Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 29, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta TOI IFTHBRIDGE HCTALO Mdoy, Junt W, 1973 MaraiM SULLY SAYS -By Pat Sullivan you imagine a bark- outside a circus tent selling football? Well, neither can I. But in comparison, the selling job promoters of the Canadian Football League are doing on our neighbors south of the border, that's all that is need- ed, believe me. "Why wait 'til the pitch echoes. "See Ameri- can college football stars in action every Wednesday on Pro Football from Canada. It's the only football game in Outside of the enormous identification problem, the Canadian game is well-re- ceived. The CFL and Syndi- cast Services took a whirl at the U.S. market last year and were happy with what they learned. The U.S. expo- sure was cut short last year due to lack cf sponsorship, not fan support. "We don't think it is a gamble at said Wayne Baruch, vice president of Syndicast. "It's a very viable property." Jake Gaudaur. commission- er of the nine team CFL, has trouble controlling Ms excitement when he talks about the Canadian brand of football. 'It's more wide open, more he said during Canada's brand of foot- ball looks more than a little familiar to the American fan. Quarterbacks scrambling put of the pocket to escape blitz- ing linemen, slanting receiv- ers catching passes in the middle of traffic caused by linebackers, runners barrel- ling up the field on draw glays and injured gladiators being helped from the field. But there is a difference. Much like a steak where the brand is still fresh and one where the look of flat coal has taken over, the CFL has its own identity. Passers throw on second down, punters appear for duty after two downs, no one calls for a fair catch and town during the baseball sea- son." The new bid, which began last Wednesday with the re- run of the 1972 Grey Cup from Hamilton, is strictly a summer romance. All told, American viewers on 80 sta- tions, will see four pre-sea- son games, five regular sea- son encounters and then the 1973 Grey Cup. Wednesday evening they saw the 1973 All Star game and should have been pleased with what they saw. However, that's another story in itself. an interview recently. "There's more emphasis on speed, agility, offence. People enjoy seeing the long bomb and we feel we provide them with that type of excitement.'' Gaudaur agrees that what is missing is the identifica- tion of players by American audiences. Although 50 per cent of the players are Amer- icans and another 20 per cent are Canadians who played college football in the U.S., few are household names in the United States. People in the CFL cities and others have heard of Johnny Rodgers and Joe Theisman and a few others. But how many Americans have hard of George Reed or a few years back Russ Jack- son? Not many. kickoffs are brought out of the end zone. To help close the identifi- cation gap, the CFL has sign- ed 19 college draft choices from the U.S., including Rod- gers the All-America wide receiver from Nebraska. He becomes the second Heis- mann trophy winner in three years to join the CFL after Theismann inked an Argo- naut contract in Toronto two years ago. The Canadian game is cat- ching on. It goes without say- ing that each year becomes bigger and better than the last one. But do we really want to sell another truly Cana- dian product to the United States? Minor baseball In Norcrest Little League the Dodgers belted the Cubs 8-1 as Xeni Ohno was the winner over Luther Reedyk. Craig and Blair Nyrose each had two hits for the winners while Dick Resdyk and Troy Hovey each had two for the Cubs. Also In Norcrest the Giants clobbered the Expos 13-3 as Bill Orr, in relief of Mark Jtizzi was the winner on a five- hitter. The loss went to Clark Bosch.

It was also a brother act for ths Giants as Mark Srucs belt- ed three singles and Jamie two. At Lakeside, the Angeles trimmed the White Sox 9-2 as Allan Gepneris fanned 13 wMle allowing just three hits. Camp- bell Magyar was the loser. Gepneris helped his own cause with a double and two singles while Gordon Tait added two singtes. Neil Povey stroked a double and single in a losing cause. John Wagontall struck out 15 as he paced the Dodgers to a 16-7 win over the Padres in Norcrest League action. Gor- don Tokariuk was the loser. Dave Koskoski went five-for five for the winners with a double and four singles but the hitting star was Keith Miya- shiro with a single, three doubles and a home run. To- kariuk managed a home run and a single for the Padres. Secretariat Niimero Uno CHICAGO (AP) 1, that's Secretariat. And that's how he's being treated for his Arlington Park appearance Sat- urday.

Borg overcame Meiler 6-4, 6-4, 3-6, 2-6 and 6-3. Oliver oozes confidence at bat Dodgers lose a three-hitter By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Confidence, thy name is Al Oliver. Hitting that little base- ball with his big bat just never has worried the Pittsburgh out- fielder. "Every day when I come to the ball park, I know I'm going to hit said Oliver. "I just hope it falls." It fell four times for Oliver Thursday night. He had a single, two doubles and a triple, driving in three runs in Pitts- burgh's 6-0 National League baseball victory over St. Louis. In other National League games, ?an Francisco Giants edged Houston Astros 2-1 in 10 innings, San Diego Padres edged Cincinnati Reds 6-1, Philadelphia Phillies defeated New York Mets 11-4, and At- lanta Braves split a double- header with Los Angeles Dodg- ers, winning the first game 3-2 and losing the second 8-3.

