? Green Bay Packer Halfback Paul Hornung, sitting out a suspension for gambling, to a football-pool winner at the Evansville (Ind.) Quarterback Club: "You should feel good picking 20 out of 25. That's a lot better than I used to do."

?Clown-faced Welterweight Luis Rodriguez, on his unique profile: "When I am a baby, my mother tells me all the time I am beautiful. Now, I look in the mirror each morning, and I say, 'My mother, she wouldn't lie to me.' "

? George Will, British Ryder Cup team member, on one of his partners in the Sahara Invitational Golf Tournament at Las Vegas: "Incredible fellow. He was all over the course but never on the fairway. Every time I looked up he was coming over a sand dune. I didn't know whether to call him Lawrence of Arabia or Rommel, the Desert Fox."
