? Earl Foreman, owner of the Virginia Squires, on claims that he sold top performers at the expense of the team: "It's not a pleasant thing to hear, but I did what I had to do out of necessity. This is not a public utility. I can't ask for a fare increase when things go bad."

? Frank Beard, touring golf pro, on the slowness of the game: "We're on television an hour and a half, but you probably see only five minutes of action. Compared to a sport like hockey, golf can be one of the most boring shows on TV."

? Bill Stoneman, Montreal Expo pitcher, on why he did not use an agent to negotiate his contract this season: "You don't need a lawyer to tell the club you had a lousy year."

? Ned Harkness, looking around for a job after resigning as general manager of the Detroit Red Wings: "I once told my wife that at least I could always pump gas, but now I can't even do that."
