HI-YO SILVER AWARD—To NBC's Grandstand for showing Ivanjica's win in the Prix de I' Arc de Triomphe at Longchamp, then cutting away when the horse pitched Jockey Freddy Head to the ground, thus leaving the viewers to wonder if the rider was alive or dead and if the horse was running loose through the streets of Paris.
CORRECTIVE SNEAKER AWARD—To Wonder Woman star Lynda Carter for doing acrobatics in harness on The Battle of the Network Stars and never landing correctly.
SHEER GALL AWARD—To Atlanta Braves President Ted Turner, who also just happens to own TV station WTCG (Channel 17) in Atlanta, for issuing $1 million free-agent Andy Messersmith uniform No. 17, then persuading him to wear the word Channel—instead of his name—above the number.
PUBLIC DEFENDER AWARD—To Commissioner and lawyer Bowie (No Overcoat) Kuhn, who assumed that his job entitled him to prevent Howard Cosell, a sometime critic of baseball, from announcing baseball's championship series on ABC.
