last night, breaking up a see-saw
battle for a 126-120 victory over
the West in the first American
Kentucky's Randy Mahaffey
scored all four of his points in the
final splurge to bring the East
from a two-point deficit to a 112-
112 tie with 3:35 left.
Then the regulars-Mel Daniels
and Don Freeman of Minnesota
and Louie Dampier of Kentucky-
took over, outscoring the West 14-
7 to clinch the victory.
Larry Brown, New Orleans' 5-
foot-9 sparkplug, made the West's
last basket with the ABA's
most spectacular innovation-the
the three-point field goal. Brown

Gee whiz, the sports pages are full of stories about champions,
most valuable players, most memorable performances and all that.
Everywhere you look it seems there has to be a story about a winner.
But what about a loolk at how the other half lives?
You know, those poor little blobs who are used as fodder for the
champions to build their records on. As the old saying goes, for every
winner there must be a loser. So it is in the hope of giving publicity
where publicity is due that I salute some of the great losers of 1967
and yesteryear. Without them there would have been no winners.
First stop, of course, is the Washington D.C. metropolitan
area. The District is probably the most potent breeding ground
for losers in the United States. Last year the University of Mary-
land, the Washington Senators and the Washintgon Redskins
made their usual splash on the sports world in a big way.

At Maryland the Terps made a clean sweep of the football slate
by playing a lightened schedule and dropping all nine of their games.
Going back to last season that makes it thirteen losses in a row for the
Terrapins and the end is not in sight.
"We're deemphasizing football," a friend who attends the univer-
sity at College Park explainedto me. I accepted the excuse until it
suddenly occurred to me that Maryland had hired a coach the season
before by the name of Lou Saban. That's right, the same Lou Saban*
who now coaches the Denver Bronco's and who previously guided
the Buffalo Bills to an AFL championship. Saban quit after a year
but he is hardly the type of person a school names as its head coach
unless they are interested in building up the sport.
And how about Dennis McLain of the Detroit Tigers? In the heat
of the pennant race his foot went to sleep on him and put him out
of action for the last six or seven crucial games. While we are on the
subject of baseball let us also not forget Eddie Stanky of the Chicago
White Sox. When the pennant race was at its hottest his team dropped
four in a row to the Kansas City Athletics.
"Chuck Dobson of Kansas City will not stand in our way,"
Stanky said before the big series. So all Dobson didawas shut him
out on two hits and then let Blue Moon Odum and Jim Nash
finish the job.
Obviously it is not always a good thing to brag about your ability
or team before a game. Gary Collins of the Cleveland Browns will
testify to this. Before the championship game with Dallas this year
in which the Cowboys blew the Browns off the field 52-14 Collins let
himself be quoted as saying, "There is no reason I should not have
a good game. Cornell Green (Dallas defensive halfback assigned to
cover Collins) has never given me any trouble."
Well Green caught as many passes as Collins did (one) and never
let Gary stray far from him for the entire game.
Every now and then Sports Illustrated throws its hat into
the losers ring also. Take, for example, the college football issue
this year. Pictures of Teyas, Miami of Florida, Notre Dame and
Georgia were placed on the cover under the caption of "The fight
for number one." Well those four teams lost a total of thirteen
games between them and only Notre Dame finished in the top ten.
But the greatest loser of them all all has to be Abner Haynes of
the one time Dallas Texans. You remember Abner don't you? Four
season or so ago he led the A.FL in rushing and Dallas into the AFL
i championship game. As captain of the team it was on Abner that
the burden of the decision making fell in penalty situations. If you
wil remeber, that championship game ended in a tie after regulation
play and went into a sudden death play off. The first team to score
One can only speculate wha happened when Abner sauntered to
midfield to call the coin flip. He called heads and won and now let
us listen in on the sports bloop of the century.
"Abner," says the referee, "you have won the toss. It is sudden
death ani the first team to score in any way wins. There is no
tomorrow, Abner. All the marbles now ride on every play. The
first team to score wins. Abner, do you kick or do you receive?"
Says Abner without hesitation, "I'll kick."
