EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Sean Landeta is getting married. It's the final blow.Juicy sports gossip is virtually nonexistent these days, except when someone gets indicted, suspended or sued. But in his heyday, Landeta was a one-man National Enquirer. The original playboy punter.He got Donna Rice's phone number before Gary Hart. He dated Marla Maples before Donald Trump. He charmed fashion models and centerfolds, and now he's marrying Pamela Schmidt, a former paralegal from Long Island he swears is "the prettiest of them all."

PHILADELPHIA - Proving the first time was no fluke, the Philadelphia Eagles pounded out a methodical 31-9 NFC wild-card victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers yesterday. Tenacious defense inside their own 20 and the dazzling feet of quarterback Donovan McNabb delivered a nearly identical result to last year's 21-3 playoff win over these same Bucs. Yesterday's rout will send the 12-5 Eagles to Chicago next Saturday for an NFC semifinal matchup against the Bears, and embattled Bucs coach Tony Dungy home to an uncertain future.

Sean Landeta never thought he would have a day like yesterday.He realized that someday his career as a National Football League punter would end. He just had no idea that now, at the age of 31, he would be fired by the New York Giants.And so he relaxed yesterday at his handsome, new white brick home in Lutherville. He wore shorts and a T-shirt and over-the-calf athletic socks. In his hand he held a portable telephone that wouldn't stay silent for more than three minutes at a time as friends called to ask how he was doing.

In a surprise move, the New York Giants waived veteran punter Sean Landeta yesterday and replaced him with Mike Horan, who played for Giants coach Dan Reeves when both were with the Denver Broncos.Landeta, a Division II All-American at Towson State who played at Loch Raven High, averaged 42.1 yards this season with one punt blocked.But he averaged only 39.6 yards on seven punts in Sunday's 31-9 loss to the Dallas Cowboys, and several were low, allowing the Cowboys returns for good field position.

TAMPA, Fla. -- Enumerating the mechanical factors that go into punting a football -- meaning angle of the drop, thrust with the kicking leg and how high and far it spirals -- can lead to a case of paralysis by analysis. But not for Sean Landeta, the verbose specialist of the New York Giants, who follows a simplistic method that he is pleased to say is self-taught.That makes Landeta, the leading punter in the National Football League with an average of 44.1 yards this year, an absolute natural.

The movement to save Towson State University football gathered momentum yesterday when the four student members the Intercollegiate Athletic Committee adopted new ideas to present to the University Senate on Monday and when former players and parents of current Tigers vowed to take their fight to the local business community in search of necessary funding.Amid impassioned and often-angry speeches, an open forum held by the IAC drew an estimated 700 people to the University Union four days before the Senate is to vote on that group's recommendation to suspend the football program after this season.

Football is serious business to Carolina linebacker Sam Mills.Now that the Panthers have beaten San Francisco three of four times, Mills expects his entire team to be taken seriously -- if that's not the case already.Sunday's 30-24 victory over the 49ers put the Panthers in an enviable -- and unprecedented -- position.Home victories over the Ravens on Sunday and Pittsburgh (Dec. 22) would lock up the NFC West title for Carolina one season after its debut as the most successful expansion franchise in NFL history.

The moment he heard that NFL football was coming back to Baltimore?"I was in China," Art Donovan was saying yesterday.China? C'mon, big man."Yup, a hotel room in Shanghai," he said. "I'm trying to sleep, but the bed is too small and my rear is sticking out over the edge."An enchanting image."So I'm lying there awake in bed, and the phone rings and I pick it up all mad, and it's a guy from The Sun calling. He says to me, 'Baltimore got a team, what do you think?' And I say to him, 'I think there's 6 million Chinamen over here who don't care.

We missed some.This was the 25th year in which The Evening Sun selected Athletes of the Week, and as the Who's Who below attests, some pretty solid names didn't make the list. A few were late bloomers, some didn't get any help in the publicity department from their coaches, and others were excluded by the selection process.The first Athlete of the Year awards luncheon brought together 18 boys, all from the Maryland Scholastic Association. Athletic directors from that group picked the winner, but they liked Southern's Don Russell, who hadn't been selected, over the weekly winners.
