? Harry Sinden, Boston Bruins coach, asked if Bobby Orr played one of his best games after the Bruins' star scored two goals and two assists against Minnesota: "Yes, I guess you can say it was one of his best games—he's had about 70 of them."
? Abe Lemons, Oklahoma City basketball coach, asked whether he had spotted former Jacksonville Coach Joe Williams, former OCU player under Lemons, as a future success in the coaching ranks: "Why, certainly. I knew when he was a freshman he would go a long way. The first road trip he made as a freshman he ordered frogs legs at $4.25."
? Juan Marichal, Giants' $125,000 pitcher, on baseball's innovations to help hitters: "They give them everything. They've shortened the fences, lowered the mound, reduced the strike zone and put in AstroTurf. Someday they might stop after every hitter on every club asks for $150,000."
