? Jerome Whitehead, Marquette basketball player, after a tour to Rio de Janeiro and S�o Paulo: "It's an unbelievable situation when 25,000 people are booing you and throwing cups and garbage at you. It's like the whole country was Notre Dame."

? Lou Holtz, recently hired New York Jets coach: "We're building a house on Long Island. Yeah, that's pretty optimistic. It's a little like doing a crossword puzzle with a pen."

?Larry Hale, Houston defenseman, after the Aeros were routed in the WHA finals by Winnipeg, whose roster includes eight Swedes: "The first thing I'm going to do is burn my Volvo."

? J. C. Snead, pro golfer, on the gallery annoyance that bothers him the most: "Someone who jingles coins in his pocket. On a cold day especially. It's worse then because they all have their hands in their pockets. It sounds like the checkout counter at the Piggly Wiggly."
