[Thumb Down]To the U.S. Youth Soccer Association officials who nullified the under-12 regional title won by the Kirkwood (Del.) Wildcats because they had unknowingly supplied a ball that was slightly larger than regulation in their 3-1 win over the Bethesda (Md.) Dragons. The game was replayed, and the Wildcats lost 2-1.
[Thumb Down]To CKTB in Saint Catharines, Ont., for temporarily refusing to broadcast news about the local Class A Blue Jays because the club stopped purchasing ad time on the radio station.
