? Jack Concannon, on the reaction he expects from the Chicago Bears' front office to his Fu Manchu mustache, long sideburns and collar-length hair: "They want us to play like Joe Namath but we can't look like him."

?Casey Cox, Washington Senators' pitcher, asked why a picture of the Baltimore Orioles' Mark Belanger hangs in the Senators' clubhouse: "He was the only guy we could get out last year."
