DAVID WALPERT arrives for lunch via the Gilman School and Amherst College and a year of law school, none precisely known for nurturing television sitcom writers. He picks at a salad that looks appropriately Californian, toying with a piece of lettuce, not wishing to overindulge. You imagine his mother, Fern Walpert of Pikesville, or his father, accountant Fred Walpert, declaring, "Eat, David, eat." He chuckles at the image. Life is a smile, even when your last two jobs were shot out from under you. He's a delightful young man -- and why not?

Middlebury's Betsy Wheeler had to look no further than the sideline for inspiration yesterday. Wheeler's overtime goal capped the top-ranked Panthers' rally from a six-goal deficit - one of the biggest comebacks in tournament history - to defeat No. 2 Amherst, 11-10, in the Division III women's lacrosse championship game at Johns Hopkins Homewood field. That motivation came from former Panthers goalie and current assistant coach Katie Samson. Samson helped the Panthers win the title in 1999, but a spinal cord injury in a January 2000 sledding accident confined her to a wheelchair.

Heather Cole is suddenly becoming something of a tennis celebrity around Amherst College. The former McDonogh School standout has been so strong this fall in singles and doubles play that she is featured in a school newspaper ad. The ad, taken out by a local restaurant, headlines Cole as the key to Amherst's chances of winning the NCAA Division III women's championship next spring. Cole, a senior, did not get a chance to participate in the Massachusetts school's run to the national Division III title her freshman year, because she came down with mononucleosis right before the championships.

Scribbling this week's sports media notebook while wondering how soon ESPN will have to get separate desks for Stephen A. Smith and Bill Walton: On Tuesday at 10:30 p.m., four days before the annual renewal of a football series that began in 1897, HBO debuts Michigan vs. Ohio State: The Rivalry. It's yet another compelling sports documentary by the network that produces one after another. But that's just my opinion.
