There were potbellies and old
bodies, graying hair and white hair,
slow motion and super slow motion
at Yost Ice Arena Sunday. An old-
timers game between the Detroit Red
Wings Old-timers team and the
University of Michigan Alumni
hockey team took place.
What is it about old-timers
games?
Many complain that old-timers
games do not serve a purpose. The
statistics mean nothing. They want
memories of their heroes
untarnished, where a slapshot was a
SLAPSHOT, and a strikeout was a
STRIKEOUT. They don't want to
see what age has done to a once
powerful body, dissolving it of its
potency on the ice or on the
diamond.
Last Sunday, almost 3,000 came
out though, to see what time had
done to their old heroes.
Half of both teams looked like
Harold Snepsts,tamcurrent NHL
player and former Red Wing whose
balding headand tough play won
him respect from the fans.
The crowd thoroughly loved the
game. They cheered. The loudest
cheers were reserved for current

Michigan coach Red Berenson, who
used to electrify the old Coliseum in
his All-American years of 1961-62
and in later years with the Red
Wings, as well as other NHL teams.
To put it simply, people love
old-timers games. They love that
special link with the past. Who cares
if the players are slower, grayer, and
lack the skill to go to the net that
once made them great? ,
It goes much farther than the fans
at Yost. There are old-timers games
at each major league baseball park
during the summer. Now, there is
the ultimate in old-timers games -
an old-timers baseball league.
The playing quality that was once
there, is there no longer. But the
person is. This person who was once
admired for many years in the
hometown uniform. At a college
age, it's a little tough to identify
with old-timers games. A name like
Alex Delvecchio doesn't mean much
to a 20-year old.
But I do remember watching the
World Series of 1978. I remember
watching New York Yankee third
baseman Graig Nettles making dive

after dive, stifling Dodger rally after
Dodger rally. I would try to do the
same in my own backyard off my
pitchback. I envied his job.
On Opening Day of the Old-
timers league, Nettles made a dive
- just like the old days, and the
memories started flowing.
Seeing Al Kaline swing, Mark
Fidrych throw, Mickey Mantle or
Charlie Gehringer jog to the first or
third base line in player
introductions - puts the statistics
and stories from a bygone era back
into the forefront of one's mind.
Like drinking lemonade with
grandpa on the front porch, old-
timers games are a special link to
the past.
Yet for Tim Keough, it was
passed a little different way.
In net for the Michigan
Wolverines' alumni stood Jim
Keough, an All-American in 1969.
Today, like his father did before him,
reserve goalie Tim handles the nets
for the current Michigan hockey.

Men's

soccer accepts bid

to NCCSA tournament

by Aaron Hinklin
Daily Sports Writer
The Michigan men's soccer team
endured the four hour trip to
Valparaiso, Indiana Sunday to bring
back a 3-2 victory. The game marked
the end of Michigan's regular
season, posting a 9-7-4 record.
The Wolverines have had a
problem with consistency for most
of the year, but peaked at the right
time, winning their last four games.
Michigan controlled the game,
scoring twice in the first 30
minutes. Team captain Eric Moore
scored the first goal while junior
forward Todd Neff put in the second.
Team secretary Dave DiGiuseppe
praised the forwards. "The forwards
played better than I've ever seen
them play before. They were playing
like clockwork."
Valparaiso scored with about 5
minutes left in the first half to bring
the score to 2-1. However, Michigan
sophomore defender Jon Sundermann
kept the Wolverines in control when
he blasted a second-half shot from
thirty yards out to increase
Michigan's lead to 3-1.
Valparaiso scored soon after
Sundermann's goal to close the
Wolverine lead to 3-2, but never
threatened to tie the score.

After defeating both Purdue and
Iowa in a previous weekend,
Michigan was invited to the
National Collegiate Club Sports
Association Tournament in Kansas
City. The competition determines
the best club soccer team in the
nation with eight schools from
around the country participating.
The top two club teams in the
Big Ten will play in the NCCSA
tournament. Minnesota and Illinois,
tied for second, will have a playoff
to determine which team will be
represented in the tournament.
Last year, Illinois won the
national tournament. The Michigan
club feels they can bring home ano-
ther national championship in club
soccer to the Big Ten. "We are very
optimistic that we can repeat the feat
(championship win) this year," said
assistant coach Mike Malley.
The team will leave for Kansas
City on Thursday. The self-
supported soccer team had to raise
the money for the trip themselves,
but Malley said that club sports and
other donors, which include former
players and players families, have
been very helpful.
"We promise to get all the team
home Monday for classes," said
Malley, "even if we win."

Sunday passed the puck to a new
generation of hockey fans - allow-
ing them to experience the greatness
of old timers past.

Women's soccer stuns varsity foes

by Dan Zoch
Daily Sports Writer
The Michigan women's soccer team finished its
season on a high note this weekend, placing second at
the Big Ten tournament held at Indiana University.
Posting a two-day record of 2-1-1 against varsity teams
to end the season with a 16-8-1 record, the women's
squad tried to prove themselves worthy of the varsity
status they've been seeking all year.
In what goalkeeper Crissy Rice called a "freezing
Saturday morning with "incredible winds," the
Wolverines and Hoosiers ended in a scoreless tie. Later
in the day, Michigan scored their only two goals of the
weekend which proved ample enough to beat both
Illinois and Purdue, 1-0, and send them into the final
match against Minnesota.
Sophomore forward Lori Green scored the goal
against Illinois and first-year player Leslie Martin
provided the difference against Purdue. "We really knew
how to pull together," Martin said. "The key to our
success has been a combination of discipline and heart."
It was the cold weather and poor field conditions,
more than Minnesota, which beat Michigan on Sunday.
"That small bumpy field and the cold weather took away
from our passing game and our ball control," said senior
team captain Amy Stock.

However, sophomore Sandy Najarian had a different
opinion. "The championship game should have been
ours. We had the intensity, but as a team we just
couldn't put the ball in the net."
The Wolverines, however, seemed satisfied with
their finish in the weekend's tournament despite not
being a varsity team. Most of the season, the team has
had to operate without a coach, adequate practice
facilities, or even a set of away uniforms.
Their struggle to gain varsity status has been
without success so far. "We expect something. At 16-8-
1, we have one of the best records for Michigan
women's teams," said Crista Towne.
"The thing is, (athletic director) Bo Schembechler
says it's (the funding) all or nothing. So, since the
school won't give us anything, we have to generate4
help from outside and hope we get something from the
university. We're even trying to get some backing from
the MSA," she continued.
This weekend's strong showing at Indiana keeps
the team optimistic about getting official team status
soon. "If we keep improving like we have this season,"
Towne adds, "it might make them notice us. But really,
it just doesn't seem to help."

Kimo Ford
Embry-Riddle
University

The Fords
have always
driven
Volkswagens.
Ask Kimo Ford why he bought a Volkswagen and
get ready for some family history.
"Everyone in my family has driven a Volkswagen
at one time or another. My dad had a Microbus in
the Sixties. My mom and sister both drove Beetles.
And my brother, who's also a student, drives an
'83 Volkswagen Rabbit.
"So when I saved enough money to buy a car
there was only one logical choice. A Volkswagen.
My car's a '79 Rabbit. With 145,000 miles on it.
Ten years old and all those miles and it's still
running great.
"If you ask me, it's the perfect student's car.
Good on gas. Fun to drive. And big enough to
carry four friends." Even so, Kimo is already think-
ing about his next car. Another Volkswagen?
"Absolutely. A GTI. White. Gotta have white."
