Q ue nosera ... no sera
By CLARK NORTON
Try to picture Bo Didley in "Madame Butterfly." Or Lenny
Bruce in "Mary Poppins." Or perhaps Calvin Coolidge as emcee of
"The Tonight Show." It's like asking Jasha Heifetz to, play the
"Que sera, sera," although every bit as profound as "A rose is a
rose is a rose," seems to miss the boat somewhere. Even with anin-
ebriated casting director I still couldn't imagine Lenny Bruce singing
"Chim, chim, chiree," or Silent Cal playing Karnak.
Some things just aren't meant to be. And while it's tough
to admit sports just aren't meant to be taken seriously.'
Now if a cook doesn't like to eat, that's his business. And if a
model is a nudist in private life, nobody really cares. But it would
seem that a sports editor should at least care a little about who wins
and loses. Other than for purely pragmatic reasons, of course, such
as when he is betting on Clay in three rounds.
But it's true. Not that I'm disloyal, a party-pooper, or apathetic.
I didn't fall out of my crib onto a pair of 'football spikes as a baby
and the coach's son never stole my girl. And just because I never
learned to blow bubble., gum doesn't mean I have repressed hatreds
Actually I love sports. What better way is there to kill an
evening. There's nothing more fascinating than trying to figure
out who the AAU will suspend next, when Jim Nash will start
shaving so he can do, some commercials, and how much money
Oscar Robertson is making. It's enough to fire the imagination.
Sports were intended as a diversion. As a diversion, they fit the
bill perfectly. After all, what can be more humorous than a general
manager who, straight-faced and brimming with self-importance,
proclaims "We'll only trade to help the team." And a good old-
fashioned "No comment" is always a stitch. I can't wait to hear
Ralph Houk claim the pennant's in the bag. Whoever writes his
material must have a hyperactive mimeograph machine and a lot
And what can be better than a night at. the ball park. That will
be two mustards, please. Or shivering at a football game. A perfect
excuse for bringing a blanket.
And there's no better therapy than taking out your hostilities
on your neighborhood umpire. Be the first on your block to connect
with a coke bottle.
Just healthy, clean fun. As long as you don't get carried away
People just have to realize there are other things more im-
portant. Even in the midst of a war everybody still turns to the
sports pages first. The least they could do would be to start off with
"Dear Abby." And why does anyone bother to memorize batting
averages when they could stick to Dow Jones? What's materialism
coming to anyway.
I don't really feel guilty being a sportswriter. And not because
I subscribe to the theory that "Somebody has to do it so it might
as well be me." Actually nobody has to do it at all. The world could
survive without sports. After all, it may not survive with them.
I guess it's because sports are a lot like life itself. Crazy.
Unpredictable. And emerging out of all the insanity is something
wonderful. It doesn't matter so much who wins and who loses.
The great thing about sports is that you can cast aside its serious
aspects, something it doesn't seem you can often do in life.
But if you can laugh when an easy bouncer skips through the
legs of your favorite second baseman, you begin to think anything
might just be possible.

You could also point out the
tremendous play of the defense
which held State scoreless for two
minutes in the first period when
the Wolverines were two men
short. You could also point out the
aggressive Michigan offense which
fired 45 shots on goal. You could
also talk about the great saves
