Hockey: W ho cares, right Well, foi the three or foul of you who do. ifs definitely fun time hor lh*’ rest of you. now that the too-long regulai season and the joke early playoff rounds are over, there s some go**d action going on Hie teams that didn't deserve to make th** playoffs in the first place have all been eliminated, and the four that are left are playing well, well enough for a non-ho* key fan to tune in on the table and may Im* even like it As fat as predu tunis go. I like Wayne Gret.sk v and the Trillion toil Oilers to win it all. partially l*e* a use the Boston Bruins and New York Islanders will have us<hI up all their energy beating eat h other up iii an ext ding, seven game semifinal

Pre football: I said this was gt iii) t take ( are of the rest of 83, (fain t j" The Oilers did very. very well in the draft and may be a 500 team this season Ixmk for Karl Campbell to again be a running back who strikes fear in opposing defenses while th** coaches l*x»k for someone win* can play well enough to earn the quarterback job on a permanent basis The Cowboys..., well, I .a miry promised to get tough with the team following their NFC final loss to San

I .aiidl y promises pre-season t amp will la* troll* tough I sup|K»se lf thev lose again, lamdry will say, I mean it this time, guys Camp will la* iron* iron* extra tough I'm becoming disillusioned
Certainly, the Cowlxiys are vetv good, and one season, probably very soon. they will win the .Su|a*r Bow! again But th** Cowboys are just another team in that top echelon that includes San Diego and Miami and some oilier teams that rotate in and out, It'-, not that tit** Cowboys are the single ta*st team <despite what the (( ally rabid Cowboy fans think *. but that thev I e ottmny Un* l»est yea! after year
