? Dean Martin, on the wagon during the Bing Crosby Golf Tournament, asked for his autograph on the 18th green at Cypress by a woman with green hair: "Lady, I knew something like you would show up the minute I quit drinking."

? Keith Lincoln, San Diego halfback, on why he played in the AFL All-Star Game despite an injured knee: "A low IQ helps."

? Toe Blake, coach of the Montreal Canadiens, on substitute goalies' grumbling over the new rule that requires them to be on the bench in full regalia during games: "They say it makes them stiff and sore. I've seen these same guys sit in a card game on a train for five solid hours without budging from their seats. They don't complain about being stiff and sore then."
