THEY SAID IT IN 1987

JANUARY
Shirley Muldowney, drag racer: "I want to be the fastest woman in the world—in a manner of speaking."

FEBRUARY
Rick Sund, vice-president of basketball operations for the Dallas Mavericks, after watching a man juggle chain saws during halftime: "You have a turnover there, and you've got trouble."

MARCH
Sylvester Stallone, movie star, on the broad appeal of the sport of arm wrestling: "You've got guys from MIT and guys who can't spell MIT."

APRIL
Terri McCormick, the mother of Philadelphia 76ers center Tim McCormick, upon receiving the news that her son was bringing 6'6", 263-pound teammate Charles Barkley home for dinner in two weeks: "I'd better start cooking now."

MAY
Rich Donnelly, bullpen coach for the Pittsburgh Pirates, on the preponderance of diminutive players on his team: "We have a shoe contract with Buster Brown."

JUNE
Ken Singleton, Expos broadcaster, on the new, long-awaited roof over Olympic Stadium in Montreal: "This is nice. What would it take to dome the whole province?"

JULY
Jay Hilgenberg, center for the Chicago Bears, on the five different quarterbacks his team was bringing to training camp: "All those quarterbacks feel the same to me."

AUGUST
Dick Butkus, Hall of Fame middle linebacker, trying to shrug off his reputation for playing dirty: "I never set out to hurt anybody deliberately unless it was, you know, important. Like a league game or something."

SEPTEMBER
Joe Magrane, St. Louis Cardinals pitcher, on Morehead, Ky., his hometown: "Not much goes in or out of there, except Charles Kuralt a couple of times a year."

OCTOBER
Kevin Johnson, former Cal guard and the top draft pick of the Cleveland Cavaliers, revealing who his idol is: "My hero is Benji, the dog. He's so perfect. He's so unselfish, and he makes so many sacrifices just so all groups of people can get along."

NOVEMBER
Bryan Millard, Seattle Seahawks offensive guard, on the toughness of his teammate, All-Pro linebacker Fredd Young: "I would rather sandpaper a bobcat's butt in a phone booth than be tackled by Fredd."

DECEMBER
