DO YOU BELIEVE IN MIRACLES?.. ..NO
anadians disturb American dreams 2

SARAJEVO, Yugoslavia (AP) - Canada, stung by the dis-
qualification of two of its players, struck back on ice yester-
day and defeated the United States 4-2 in the first-round
hockey competition on the opening day of the XIV Winter
Olympics.
The Canadians had significant psychological advantages
and used them quickly, scoring just 27 seconds into the game.
THEY WERE playing the defending gold medalists.
They were playing their neighbors and friends, but close
competitors, who had edged them 5-4-3 in a 12-game
exhibition series.
And they were playing the country that started the dispute
which caused two Canadians to be disqualified for the Olym-
pics because they had played in the National Hockey League.
"I THINK they were fired up and I can understand
that," sais U.S. coach Lou Vairo. "They played with really
great intensity today and were very good."
"I think that first goal was a very strong psychological
factor. It seemed we were skating uphill all day."
The loss was a serious setback for the United States, which
faces a stiffer test Thursday in second-seeded
Czechoslovakia, which crushed Norway 10-4 Tuesday behind
Vincent Lukac's three goals. Chances for another dream-
come-true finish by the Americans, a repeat of Lake Placid,
appear dim.
But, despite the first defeat in Olympic competition for an
American team since 4976, Vairo wasn't ready to give up.
"You've got to finish in first or second in the division to
qualify for a medal and those positions have not been deter-
mined yet," he said. "I think we have a chance against the
Czechs. I think they're very good but I think they're
beatable."

USSR smashes Poland
SARAJEVO, Yugoslavia (AP) - Sergey Shepelev
Vladimir Kovin, and Nikolai Drozdetsky each scored twice
as the Soviet Union, the favorites for the gold medal, routed
Poland 12-1 last night in the opening round of Olympic hockey
competition.
Victor Tumenev added a goal and three assists for the
Soviets.
The Soviets led 3-1 after one period, then scored four-times
in the second period and five times in the final 20 minutes.
The' only Polish goal was scored by Krystian Sizerski
on a breakaway in the first period.
Sweden swamps Italy.
SARAJEVO, Yugoslavia (AP) - Left wing Peter Gradin
scored two goals and added three assists as Sweden over-
came a shaky start to whip Italy 11-3 in an Olympic hockey
opener Tuesday.
Gradin, whose brother Thomas plays for the Vancouver
CanucKs of the National Hockey League, powered the Swedes
with linemates Jens Ohling and Per-Erik Eklund.
Italy, which had two of its players disqualified from the r
tournament Monday because they had signed contracts with
NHL clubs, never led against the Swedes.
The Italians kept coming back during the first two periods.
Then, in the third period, Sweden took complete command,
scoring six consecutive goals.
Sweden, which finished third in the 1980 Olympic tour-
nament at Lake Placid, N.Y., behind the United States and
the Soviet Union, is expected to battle again for the medals
here.

I M STARTING to feel like E.T.
You know, the little guy in the movie that wants
to go home.
Actually, I'm not going home: I'm being thrown
out of the Daily. After three-and-a-half years of
dutiful service to athletes and readers alike, I am
being replaced. There are new sports editors who
want my desk, so I'm being put out to pasture.
But I'm taking as many people as I can with me.
I'm going to print every quote I never thought I'd
see in print. Everything. Every time some-
one said something they didn't think I had
the guts to print, I wrote it down and now a
I've scoured my notebooks to find the best
and most embarrassing.
Best set-up quote ever; Michigan
hockey coach John Giordano. After
Michigan lost to Michigan State last
season, r asked Giordano "What did you
think of your team's execution tonight?"
"I considered it," he said.
Best description of, and immediate reac-
tion to, an injury: former Michigan wide
receiver Kenney ixear, wno suffered liver.
lacerations after crashing into the wall at didn'
Michigan Stadium.
"It was jump - BOOM!- hit the wall. No more
liver," Gear said. "My immediate reaction was to
throw up the three hot dogs I had eaten for lunch."
Best reaction to being cut from the team:
Michigan hockey center Ray Dries, who was cut
twice before sticking with the team.
"The second time it happened,. I just couldn't
believe it," Dries said. "I said 'Wow, I got cut. I
don't believe it.' "
Best description of a victory: former Michigan

