San Diego 14, Buffalo 9
Dan Fouts hit tight end Eric Sievers
for San Diego's decisive score in the
second quarter, and the Buffalo Bills
were unable to put the ball in the end'
zone as the Chargers opened the
National Football League season with
a 14-9 victory over Buffalo.
The scene: a steamy Pittsburgh
court room. The neatly dressed
prosecutor pulls a handkerchief from
his breast pocket and slowly mops his
brow. He takes a deep breath, puts
both hands on the table in front of him,
and pulls himself to his feet.
"Mr. Hernandez," said the prosecutor,
"did you play Griddes with Lonnie
"Yes," comes the meek response.
"Mr. Hernandez, did you play Grid
des with Joaquin Andujar?
"And did you play Griddes with
those two men during the 1982 World
"Yes, yes I did!" says the ball
player, bursting into tears and
covering his face.
"I rest my case, your honor."
It is true that not everyone who has
played Griddes in the past has been
clean cut and All-American. But
Griddes is entering a new season, and
hopefully the respectability of the
combatants will rise.
