?Tom Workman, former NBA-ABA basketball player: "They tell you to join the NBA and see all the big cities: New York with all the lights, San Francisco with its night life, San Diego's sunshine. They also say join the ABA and see the U.S.A. Unfortunately, I found this included Steubenville, Ohio, Amarillo, Texas, Elko, Nevada, Cedar City, Utah and Biloxi, Mississippi."

? Jim Sweeney, Washington State football coach, on the delayed running play in which WSU Halfback Bernard Jackson hid the ball between his legs, then pulled it out and ran 46 yards to score: "One of the defensive players came in and actually laid his hand on Bernard's head, just like a bishop. It was as though he were commissioning him, 'Go, my son, into the promised land.' "
