BIG MOMENTS FROM THE PAGES OF SI: AFTER A PHOTO FINISH ON a track
with no photo finish camera, Lee Petty was belatedly judged winner of
the first Daytona 500; 11-0 Syracuse was voted college football's top
team; the Boston Celtics swept the Minneapolis Lakers to regain the
NBA title; and the transplanted Dodgers won the World Series, beating
the Chicago White Sox in six games. Big moments not reported by SI:
Earvin Johnson Jr. was born in Lansing, Mich.; John McEnroe was born
in Wiesbaden, West Germany.
