get-together. As they dropped me off back in Ukiah, I wondered for one brief moment if they were really aliens, or maybe just from the outskirts of Northern Mendocino County. Or perhaps they were merely some of the millions who invade the world of football for one week every year. The millions the NFL only too gladly caters to. "Hey you guys ever hear of Dennis Rodman or Mike Tyson?" I asked as they turned to leave. "If you think the Super Bowl's confusing, you'd really love them." And off they went into the night.
