?Bernie (Boom Boom)Geoffrion, Atlanta Flames coach, on how he would like to handle the Philadelphia Flyers, National Hockey League penalty champions last year: "If I could talk Jimmy Brown into coming out of retirement and then get the Flames to sign Larry Csonka and Dick Butkus, I'd take a week to teach them how to skate. Then, the next time Philadelphia came to town, I'd put the three of them on the same line."
?Duffy Dyer, New York Mets reserve catcher, discussing possible trades: "I hope that when Yogi Berra sits down to talk trades, he'll do just what he did this season—forget about me completely."
? Frank Howard, former Clemson football coach, on Bear Bryant's $100,000 contribution to the University of Alabama for scholarships: "Ol' Bear's getting religious. Now he's tithing one-tenth of his income."
