"Don't get me wrong. The Hawks are wonderful fellas. I'd love to play with them. The five backcourt men are great. What can you say about Martin besides he's a real pro? The only veteran in the league under 6 foot and he's starting his 11th season. Jack McMahon went to my school. I've known him for years. And Al Ferrari. He's one of the hustlingest ballplayers I've ever seen; 6-foot-4 and he moves. Green. Well, he's Sihugo; he can jump with men four inches taller. And Johnny McCarthy. Why, John took time to give me advice. Things like 'If you get pushed, push back' and 'Remember to pace yourself.'
"I guess it sounds like I have this height business on the brain. I don't. It never kept me from helping a team before and it won't now. You know, all I want is a chance to play." He paused for a moment of thought. "I'm working out now with a kid named Ivan Kovac," he said. "He's a soph at St. John's this year and I call him the Comet. He's that fast. If he comes around, St. John's will be a terror. He's only 5 foot 10 but they need someone like him in the backcourt."
The only organization in Great Britain that could have gotten away with it has imposed a fine on Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth.
England's aristocratic and autocratic Jockey Club assessed her the usual £50 ($140) for failing to advise them three days before the running of the Champion Stakes at Newmarket that she was withdrawing her horse, Above Suspicion.
The Queen can afford it. Her horses have won her nearly half a million dollars in four years. And the Jockey Club isn't worried, either. Its exclusive membership includes six dukes, one of whom is the delinquent Queen's own husband.
Score It By Rounds
