"given me the most enjoyable
self-satisfying profession that.
I could ever imagine for
myself. You don't make a lot
of money. You really don't get
much praise. But deep down
inside I'm very proud of what
I do and feel very good about
it."
The NFL's instant replay
rule, under which calls regar-
ding the position of or posse-
sion of the football may be
changed by an official who
watches the taped replays,
does not hurt Markbreit's
pride. "I like the replay. The
replay has allowed football to
correct errors concerning the
status of the football. It's the
only sport that's really had
the guts to do something as
inovative as replay."
After all NFL officials have
been graded for a season, the
top official at each position is
picked to work the Super
Bowl. Working the Super
Bowl is the official's
equivilent of winning a cham-
pionship. Markbreit has
worked two Super Bowls —
Super Bowl XVII in 1983 bet-
ween Miami and Washington,
and Super Bowl XXI in 1987
between Denver and the New
York Giants.
When a publisher first ap-
proached Markbreit to write
a book, he turned down the of-
fer because his was not a con-
troversial story. He eventual-

ly accepted the offer because
he thought "I had an in-
teresting story to tell . . . It
gave me a chance to let
everybody in the country
know that I'm Jewish . . . It's
never made any difference in
my career, whether I was
Jewish or anything else. But
I use a lot of Jewish expres-
sions and they're all in the
book."
Despite the thankless
nature of his very public job
in the NFL, Markbreit finds
rewards in many aspects of
the profession which fans do
not see. For example, he en-
joys the camaraderie among
his crew. "It's like being with
six of your very best freinds
every weekend," he says.
"The thing I enjoy the most
is walking out on a football
field, a little Jewish guy from
Skokie, and I walk up to
(Miami coach) Don Shula and
he says, 'Hello Jerry, how are
you?' And I say, 'Fine coach,
how are you?' They know me,
I know them. I believe they
respect the work that I do, as
I respect the work that they
do. That's the fun. That's kind
of the icing on the cake for
me. Because I still can't
believe that I'm out there.
"I still think that it's a
dream sometimes. Especialy
in a big ballgame. But it's me.
That's the way it is." ❑

A

first round match at
last week's Little
Caesar's Champion-
ship men's tennis tournament
featured a pair of 21-year-old
Jewish players who are seek-
ing tennis glory from dif-
ferent directions.
Aaron Krickstein has
already been close to the top.
Once the seventh-ranked
player in the world, Kricks-
tein was forced off the tour by
nagging foot injuries. Kricks-
tein's year-long comeback
took him from 61st to 20th in
the world rankings entering
last week's Detroit event.
Krickstein was the third seed
in the tournament, which ran
from Nov. 14-20.
Goldberg, a University of
Michigan senior, has played
in a handful of pro tour-
naments in between college
seasons. Goldberg was one of
three players who won a spot
in the Caesar's event in a pre-
tourney qualifier Nov. 12-13.
Krickstein beat Goldberg
on Nov. 15, 6-1, 6-7 (6-8), 6-3.

Krickstein went on to meet
second-seeded John McEnroe
in Sunday's final. McEnroe
emerged a 7-5, 6-2 victor.
Krickstein, a Grosse Pointe
native, grabbed a 5-0 lead
against Goldberg, from Avon,
Conn. Krickstein played
steady but unspectacular ten-
nis to win the set.
Goldberg had the stronger
serve and made fewer
mistakes in the second set,
forcing a tie-break at 6-6.
Krickstein saved two set
points before hitting a
forehand wide at 6-7 to lose
the set.
At 3-3 in the final set,
Krickstein put his attack in-
to high gear. He won his ser-
vice game with a pair of aces,
broke Goldberg's serve for a
5-3 lead, then served out the
match, winning match point
with a trademark rocket
forehand winner.
After the match, Krickstein
said he was having "a really
good year," even though he
has not won a tournament.
'84 is still my best year
because I won three titles (in-
cluding one in Tel Aviv) and