ALLOWS FIVE HITS Dock Ellis coasted past the Cardinals on a five-hitter and Willie Stargell accounted for the first two Pirate runs wiht his 300th career homer, one short of the Pirate club record held by Ralph Kiner. San Francisco won its sixth straight extra inning game, nip- ping the Astros on Gary Mat- thews' 10th inning triple. Garry Maddox, who had singled, raced home with the deciding run on Matthews' hit. Jim Barr went the distance for the Giants, spacing six hits to get the victory. San Diego used home runs by Nate Colbert and Clarence Gas- ton to back Clay Kirby's six-hit pitching against Cincinnati. HUTTON HITS PAIR Tom Hutton boomed a pair of home runs and Del Unser tagged one, leading Phila- delphia past the Mets. Montreal struggled into the 18th inning before beating Chi- cago in the completion of their suspended game. Bob Bailey, who had hit two homers in the game earlier, singled home win- ning pitcher Bill Stoneman with the deciding run. Frazier fights Bugner Monday LONDON (AP) Joe Frazier was happy at the end of a train- ing session Thursday, saying: "I'm back to my old self again." The former world heavy- weight boxing, champion who fights Monday against Eu- ropean titleholder Joe Bugner was in an exuberant mood after a fierce four rounds of sparring followed by a violent tattoo on the punching bag. "I am doing the things I used to Frazier said. "I can move in on a man when I want to. I can get away when I want to." Bailey had homered in the 13th when the game was re- sumed but Ron Santo's second of the gams tied it for the Cubs again. In the regularly-scheduled game, Rick Monday whacked a pair of homers, the second one a two-run shot that broke a sev- enth inning tie and moved the Cubs to their victory. The split kept the Cubs a fat 7Vi games ahead of second- place Montreal in the NL East. Carew tired, so stole home By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS There's no place like home so Rod Carew decided steal it.

CAUGHT ONCE Carew, who has run while the pitchers' backs were turned 11 times, has only regretted it once. "It's the 10th time I've done it in 11 said Carew, who tied the major league mark for theft: of home with seven in 1969. "They've been watching me pretty close since he added. "This was my first one of the year. I noticed Broberg was us- ing a long windup and bluffed the steal once. When he didn't look my way I decided to go." Roger Manager Whitey Her- zog can't say he didn't warn Broberg. "We told him that Carew was going to try it, but he didn't pay any Herzog said. Tlie world champion A's com- pleted their climb back to first place with the help of a Vida Blue who again looked like the pitcher who was the best in the league two years ago. Biue only surrendered three hits, before giving way to Tollie Fingers in the eighth, for the victory over Kansas City. It was Blue's third triumph in a raising his record to 7-3. Atlanta managed only three hits against Los Angeles in the first game of their double- header, but two of them were homers by Mike Lum and Dar- rell Evans and the Braves beat the Dodgers. Los Angeles gained the split in the nightcap, assembling 17 hits to win easily. Dave Lopes had three hits in each game for the Dodgers, who lead the West by 5'4 games over San Fran- cisco.

FORD DOUG DUNLOP LEASING LTD. 1510 Mayor Magrath Drivo Specializing in: INDIVIDUAL OR FLEET LEASING CARS or TRUCKS CALL BOB DAVIDSON (leasing Contullant) Phone 328-8861 "PROFITS EARNED THKOUGH THE USE NOT THE OWNERSHIP" SHORT TERM LONG TERM _____Iniuronce and Mointenonta Provided on R'queitl Squeals out for Bjorn WIMBLEDON, England (AP) Bjorn Borg, tennis' teen-age heartthrob, has a request, for his young admirers at Wimble- don: Don't squeal so much when he's playing. He's a tennis player, not a rock star, and the noise is liable to put him off. Borg, a handsome 17-year-old Swede, is the sensation of this year's Wimbledon. To the youngsters, he more than makes up for the absence of all the top male stars who are boycotting the tournament this year. FOLLOWED BY GIRLS A solid phalanx of his idoliz- ing fans pack the corridor out- side his dressing room, and whenever he finishes a match he disappears under an onrush of autograph hunters. It's beginning to affect his play. Thursday, in the outstanding match of the tournament so far, sixth and the youngest ever to be given a nearly dropped a five-set, third-round match against Karl Meiler, the Ger- man Davis Cup player. He re- covered just in time to win 6-4, 6-J, 3-6, 2-6, 6-3. The other idol of the crowds is Hie Nastase, the Romanian bad boy of the European dr- cuits. This year he's been celebrat- ing his top seed by clowning it up off court. He appeared the first day disguised in a wig, a drooping mustache and a floppy bat. Then he appeared dressed as an ice cream vendor. But on court back trouble that plagued him in pre-Wimbledon tournaments returned for his second round match and sent him hurrying to a medical spe- cialist. He got a clean bill of health, and expects to play his third round match against Tosh- iro Saki of Japan. Besides Borg, two other Taylor of Britain and Jan Kodes of Czech- already through to the last 16. The only Ameri- can in the seeded ranks this year is Jimmy Connors of Belleville, El., scheduled to play Bob Simpson of New Zealand Friday. Also fighting for places in the last 16 will be Juergen Fassben- der of Germany, seeded eighth, who plays Ray Keldie of Aus- tralia; Alex Metreveli, fourth seed from Russia, to play John Cooper of Australia, and Owen Davidson of Australia, seeded seventh, to play Eric Ewert of Australia.
