Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 13, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta y, 13, THf LETHW.lDCf HERAIO 7 This ims just one off-beat quote from 1972 We'll take 'em in eight straight' By BFICCE I.EVETT Canadian Sports Editor Tne most off-beat sports quote of l'J72 was "We'll take 'em in eight straight." Few would admit giving tongue to that little gern. hut moit of the sports writers and broadcasters voting in the Ca- nadian Press year-end poll picked five words as the most outrageous observation of the For those of you who have to be reminded, the "we" is Canada, the "em" is the viet Union, and "eight straight" refers to what "v-e" were supposed to do in the j Moscow-Canada hoc-key tour- nament.

SULLY SAYS -By Pat Sullivan j c S T JUST caught the tail end of a recent sport from an .American network and the announcer was saying "yes, ladies and gentlemen, 1972 was a pretty good year for Jack Nicklaus." NickSaus, v.'ho reads like a legend during the annual Professional Golfers Association tour, did in- deed have a pretty good year. Christmas fast approaching and snow all over the place I realize it doesn't seem like the time to be writing a column on golf. Hov.-ever, I think Nicklaus will be the athlete of the year when the ex- perts put their votes on paper and the United States winner is announced. When ever you hear Nicklaus mentioned you aiso hear Arnold Palmer, Billy Casper, Lee Trevino and other superstars of the golf set. He is made to sound ancient. Not up until this particular broadcast did I do a little research. I was truthfully surprised to find out NickJaus is just 32 years old. I srn fully aware that Bobby Orr and Johnny Bench are superstars in major league hockey and baseball Bench just turned 25 and Orr will be 2-5 in March of next year. Possibly by the time they are 32 the record books will be bulging with their achievements. There's no doubt they have a whale of a jump on things right now.
