Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 30, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta FLORIDA-WEST INDIES CRUISES 7 dtyt Tempi 7 Cirlbtxin CrulM Cclgiry Frldcy, Commencing Jan. 10, occupcncy) ART WILLIAMS TRAVEL Mall 328-3201 Third Section Pat Sullivan Namath A man to admire The National Football League is three weeks from comple- .ion of its 1974 season. When the curtain rings down Dec. 15 it will also bring to an end one of the greatest careers in the game's history. It is pure speculation on my part, but I can't see Joe Vamath playing another year with the New York Jets. Weeb rCwbank has already decided he will not return to the Jets as lead coach and I believe Namath will be next in line. Namath was like the Cassius Clay of football in my opinion in 1969 when he guided the Jets to an upset Super Bowl win over Baltimore Colts. His arrogant manner made me sick of a man I had never net and in all likelihood, never will. I wanted Namath to get his. You see, I was a Colt fan ohnny Unitas was my man and the Jets and Manath made fools >f him and the Colts. We all learn, don't we? My respect for Namath has grown over the years. It reach- >d a peak Sunday afternoon when he passed his Jets to an upset over Miami Dolphins. It is not beating the Dolphins that is so amazing. The Jolphins have been almost human this year losing on two other iccassions. What does amaze me is the intestinal fortitude that Namath as displayed, this year in particular. It would be the simplest ling for him to hang up his famous white shoes and take off his 4o. 12 jersey and say goodbye to the game. Namath, it can be said, does not owe football a thing. If I had sat down and written this column a few years ago I rould have gone to great lengths to tell you what an overrated gotist Joe Willie Namath is. I'm glad I didn't. Namath joined the Jets after a successful college career un- er Bear Bryant at Alabama. The Jets signed him for the Imost unbelievable sum of The howls were loud and jng on how one man was not worth that kind of money. I don't have to tell you that I agreed with most of them. But i my case it was envy more than anything and yet I never had ic talent to even think myself approaching his level. It simply made me mad that some college hotshot could eece the public for almost half a million dollars without even laying a game Namath's name stuck in my craw for a long time but that is 11 over and done with. I am now an ardent admirer of his. In a way Namath reminds me a great deal of Mickey lantle. It was the same thing with him. I am a Dodger fan and lantle and his pinstriped playmates used to thump my Dodgers i the World Series with great regularity. It took some time for le to warm to Mantle. But now I often think about just how good Mantle would ave been with two healthy legs. The same goes for Namath. Each and every time Namath steps on a football field he ikes a chance on suffering an injury that could cripple him for fe. After four knee operations the doctors have nothing left to tend them if they became hurt again. Namath loves football 10 much to give it up without a fight. But he has got a fight on his hands now. His father is in condition in Beaver Falls, N.Y. He is suffering from nphesema and a gall bladder attack. Namath and his father are very close. His father has but le wish. Only one thing will make him happy. He wants Joe to lit the game of football. It now appears that Namath, the same guy that gave his first contract to his brothers and his brother in law, will as his father asks. lurling egistration or girls Registrations are open for 1 girls wishing to curl in the 'thbridge curling playdowns r the Canada Winter Games.

Shopping Mall MMrtn (403) EM.7411 FILING CABINETS LCC President 9s Invitational underway Pages 21 to 32 Kodiaks, Montana win opening games By GARRY ALLISON Herald Sports Writer Lethbridge Community College Kodiaks may have defeated Mount Royal Cougars of Calgary 90-74 in the opening round of the President's Invitational Basketball Tournament Fri- day night at the LCC but Kodiak coach Ben Brooks wasn't too pleased with the win. "It's terrible to come out of a game that you've just won and you can't feel satisfied with your the LCC mentor stated. "We are not running our systems at all. That's why we had so many turnovers When they pressure us we are not reacting properly to that pressure. We're not using what we've learned in prac- tice." On the plus side of the ledger for the Kodiaks coach Brooks was quite pleased with the way his club was moving the ball. "We were advancing the ball well throughout a good portion of the game but in many instances we were following that good movement up with some questionable shooting." In the opening game of the evening Northern Montana College bested the Kodiak Grads 84-81 in a close contest. The 1974 75 edition of the Kodiaks opened quickly in their game with the Cougars, leading 16-3 with barely four minutes gone in the game. By the half the Kodiaks were ahead by a 54-37 margin. At one point midway through the second half the LCC club had a 27 point bulge on their opposition. If the Kodiak shooting had main- tained its 44% pace throughout the game they would have easily passed the 100 point mark They ended up with a 39% average for the contest. The big shooter for the winners was Greg Hess, who coach Brooks credited with playing a fine first half. Hess hooped 19 points. Steady working Kendon Eakett was next in line with 16. Curtis Travis had 15 for the Kodiaks and Dave Preus and Al Pard canned 12 each. Stew Bauck was tops for the Cougars with 16 points and Clark Dennill chipped in with 13. Al Park and Curtis Travis played solid two way games for the winners while hustling John Jasiukiewicz proved there is still room for a good little man in basketball. Though he only added two points to the Kodiak total he was all over the floor on defence and worked hard setting up offence plays. The Northern Montana College Kodiak Grad game was a see saw battle all the way through with the Montana boys finally ending up with the three point edge. 84-81. The Grads held a 42-39 lead at the half but seemed to tire just a little in the final stanza. The game was tied on six different occasions, once 'as late as the 11 minute mark of the second half. Montana upped their lead to eight points with remain- ing but the Grads fought back to bring it back to a three point difference with less than two minutes to play. Gary Williams played a strong game for the Grads, stealing the ball a number of times and setting up many Grad scoring drives. He also was top scorer for the team with 24 points, 18 of which came in the first half. Mike Evans, who also played a strong game both ways, was the leading Mon- tana point getter, hooping 19 points. Dave Barta was next in line for the winners with 17 points. Alec Dudas' hot shooting hand from outside was good for 17 points for the Grads. Basketball action in the round robin tournament con- tinued through this afternoon and will wind up tonight with the Kodiak Grads meeting Mount Royal College at and the final game pitting the LCC Kodiaks against Northern Montana College at 8-30. REBOUNDS... A capacity crowd of 450 took in the open- ing night's action LCC Grads looked pretty good con- sidering they hadn't held a full practice together Wendall Cahoon wasn't dressed for the Kodiaks he had another engagement he was married Thursday night Bruce Millis of the Grads was assessed three technical fouls at once in the Grad Montana game and ejected from the contest. Northern Montana tried stalling tactics with about three minutes left in their game but it almost backfired as the Grads pulled to within three points Kodiaks were behind 1-0 before the clock started to run Kodiak Dave Preus was given a technical foul for dunking the ball during the warmup Sir Curtis Travis is a show all by himself., ..the energetic Los Angeles holler- guy is a bundle of excess energy on the court.
