Mets, Reds bask on rainy day

The, Texas Wedge
The Feast of Fools ...
. The Jet Setter's Report
Daily Sports Society Editor
The latest stop on the Jet Setters never ending, fun-seeking
tour was New Britain, Connecticut for THE social event of the
spring season; the Sandi Genis-Bill Cusamano Wedding last
Saturday. The affair, considered a must by the In-crowd, fea-
tured a guest list which read like the social register.
J. Guthro Greer of Detroit, the industrialist who deals in
wiring, led an entourage to the East for the festivities. The
Greer caravan partied non-stop across the United States, en-
soute to the wedding, with the portly socialite amusing his
companions with dazzling drum solos on the back seat of the
Greer was so enthused about the possibiities of the
affair that he intimated to this reporter, "I would've came
even if I were not invited." Guthro, gaily bedecked in a
black shirt and baby blue sports coat, was easily the hit
of the post nuptial reception as he held court at his own
private table.
Greer simply enraptured those present, including, the groom
and his two ushers, Eric Siegel and Mort Noveck, with his
hilarious imitation of a young drunk at a wedding reception.
His loud, vulgar language, interspersed with frequent trips to
the bar at the Moose Lodge, were so convincing that unless
one knew of Greer's tolerance for alcohol, he would suspect
that he was drunk out of his mind.
And by the way, which former Daily sports editor was seen
receiving erotic caresses under the table from a former Daily
business staff department manager? Don't look now dearies, but
we may all be gathering again very soon to celebrate another
wedding . ..
The always natty Mr. Mort of Ann Arbor set the pace in
Men's attire once again until-OOPS-an embarrassing stain
marred his custom cut grey bell bottom trousers. Musn't get
so excited, Morty-Poo!
The bride, of course, was simply ravishing as always,
but showing a little less thigh than usual, much to the
chagrin of eager beaver Legow. However, Elliot may have
had his feelings soothed by the attention of another
Sandy ...
The gazes at the blushing bride were rivalled only by those
directed at the new hubby. Cusamano was tonsorially perfect
with a fluffy bouffant, but wanting a bit for two articles
which had become something of a trademark to his acquaint-
ances in Ann Arbor saloons; his scuzzy, Woolworth-made Mich-
igan Athletic Department blazer and the stylish safety pin
which he wore so rakishly in the hinges of his eyeglasses.
And isn't everybody wondering if the popular man about
twon will be as generous with stories of his sexploits now
that he and Sandi are of one name????
Eric (the Red) Siegel, former Daily Libels player-coach,
was looking quite prosperous in a grey doubleknit suit, which
speaks quite well for the generousity of the government's
weekly unemployment stipend. But alas, por Eric seemed quite
the carriage sans horse as his Pat was noticeably absent from
the wedding and reception. Could it be that one of the Coosome
twosome has flown the coop???
Noticeably present also was Ann Arbor's favorite, Mr.
constricTOR of rock and roll group Jimmy and the Javelins,
who has been trying to give co-star Chastity a good belt
for at least tow years. TOR drew admiring glances from
fashion watchers with his sports coat ensemble topped off
with white socks and a pair of size monogrammed converse
(high-topped, naturuellement).
TOR, employed his famous long reach, which has brought
some many extra helpings of food to him across dormitory
tabels to snare the traditional garter thrown by the groom.
Catching the gater marks TOR as the next male in the group
to wed, which bodes ill for any in the wedding party planning
to marry within the next decade.
TOR also gave his personal seal of approval to the meat-
balls,. kielbase, ham, roast beef, potato salad, chicken, macaroni
and, of course, the ever present bottles of Schiltz.
Another old 'timer in attendance was former exiled
Daily sportswriter Jared E. Clark III. Jerry was his
liberal with gossip about the families of both the bride and
the groom as he normally is with librium tablets. This habit
of whispering the juicy tidbits out of the corner of his
mouth made the filthy rumors a little hard to digest, but
he was entertaining nonetheless.
As the guests prepared to leave the Moose Lodge, they all
joined hands in the traditional Moose handshake and sung in
unison the tribute to Moose International, 'God Bless Moose-
Bob Andrews who was invited to the wedding by mistake

offered the closing words, a prayer for happiness who the
newlyweds and a fervent hope that Cusamano can finally kick
the curse of alcoholism. The sentiments were echoed by all.
Note: the Jet-setters next stop will be Illinois Congressman
Abner Mikva's one-hundred dollar a plate dinner, June 8th in
Chicago. Don't miss it! Ta to for now.

not known. Tune in tomorrow for the Magic Number.

NEW YORK--Unbeaten Jon
Matlack fired a three-hitter for
his sixth victory and Rusty
Staub drove in four runs, lead-
ing the New York Mets to a 7-0
victory over the Philadelphia

Matlack, a 22-year-old left-
hander whose last victory was
a five-hitter against the Phils,
went the route for the second
time this year, striking out six
and walking five.
He allowed only Larry Bowa's
clean single to left field in the
fourth inning, Terry Harmon's
infield hit in the eighth and

Mike Anderson's single up the

taking advantage of Pittsburgh's

their National League East lead
over the Pirates to four games.
Staub, who had- two singles
and two doubles, gave Matlack
all the runs he needed in the
first inning. After a walk and
Tommie Agee's single, Staub
cracked a two-run double to
right off Steve Carlton, 5-6, who
lost his fifth straight game.
In the third, Willie Mays and
Bud Harrelson walked, Staub
singled for one run and Cleon
Jones hit a sacrifice fly to make
it 4-0.

in the fifth as Harrelson led off
with a triple and, one out later,
Staub, Jones and Jim Fregosi
singled for two more runs. They
closed the scoring in the eighth
as Jerry Grote walked and Mays
and Harrelson singled.