tennis player Tom Haney.
"I broke his back," Haney said after winning a
match. "After the first set, he just bent over and
grabbed his ankles and I jumped on him, rode him
and broke his back."
Best in-your-face quote: Michigan lacrosse
layer Ed Anderson. In a 1981 ame a ainst Lake
Forest College, Anderson was knocked down and
taunted by a Lake Forest player early in the first
quarter. Anderson ran down the Lake Forest mid-
fielder, stole the ball, brought it down the field
ran through the Forester defense and
scored.,
"Hey number 10," Anderson then yelled
at the player "you left your jock back
there."
Wifelywisdom
Most honest assessment of a future
husand: MarshacGiordano, wife of
fMichigan hockey coach John.
"I wouldn't have gone out with him if I
had known he was a hockey player."
'mth Best assessment of when the game was
Slike Pollackwon: quarterback Steve Smith, after he and
teammate Vince DeFelice beat wrestlers
Rob Rechsteiner and Walt Dunayczan in a pizza-
eating competition.
"I knew we had it won when I didn't throw up for
a second time," Smith said.
Best reaction to a television camera: the late
Father Nick Hubble, Catholic priest at St. Mary's
Student Chapel.
"I get pretty into the games, and I really have to
watch it sometimes," Hubble said. "I mean, there
I was on the sideline of the Michigan-Notre Dame
game wearing my Roman collar, and I was a per-

fect target for the cameras. But I forgot that I Was
a target. So Michigan fumbles the ball and the
television cameras point at me for reaction, and I
forgot where I was, turned right into'the camera
and said 'Oh shit.
Best reason for not celebrating the Jewish
holidays: Michigan linebacker Mike Boren, wh
travelled to play the University of Washington over-
the Jewish holiday Yom Kippur.
."Come on," Boren said. "If I go up to Bo on
Friday night in Seattle and say 'Excuse me coach,
I have to go out to pray,' what do you think he's
going to say tp me?"
Most honest appraisal of next week's game:
wide receiver Vince Bean, after Michigan
beat Iowa the week before the Illinois game.
"I'm not even thinking about Illinois," Bean
said. "I'm just thinking about where I'm going to
party tonight."
Best putdown of a Daily co-worker: Michigan
quarterback Steve Smith.
"Before we start this interview, I just want to
know: you aren't going to do a Ron Pollack job on
me, are you?"
Best reaction to one of my columns: The two
guys in South Quad who put my "Wave" column
on their doors.
Worst reaction to one of my columns: my
mother, who told me the story about my father
was one of the worst I had written in years. She
was probably jealous.
There are a lot more, but I don't have time for
them now. The new editors are too busy trying to
get the keys to my desk.
I guess that means it's really time to go.
Thanks.

SPOR TS OF THE DAILY:

Hurt hoopsters ready for MSU

By PHIL NUSSEL
Both Wendy Bradetichand Orethia
Lilly will be healthy for this Sunday's
women's basketball game at Michigan
State, according to an athletic depar-
tment spokesperson. The two suffered
ankle injuries in last Sunday's 76-63 loss
to the Spartans at Crisler Arena.
Lilly, a sophomore guard averaging
8.8 points per game, scored the team's
first points of the game but was helped
off the court a few minutes later with
what was presumed to be a sprained
ankle. She played for a few minutes
later in the half, but did not see action in
the second half.
BRADETICH, the team's leading
scorer averaging almost 19 points a
game, was hurt in the closing minutes
and iced the ankle after the game. The
injury apparently was not serious.
