Broadneck girls lacrosse coach Karen Tengwall has a solid chance to win her third state championship, and the first in three years, but, lately, she's been pondering the footwear of her team and its opponents. Tengwall's concerns aren't sartorial in nature, but related to safety, as three of her Bruins have suffered torn anterior cruciate ligaments this season. Two of those knee injuries took place on the $700,000 artificial turf field that the team inaugurated April 28. In addition, Tengwall said, a South River junior varsity player dislocated her kneecap on the field.

DETROIT -- Now there can be no doubt about the Pittsburgh Steelers' destiny. In a manner that defined their charmed life in the playoffs, the Steelers captured their first Super Bowl title in 26 years with a ragged, 21-10 victory over the Seattle Seahawks last night before 68,206 at Ford Field. Without much offensive punch or a dominant defensive performance, the Steelers persevered to win the franchise's fifth NFL title - "One for the thumb," they declared - in the unlikeliest of ways.

The Detroit Lions, a bunch of NFL retreads who never got rolling last season, are going to run on Firestones in 2002. Literally. The Lions' new domed stadium, Ford Field, will feature a squishy, artificial playing surface made partly of rubber reclaimed from recalled Firestone tires. You may remember that Ford Motor Co. declared 13 million Firestone tires defective two years ago, saying they'd caused 271 deaths and more than 800 injuries in accidents involving its sport utility vehicle, the Explorer.

Lucas sets up shop with special effects campus Star Wars creator George Lucas hopes a $300 million special effects campus for his film company will help San Francisco rival Hollywood as a producer of movie magic. "San Francisco's always had a quality of filmmaking that most people haven't been able to recognize, we always get shoved under the title `Hollywood,'" Lucas said Saturday at the project's groundbreaking. The campus, for the digital arts project of Lucasfilm Ltd., will be near the Golden Gate Bridge at the Presidio.

DETROIT-- --Eight miles from pristine Ford Field - site of Sunday's Super Bowl - there is Jerome Bettis' crumbling neighborhood. There is a slew of boarded-up, charred houses. There are graffiti on some and caved-in roofs on others. There are broken liquor bottles on the sidewalks and beat-up cars in the streets. Except this week, there is a sense of hope in this decaying part of town, especially in the halls of the Pittsburgh Steelers running back's own Mackenzie High School. The message being instilled, as one teacher put it, is to follow The Bus. "It's always a positive thing to know somebody in the neighborhood survived," said Dwight Thomas, Bettis' physical education teacher who still works at the school.
