Borg happy with life, enjoys occasional play
'Big play' Cowboys look for consistency
PAULAS (AP>- Asked to characterize his team. Dallas Coach Tom landry uses two words: Big Play.
•‘We’ve been a big play team all year,” I^indry said of his 8-1 Cowboys. What we need to do is eliminate our errors so we don't have to be.” l^ndry added "We are winning — that’s the main point We make the plays that enable us to win.” Unfortunately for the Cowboys, they have been giving up too many big plays defensively, which is why l.andr> says the Washintgon Redskins are better
"Washington is best right now,” l.andry said Tuesday at his weekly press luncheon "They are the Super Bowl champions and playing like they did when they won it — no mistakes
"Washington is playing solid football.”
I an dry watched the Redskins' 27-24 victory over San Diego Monday night, which pulled Washington within a game of the Cowboys in the National Conference Eastern Division.
Asked if he felt the division title would be on the line when the two teams meet Dec. ll at Texas Stadium, Landry said “I hope it comes down to that ”
The Cowboys defeated the Cunts 36-20 Sunday but were victimized by several defensive breakdowns.
Dallas travels to Philadelphu Sunday to play a team it defeated 37-7 three weeks ago.
“Philadelphia has played very well the last two weeks,” Landry said. “Their defense has been
playing very well. They had a down game against us but that happens every once in awhile.
’"They’ll want to prove they are not as bad as they looked last time. Everything we did seemed to work.”
He termed the Eagle game as “very important."
“We need to win against division teams.” I .an dry said. “This will be as important a game as we play.
“If it comes down to head-and-head (with Washington) then the tie-breakers are awful important.”
Landry said there would be no lineup changes although Larry Bethea has been splitting time with right defensive end Harvey Martin "Martin will start.” lundry said
HOUSTON (AP) — The favorite headline was "Bjom Again'* when he was winning five consecutive Wimbledon titles and dominating the men s pro tennis tour.
It became “Bjom Bored” later when the competitive fires dwindled and he announced his retirement from competitive tennis.
Many of Bjorn Borg’s fans could see no rhyme to his retirement seven months ago but the answer, in free verse, is simple. He is now “Bjom Happy.”
Looking relaxed and fit. Borg once again reaffirmed his decision Tuesday that he is quite happy to occasionally dabble in competitive tennis such as he is doing tonight in the $400,000 World Mixed Doubles Championships at Astroarena.
“I’ve never gotten the itch to come back,” Borg said. “To tell you the truth, it’s not tough at all not getting up and practicing four hours every day. Now I play tennis about five hours per week and do a little running.
I’m very satisfied with what I am doing in tennis now.
“I tned my best while I was playing and now I don’t regret anything about retiring.”
The Mixed Doubles Championships mark Borg's first competition other than exhibitions since he stepped down last April, but does not mark a weakening in his resolve to stay off the men's tour.
Borg said he is not bothered by the fact he is no longer the No. I men’s player in the world and it doesn't bother him to be watching from the sidelines.
“I went to Wimbledon and Paris (French Open) and I was happy to be off the course,” Borg said.
Borg. 27, says he wants to stay involved with tennis and play tournaments for fun.
“Still, I’m only 27 and I have my life rn front of me,” he said. “I keep myself very busy. It is important when you wake up in the morning to know what you are going to do. ”
NBA. referees still battling
NEW YORK (AP) - The referees’ union said the National Basketball Association’s latest offer proved the league does “not care to negotiate.” The NBA called the union’s counterproposal “outrageous.”
With that, the latest attempt to end an NBA lockout of referees failed on Tuesday with no word on when further negotiations might Uke place.
NBA negotiators, joined for the first turn by Commissioner Larry O’Brien and representaUves of the referees’ union, met for four hours at a New York hotel Tuesday afternoon.
The league’s referees have been locked old since the sUrt of the exhibition season while non-union officials have worked games Tuesday’s meeting was the first since last Thursday, the day before the regular season began.
Breakers get cash. Superdome
NEW ORLEANS (AP) - The United States Football League’s Breakers, whose move here from Boston took less than a week, announced Tuesday they now have big local bucks and the world’s biggest indoor sUdium in which to play.
“I’ve been a Saints fan since Day One, and I’m looking forward to the day the Saints and Breakers can play ut the World Bowl,” said Joseph C. Canizaro, a millionaire real estate developer who (Berio—ii he owns 31 percent of New Orleans’ USFL franchise.
Majority owner George Matthews moved the Breakers here from Boston last mn—ii. The move was approved by league
owners within a week after it was disclosed New Orleans apparently had the inside track on a half-dozen other cities
One reason Matthews gave for the move was the team’s inability to find an arena larger than Boston University’s 21,000-seat Nickerson Field.
That problem also was resolved Tuesday with an announcement by Randy Vataha, the Breakers’ president, that the team has reached a “tentative, long-term agreement” to play its home games in the 72,000-seat Louisiana Superdome
Kittle. Strawberry named top rookies
ST. LOUIS (AP) — The Sporting News selected Ron Kittle of the Chicago White Sox and Darryl Strawberry of the New York Meta as the American and Nauonal League 1963 Rookies of the Year and named Mike Boddicker of the Baltimore Orioles and Craig McMurtry of the Atlanta Braves as Rookie Pitchers of the Year.
Rangers arrange homestand for GOP
DALLAS (AP) — Texas Rangers majority owner Eddie Chiles, a staunch Republican supporter, has gotten his way with the 1964 American League Daseball schedule and will have a homestand for his team during the Republican National Convention here.
Chiles requested the homestand for Aug. 29-23, the dates of the convention, and a tentative schedule released by the league last month has Texas hosting divisional champion Chicago Aug. 20-23.
“He asked for it and it was a reasonable request and we tried to do it,” said Bob
Fischel, assistant to the American League commissioner,
“It’s sort of an unusual request, but that’s what we’re here for.”
The Rangers’ homestand is part of an orchestrated effort to offer a wide array of cultural events and entertainment to convention delegates and visitors. Special performances by Dallas’ symphony, opera and ballet are planned for the convention week.
Angels. Carew may part ways
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Seven-time American League batting champion Rod Carew might have played his last game for the California Angels.
Carew’s attorney said Tuesday that it seems unlikely that the Angels will make a serious attempt to sign his client before next Monday’s re-entry draft.
That could mean that Carew might be playing elsewhere next season, since it has been the policy of the Angels not to retain negotiating rights to any (rf their players who go through the draft.
However, Angels executive vice president Buzzle Bavasi indicated that the Angels might go against that policy.
“It’s so late and so complex,” Bavasi said, referring to the negotiations with Carew. "I’m not sure we won’t put in a claim for Rodney .”
AU negotiations with players who have filed for free agency, as Carew has, must stop at midnight Thursday and may not resume until after the re-entry draft.
Carew was one of five Angels eligible for free agency. The club has signed the other four — catcher Bob Boone, third baseman Doug DeCinces and outfielders Brian Downing and Ellis Valentine.
