A List of Lists (April 30) by Phil Pepe and Zander Hollander was a total delight. I had thought, before reading it, that I was the only one in the world left who still remembered who Bill Rohr was! However, Messrs. Pepe and Hollander missed one event which would have qualified for two categories: Roberto de Vicenzo's failure to check his scorecard in the 1968 Masters, before signing an incorrect one, cost him a tie for the lead after 72 holes and the chance of a playoff with Bob Goalby, the winner. This certainly was one of the most famous sports boners ever. Furthermore, de Vicenzo uttered one of the most famous sports quotes ever upon learning of his error: "What a stupid I am!"

I particularly liked the All-Star baseball teams and offer my own for J. Paul Getty:
Singing the national anthem is Johnny Paycheck.
Your article was especially welcomed by this Viking fan because someone has finally forgotten Jim Marshall's boner of running a fumble recovery the wrong way. This oversight made the whole article worthwhile.
Your List of Lists had two very notable omissions. You must include Billy Cannon, Heisman Trophy winner and D.D.S., among your Athletic Doctors, and the Athletes Who Became Actors list is incomplete without Johnny Weissmuller.
Your list omitted a great cowboy actor—Johnny Mack Brown, an All-America halfback at the University of Alabama.

The only way Rusty Staub could steal a base would be if he were to sneak into a baseball park at 2 a.m.

Why any man would change his name to Graziano from Barbella is beyond my comprehension.
