way through a fact of no particular signifigance except that it gives me an excuse to write on some general subject easy to write I in stead of actually having to work on one narrow topic hard to its Predictions For The Rest Of Hockey Who right for the three or four of you who its definitely fun For the rest of now that the toolong regular season and the joke early playoff rounds are theres some good action going The teams thai didnt deserve Ui make the playoffs in the first place have all been and the four that anleft are playing well enough for a nonhockey fan to tune in on the cable and maybe even like As far as predictions 1 like Wayne Gretsky and the Edmonton Oilers to win it partially because the Boston Bruins and New York Islanders will have used up all their energy beating each other up in an seven game Basketball The only quarterfinal in doubt is the BostonMilwaukee and that doesnt matter Moses Malune and the 7fiers will beat whoever Look for a thrilling sevengame Western Conference with surprise the San Antonio Spurs edging the has a few too many Artis Gilmore can handle Karcem and the Spurs are they wont be rolling enough to get past the In tin I like Philly in maybe Baseball My opinions havent changed much since the start of tin but I do have some reser Im not nearly as confident about the Chicago White Sox in the West Brett and the Royals are and the Rangers are a pleasant But its early I also may have given up on tin Astros too Theyre still in no danger of winning a but theyve got a decent shot at an abovc And right most Astros fans will take I still like the Yankees and the Expos and I still am fairly certain about the even though the Braves have not made their expected fold And I still like the Expos to go all the Pro football I said this was going t take care of the rest of didnt The Oilers did very vvel in the draft and may be a team this Ixok for Earl Campbell to again be a running back who strikes fear in opposing defenses while the coaches look for someone who can play well enough to earn the quar terback job on a permanent The Landry promised to get tough with the team following their NFC final loss to San and they came back and lost the NFC final This Ixiiulry promises preseason camp will be really I suppose if they lose Imnlry will 1 mean it this Camp will be really extra Im becoming the Cowboys are very and one probably very they will win the Super Bowl But the Cowboys are just another team in that top echelon that includes San Diego and Miami and some other teams that rotate in and out Its not that the Cowboys are the single best team despite what the really rabid Cowboy fans but that theyre innny Die best year after Ixiok at it that and the Dallas playoff losses become more un In the frenzied fans the Cowboys are the best bar every year its only a freak or an unexpected great per formance by an opposing or some intangible mental letdown that keeps Dallas from winning il I disagree Dallas is merely as good as the rest of the top And like the rest of the top its turn to win it all will Maybe even this College football Whos to say1 So many good so many great 1 sort of like a very good team last season that lost practically nobody to Some of last years powers were decimated by in one by the Penn Pitt and North among will feel the sting of falling off the peak and being back in the pack with the In the Southwest Arkansas should be an early The Aggies should be better some critics could say they could hardly be better enough to get the former students off Jackie Shemils back and gel a bowl Texas and Houston have strong enough programs to be In next to Texas is probably the next logical High school football perhaps too early to But to go out on limb New Braunfels could be even better than last Replacing Earl Wilson will be the tallest but an im proved offensive line could make the Greg Bender has the talent tn even butter than Craig Wer sterfer at but he must also deliver the intangible leadership qualities Wersterfer An over whelming returning defense on top of it all means playoffs again for the The Canyon Cougars will continue their upward and will break the mark with Ron Hit timans elbow injury is a question but with more and more athletes trying out for the and continued stability in the coaching the Cougars could surprise A onetwo finish in District 134A from the two Comal County teams whilestill a more than pure The Smilhson Valley Rangers should also break the mark as participation increases and the team gains even more talent and ex The resignation of head coach Rick Calhoun clouds the though coaching continuity has always been a problem at Smithson Valley and until a decision is made on who will fill the top its hard to tell how the learn will Trivia and silliness Billy Martin will last the season with the Yankees without being Ed Biles of the Oilers may not be so and the Astros Bob Lillis may get the not because he deserves but because owner John McMulten likes to fire people every so often just to reassure himself hes still in Will Canyon beat New Braunfels in football this year Probably but they will real And itll be the best thing to have happened for the relationship between the two schools in a long The Philadelphia Stars will win the USFLs version of the Super Howl I dont even know what they call and Kelvin Bryant will be the
