CENTRE VILLAGE MALL, LETHBRIDGE PHONK 328-8021 -By Pat Sullivan J DIDN'T have too much to say about the Canada- Russia hockey series while it was in progress, in Canada. One of the reasons was that I saw half the games while on holidays. But the biggest reason, and the only good one if avoiding an issue can be described, in part, as being good, was that I was disappointed. I hate to see a grown man cry, but I certainly felt like it in three of the four games. This wasn't happening to players from the Na- tional Hockey League! There was no way possible for the Russians to outclass players who are the idols of all hockey fans in the country! It was a had dream that would soon end. Did you ever have a dream about something that frightened you, and then awaken to feel satisfied it could never happen? Don't you recall being told, as a youngster, what you dream never conies true? I felt sorry during the series, but I can't help believing it was myself I was feeling sorry for. It didn't matter to me that the cream of the crop from the NHL was suffering humiliation. I wanted satis- faction from players I had worshipped and idolized, and I wasn't getting it. They had no right to subject me and the rest of Canadian hockey fans to such a performance. Despite the fact they won the second game of the series it didn't seem to matter. The damage had been done. I felt that the entire Team Canada owed me something. They were in my debt. I have no doubt in my mind whatsoever that I would have continued to feel that way if I hadn't watched the game from Vancouver. How do you apologize to a hockey team after people express the feelings of an entire nation? How do you tell them you're sorry you didn't realize they were playing their best? Being selfish, you felt slighted. I never once, until last Friday, realized that Phil Esposito wouldn't think of playing his heart out for the Boston Bruins like he did with Team not with just three weeks of practice. I'm using Esposito as an example because he said it best. "We didn't deserve the treatment we got here to- he said after the game in Vancouver. "If the Russian fans boo their team like the Van- couver people did us tonight, I will personally come back and apologize." Esposito won't have to apologize. The Russian club, win, lose or draw, will not be booed. Their fans appre- ciate and recognize a solid effort regardless of. the outcome. Only we, self-acclaimed, sophisticated fans would dare be so brash as to bring down a barrage of dis- satisfaction upon our Team Canada. We, as much as Hockey Canada, Alaji Eagleson and the NHL, brought about the series with Russia. We didn't care when it was played, where it was played or under what rules. We were ready. What fools we mortals be. course we were ready. But we don't have to be in top condition to watch and criticize. We may say we have the right. I fail to see where we do. No one will say to me "I hope you're proud of yourself after Friday's exhibition." I don't really have the right to criticize because I took no chances. I can take either side. 1 can be right at all times and I can also be ashamed. We, as Canadians, had 35 hockey players battling to do their best. In fact, I would go so far as to say, they performed above and beyond the call of duty. Team Canada has everything to lose and nothing to gain. They have lost two games to Russia and we have made them feel they have lost our respect. There are four more games left, all of them in a foreign country. 1 hope, in these four games that we, the fans regain some of our respect, and that we can redeem ourselves. I have no doubts in my mind that Team Canada will forgive and forget. They know we mean well. We just have not learned how to lose. Lord Killanin has own ideas the showers with a two-run home by Ben Oglivie in Ihe sev- enth that brought Lyle, now one save shy of the American League record for saves set by Ron Pcrranoski in 1970 and two away from the major league mark established by Wayne Granger the same year. Fryman carried a 3-1 lead into the ninth inning against Baltimore but the Orioles nicked him for a run and had the bases loaded when Hiller came on. He struck out pinch hitter Boog Powell and then Paul Blair bounced inlo game-ending force out. Matty Alou drove in four runs for the Athletics and Darold Knowles hurled five innings of one-hit relief (o nail clown the victory. Harmon Killebrew had a three-run homer for Minnesota. DICK STRIKES AGAIN Dick Allen drilled a two-run homer in the first 35th of the the White Sox off to their victory over Kansas City. It was the second consecutive game in which Allen has delivered a two-run shot in the first inning. Bill Gpgolewski pitched 7 2-3 liitlcss innings before Califor- nia's Billy Parker spoiled his no-hit bid with a double as Texas blanked the Angels. Gogolewski had not won a game since May 19. George Scott's two-run single in the bottom of the eighth in- ning lifted Milwaukee past Cleveland in the second game of their doubleheader, called by rain after eight innings. The rain washed out a three-run rally by the Indians in the top of the ninth. In the opener, the Brewers rallied for two runs in the eighth to win it. LUSANNE, Switzerland (Reu- ter) Lord Killanin of Ireland, new president of the Inter- national Olympic Committee, said Tuesday be would like to deflate ultra-nationalism in the Olympic Games. He told correspondents after taking over the office from 85- year-old American Avery Bnm- dage, who has dominated the Olympic scene for 20 years, that there is nothing wrong with being proud of one's conn- try or with teams carrying flags as they enter the area. "But a tremendous amount of flags increases nationalism and with the demonstrations end anthems after each event they seem an attempt to denote that one country's way is better than the 58-year-old peer said. Asked whether he thinks lore had been ultra-nalion- sm at Munich, Lord Killanin d: "When we lock at the nited Stales and the Soviet nion, they are very keen on Lee Treviiio heads pack ST.

(AP) Mark Spiti, who has collected more Olympic gold than anyone else ever, now is concentrating on hilling the jackpot in busi- ness. In a copyrighted article in the Louisville Courier-Journal, Spitz said "it's been pretty hec- tic11 since he won a record seven gold medals in swimming events at the Munich Olympic games last week. Spitz was interviewed by tele- phone from his Cirmlchael, Ca- lif., home where he Is resting following his Olympic feats. "Right now I'm trying to find a good agent, and then it ought to be said the besieged Spitz who Has been offered various business opportunities- movies, television, records, product endorsements. Several agents have con- tacted him, Spitz said, in- cluding Mark McCormick, who has represented such famous professional athletes as golfers Arnold Palmer and Jack Nick- iaus. EXPECTS TOO MUCH "The only thing Is, Mark McCormick wants 25 per cent instead of 10 or Spitz said. "That sounds high to me, If I make million, he would get million. "On the other hand, he offers you all the in- vests your money for you and things like he said. Spitz's coach, Sherm Cha- vocr, acting as interim agent, said the record-smashing swim- mer has been contacted by bol Universal and Columbia film studios and there has beei some talk of his having a ro in a new James Bond movie. Also, said Chavor, Spilz ha been approached to make T appearance1! on a Bob Hop special, a Bert Bacharacii spc elal and the Dick Cavelt pr gram. About all Spitz has decide for certain is that he will pos pone his entrance into Indian University's dental school at least a year" so he can pu sue some business offers. The dark-haired 22-year-o set world records at the Olym pics in four individual race and participated In three clian pionshJp relay events settin world getting medals. I don't think getting a lot of medals shows a belter way ot life. I like Lo see ultra-nationalism def- lated in (he Olympics." GIVEN KEYS Lord Killanin was talking after a symbolic ceremony in which he received from Brun- ei age the keys of the Chateau tie Vidy, headcmarters of the IOC. Ha added that a move three years ago to use only the Olym- pic flag in victory ceremonies had failed, but it might be tried again. The new president, has had a varied career as author, film producer, businessman and sportsman, said he sees three main problems ahead- eligibility to take port, political influence and tile size of the Games.
