This article probably will create some unrest in the family of Shirley Povich, 53, sports columnist for the Washington Post and Times-Herald, and father of three. Two of his offspring, David, 23, and Maury, 19, were ardent basketball players in school and remain loyal fans. Their father changed from fan to ex-fan in that period: "It got so I was rooting as hard against the referees as I was for the boys," he says. And no man could better depict what Povich p�re feels than Jules Feiffer, whose psychiatric cartoon book Sick, Sick, Sick is now selling almost as fast as a cut-rate analysis.
