No More Shopping Woes
The holidays are upon us, and it's time to comb through the books, games, toys and videos now in the stores to find a gift for the sports nut nearest you. SCORECARD has done is shopping, and here we present our choices. We plan to give them with our tongues pushing the limits of our checks, and remember, caveat emptor.
Ultimate Crappie Techniques
Lear how to catch crappie (it's a fish), how to smell crappie and, best of all, how to cook crappie. One crappie recipe:
In shallow dish mix buttermilk and pepper.
Place mixture of crushed potato chips, cornflake crumbs and paprika on a plate.
Set oven at 550 degree and grease broiler pan.

Turn fillets over and broil until fish flakes easily.
