Next Week

Pro football 1976 arrives, replete with Wanda, Meg, Do Dad and 43 Purple Sloop. Dan Jenkins, NFL glossary in hand, reviews recent events, previews the upcoming season and makes some funnies. Robert F. Jones gets Bud Grant to crack his Great Stone Face during a lakeside visit with the Viking coach and, in a definitive article on the 3,500 miles of tape used annually by the pros, wraps up that subject once and for all. Plus all the inside dope on the 28 NFL teams.
