No woman veep, but getting closer. Another Summer Olympics boycott, this time led by the Soviets. A new board-game craze, Trivial Pursuit. The Tigers, 49ers, Celtics, Edmonton, and Georgetown in basketball and BYU in football win titles, but some fans don't notice. They're too busy doing the Wave.
Now that the Oakland Invaders and the Oklahoma Outlaws of the USFL have agreed to merge, it has been suggested that the combined team be called the Inlaws.
IN SI'S WORDS
After Flutie sidestepped Brown, he circled back and around, and was at his 37-yard line when he came forward, planted his left foot and let fly. He said he "really did see Phelan break clear. He was the guy I wanted to get it to. but after I threw the ball. I didn't see anything much until the referee raised his arms. Then, I admit. I couldn't believe it, even when everybody started yelling and picking me up."
Neither could Phelan. Fullington mistimed his leap and was nudged off-balance on the way up by his own man, Sutton, as he also leaped. The ball whistled through their arms. Phelan said. "I saw him misjudge it, and I was thinking. 'Just tip it, keep it in play.' But I was falling and it came down right here [groin level] and when I rolled over, I could see writing on the ground. Colored writing. I was in the end zone!"
