Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 20, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Pat Sullivan Did you hear the announcer say Sunday afternoon loan Beaton has just ended the football season for the Saskatchewan Beaton and the Edmonton Eskimos brought about my tot chance to win a bet in 1973. I had it all figured out if Ottawa and Saskatchewan had net in. the Canadian answer to the United States' Super he Grey Cup otherwise known as Super Drunk. The thoughts of the Rough Riders from Ottawa tangling with the Roughriders from Saskatchewan brought back fond nemories of the one football bet I didn't have to sweat over to win. I even bet with my head on this occasion. It was Wednesday of Grey Cup week and I had slipped in for i nice quiet glass of suds at one of Lethbridge's finer drinking istablishments. I had no sooner got in the door when I hear a loud remark 'Here's the know it all from the Sully Says name under which I became the voice booms. do you think is going to win he Grey Cup so I can bet the opposite I tried to ignore the guy but he was at a full table and using ny name almost in vain. upon his second challenge to make clear my I sauntered over to him knowing he knew very ittle about the game.

You lost I told him because both clubs are Roughriders and i decision must be reached in the game. My challenging friend and I are good friends to this day. if he and I were to bet on the weather and I said it was tun shiny and warm and he looked out and it was dark he still wouldn't bet. He would think it was an eclipse I had read about ind by the time he was back inside to the sun would once again by shining. Another thing the Edmonton victory did was take away yet mother great Grey Cup story out of Maple Sask. the lorne of my old friend and die-hard Roughie fan Don Pede. No one that I know is anymore of a fan to his club than Pede s to his beloved Jolly Green Giants from Stubble County. Old buddy Don bleeds when the Riders lose during the season but come Grey Cup he is in a world of his own. I think the best story to come out of Maple Creek was when Pede and his pals replayed the outcome of the Grey Cup As Pede would tell and if memory serves me ic and a bunch of Saskatchewan all guys for a booze and lull rented the Elks Hall in Maple Creek. was a sight to would tell me later. for an army and at least 40-ounce bottles of they whopped and hollered and ate every morsel in sight and then capped off the indoor activities by downing the East of the 20 bottles.

GOOD.'LETS 'OPE rT TAKES SOME OF THE STARCH OUT Delvecchio drops iron it has become a velvet glove A loud sigh of relief from Aintree says Grand National has a new life LONDON The Grand National widely regarded as the world's toughest horse Monday won another five-year lease of life in its never- ending battle to escape extinc- tion. The Aintree race course at Liverpool was sold to property developers for 17.5 million and they have promised to keep the race in existence for at least another five years. Mrs. Mirabel 82- year-old owner of the agreed to the sale after vow- ing at the end of last year's race that she would run it The deal is subject to Mrs. High Court agreement to remove a freeze on the sale of the course imposed by a. prospective who made an earlier unsuccessful bid to buy the track site. The century-old Grand which ranks as one of Britain's top annual sports has been under con- stantly suspended sentence of death since 1964. The case against the Aintree traditional home of the Grand National since Its inauguration in is finan- cial. In recent years there have been fewer than half a dozen racing days at Aintree each year and Grand National crowds to the seedy circuit set in unattractive environs of Liverpool. While revenue from racing has been the Aintree site has been growing in potential value for develop- ment for housing -and other purposes. Mrs. chairman of the firm which owns announced nine years ago that the course had been son fo a property company for development. But later in the High Court granted an injunction against the sale. It was sought by Lord who sold Aintree to the Tophams in 1M9 on the grounds that the proposed sale for develop- restrictive convenant requir- ing the land to be used only for horse racing or in part for purposes during his lifetime. This reprieve was ex- tinguished in 1966 when the Tophams appealed to the House of Lords against the decision and the lords upheld them. The Grand National was in jeopardy again. Various plans were initiated to raise sufficient money to save the but again the end seemed in sight when Mrs. Topham announced that they would not stage the Grand National after 1S73 and the Jockey Britain's rac- ing said it would not agree to its being transferred DETROIT Alex Delvecchio has picked up the gauntlet and turned it into a velvet glove. Coaches with iron fists of strong discipline didn't work for Detroit Red Wings. The team apparently needs the gentle handling of one of the National Hockey League's most prominent gentlemen to turn their sagging fortunes around. And turn around they ever since easy-going Del- vecchio was named coach Nov. ending a great 23-year playing career with Detroit. Chuvalo in action LONDON The Commonwealth heavyweight boxing Dan McAlinden of England may defend his title in Toronto against Canadian titleholder George it was dis- closed Monday. A spokesman for the Com- monwealth Boxing Committee said purse offers closed this weekend for a projected fight between the two and the best offer came from Toronto. The committee issued an ul- timatum earlier this yeartfor McAlinden to defend the Com- monwealth title against the burly Toronto fighter and in- vited purse offers to stage the bout. Two other bids were re- ceived from British promoters. Committee secretary Ray Clarke have now got to see what ancillary rights are offered in addition to the purse. But I must stress that they must be firm Observers said if the Cana- dian offer was McAlinden could go to Canada to defend his championship or give up the title. The Red who had a dismal 2-9-1 record under rookie coach Ted have won four of five games since Delvecchio took over. His of coaching is to have no system at all. don't believe in he said soon after accepting the coaching job. can't play hockey by a system. It's too fluid. You must make split-second decisions and you can't be wondering whether your split- second decisions fit into the system. just play common- sense hockey. The wingers will go up and down their wings and the defencemen will guard the goal. The same hockey we used to play back on the ponds when we were kids that's the way hockey should be played and we'll have Some players often were in Garvin's among them Marcel Dionne and Ace Bailey. Delvecchio doesn't have a doghouse. Dionne and Bailey have both played regularly under the new coach. Bailey scored two goals in Sunday's 6-4 triumph over de- fending Stanley Cup champion Montreal. a lot different when they let you Bailey said. players are game hockey players and others are practice hockey Delvecchio said in defence of lacklustre workouts Dionne. a game hockey who turned down a lucrative offer to join former team-mate Gordie Howe with the Houston Aeros of the World. Hockey made one major tactical change since taking over.

It probably was a direct result of Delvecchio's insistence that Norris get to know the players better. second all-time point maker in NHL history behind admitted more frustration coaching. But the former centre and who won the Lady Byng Trophy for sport- smanship three doesn't seem the least bit tense or frustrated in his new position. Riot fatal for youngster Argentina A young girl died and at least 25 people were in- jured when a soccer match in this north-east Argentine town exploded into a full-scale eye-witnesses said Monday. Fans of the local team ran riot Sunday when the visiting Rio Quarto of scored two goals within 20 minutes. A bottle hit a linesman on the head and the crowd hurled thousands of bricks at police who replied with teargas. As fighting spilled into the police called in fron- tier guards to help. They said rioters used pis- beer cans filled with sand and steel chairs ripped from the grandstands. The two-year-old girl who died was reported to have been hit on the head by a brick.
