Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 29, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THJ LSTHBRIDGE HERAID fridoy, Ucccmbor 29, 197? SULLY SAYS 1 -By Pal Si Brilliant final to two-day affair N' the telephone rang just over a week and Dwight Jensen of. the Club told me Johnny Unitas was coininc: in -Oth Sporismaji's Dinner Feb. 3. I didn't for one m.iuite believe him. I'm not saying that Dv.khi is in the habit of stretching the truth. On the crr.'raiy, he is a very trustworthy guy. You can usv.a'.iy count on him. es- pecially when the Kinsmen Dinner is on the horizon, to be very co-operative and My reaction to his announcement v.'as a similar one to Reno Lizzi's when I told the Dodgers had traded Frank Robinson and four others for two Cali- fornia Angels. "You're pulling my was what Lizzi said. Xo'.v I know how Reno fcU I told Jensen to "get But he assured ir.e he wav.'l kidding and '.is you all know now. Johnny t" win be here for the Dinner. Jensen knows my feelinis about L'nitas. He has to be considered one of the greatest, if not the great- est, quarterback in National Football League history. As a passer there are very few. if ajiy. records he does not hold or has at least held in his brilliant career.

But once again, time waits for 710 one. Unitas will be 40 years old before another NFL season starts. He has, however, shown no signs of leaving the game. Xo. 19 has not said he will hang up his famous high-top boots but he was visibly upset when the cur- tain rang down on 1972. "This has probably been the worst season I've ever spent in pro football.'' said L'nilas as he stripped off his Colt uniform for the last time this year.' "I don't plan to spend another one like it." Unitas says he v.'iil keep a promise to end his football career in a Baltimore uniform. He said he would take his time deciding where to go. He didn't rule out the possibility of joining another dtih or staying in the Colt organization, where he has a standing 10-year contract. "It's up to me if I want to keep it (the con- said the 39-year-old L'nitas. "So far. all the decisions have been made for me this he added. "Now I'm going to wait until July and make my own decision. Unitas reierred to the orders given by Colt gen- eral manager Joe Thomas, who early in the season fired head coach Don McCaft'erty arid later interim boss John Sandusky. Unitas was benched in favor of Marty Domres and the horror ot inactivity besari. Unitas %vas only or.e of several former Colt stalwarts another wa- btcx Tom who found thernse-lve; passed, by because of the team's youth rr.ovemer.' i Knowing he can p'sy fo-.'oal! ;ay; "oldtirners car: this vo'j i "I haven't better in three or :0'ir years." he commented vryly. "After all I've rest." So when Feb. 3 rolls: around I hope to be front row centre to meet Unitas. It will be more than interesting to hear his side o; the Baltimore Colt Even now, Mr. Jensen.
