KANSAS CITY - Last-place
Kansas City ruined Chicago's
chances for moving into the Amer-

sent the Sox skidding into fourth
place by sweeping a twi-night
doubleheader 5-2 and 4-0.
Chicago, which entered the dou-
bleheader one-half game behind
first-place Minnesota, is now 1 2
games out. Boston and Detroit
are tied for second, one game

LA VIE :
If You Don't Like It,
Sports writing: The exaltation of the trivia for the delight
of the masses. - L. Graff
No dungeon is truly execrable. -Cynic
My phone rings at four in the morning and some demented quad-
die laughs and hangs up.
I get a letter that says "if you don't want to write sports please
at least save your crappy surrealism for your psychoanalyst."
My friends tell me I'm crazy and the coaches down at the
athletic building walk by me and shake their heads in mocking disgust.
Even my contemporaries here at 420 Maynard Street are
beginning to resent the space that my twice weekly "sports"
column is taking up on the pages. Said one "we might as well run
Bertrand Russell, Lar Daley and a few others and forget sports
Well fans, I offer my humbly apologetic explanation. Basically
i the aetiology of my unsportsmanlike conduct can be summed up
in one sentence. I don't write sports because I don't know anything
I used to. I really did. I can name the first, last and middle names
of every player on the Chicago White Sox from 1955-60. When I was
in high school, I knew every player on every basketball team in the
league my school was in. Once I even got Mrs. Gerry Staley's autograph
and that's the absolute truth.
Now, today, 1967, September, October ... I just can't hack it.
There's too much. I'm majoring in psychology carrying 16 hours,
trying to find a grad school of clinical psych. that'll take me,
dating a girl, socializing with my friends, reading the New York
Times and Harpers . . . and I'm supposed to become an expert
enough to write 20 inches a week on Michigan's defensive forma-
tions or Milt Plum's jock strap?
In point of fact there are so many professional sports leagues
nowadays that I don't even know the names of half of them, let alone
Individual players. College football?-Oh, just five or six hundred
teams with 22 players essentially starting for each of them. To be
an expert simply takes more time than I have.
Sorry folks you'll just have to read Bob Klivais or Joe Falls if you
want to find out what's going on in our nation's ball yards and locker
I'd like to exalt some trivia for you, but I feel almost obligated
not to. I'll only have this column one year and since I'm not going
into jouralism this may be my first, last, and only chance to express
myself for a newspaper audience. So I want to talk about some things
that don't necessarily deal with sports.
Eventualy I'll get around to some sports pieces, I'm sure.
I'd like to do a column on former Michigan basketball star Oliver
Darden, now playing pro basketball in the new league. I am pretty
much of an authority, I humbly admit, on many facets of Big
Ten basketball and Wolverine teams of the past three years and
I'll be having something to say about that. So if you're really a
sports buff, look over the first sentence or two of the various tomes
that appear under my name and once in a while they'll be some-
thing there that'll interest you.
But most of the time I'm going to be deep baby. deep. And
you'll have to think through me not float. I write about meaningful
important stuff and that's all there is to it. Deep stuff.
Like Linda Bird Johnson.

In the opener, the White Sox
had the same kind of trouble get-
ting on base, managing just three
runners until the ninth when they
scored two runs.
Chuck Dobson, 10-10, held them
to two hits until the final inning
when he made way for reliever
Lew Krausse after Tommie Agee
tripled and McCraw walked.
Krausse gave up two walks, forc-
ing in a run, and Rocky Colavito
singled, scoring another.
The defeat meant that the
White Sox, who have three games
left, must win them allto gain a
tie. Chicago cannot win the pen-
nant without a playoff.
