Goodwill Games nothing- bu
By EDDY LANDRETH
Sports Editor .
"What we have here is a failure
to communicate. " from the movie
"Cool Hand Luke."
A failure to communicate best
decribes the relationship between the
American public and the recent
The Goodwill Games were an
Olympic-style event set in the Soviet
Union, staged by Ted Turner, "The
Mouth of the South," and the
Turner televised the event from his
cable superstation in Atlanta, Ga.,
Channel 17. According to the ratings,
most of the telecast was lost in space
because few viewers in this country
chose to watch.
Turner said the event was his
attempt to further world peace. Let's
hope world peace does not depend
on the success of these games.
America has a love affair with the
Olympics, which is revealed by the
television ratings every four years.
The Goodwill Games just could not
capture people's imagination in this
The games were certainly success
ful for the Soviets. They managed
to win 118 gold medals, compared
to 42 for the United States. Overall,
they won 241 medals, to 142 for the
There were several instances of
glory for the Stars and Stripes. The
men's and women's basketball teams
surprisingly took the gold.
It should be noted that men's
basketball was not officially part of
the Goodwill Games, but the world
championships. It was the first time
the United States had won the event
since 1954. The men's basketball
games were televised as part of the
Goodwill coverage, but they took
place in Spain.
UNC played a role in men's
basketball in the form of guard
Kenny Smith. He was the star of the
championship game with 23 points,
including the game-winning basket.
Besides world peace, Turner surely
hoped for some old-fashioned cap
italistic profits. Instead, the losses
were reported to be in the millions.
This probably does not upset Turner
too much. His major-league baseball
team, the Atlanta Braves, annually
loses millions of dollars. He must
have very deep pockets.
One factor Turner probably hoped
would ensure the games of an
audience was the boycott of the
Olympics by the United States in
1980 and then by the Russians in
1984. Since the lack of competition
between the countries did not create
an audience, the next games, which
are scheduled for 1990 in Seattle,
Wash., may be doomed before they
begin. They would be scheduled to
occur two years after the next
Olympics, in which the two countries
are expected to meet.
Maybe by 1990 Turner can
improve his ability to communicate
with the American viewing public.
Of Olden, Love and Bowling
By MIKE BERARDINO
If you're anything like me, you're
probably sick- and tired of reading
about drugs in sports. If so, this
column is for you. The following
notes, quotes and anecdotes pertain
exclusively to the non
pharmaceutical side of the sports
world: a sort of potpourri of summer
sports shorts designed to enlighten
and entertain. Here goes:
Well, the plot continues to
thicken in the soap-opera story of
talented Virginia basketball star
Olden Polynice. You remember
Olden, of course. He's the one who
several months ago was caught
shoplifting a $17 set of stereo head
phones. At first, it seemed the Big
O, a rising senior, would be sus
pended for the fall semester but
would be eligible to rejoin the team
on Jan. 1, just in time for the crucial
stretch of ACC games.
Alas, on Monday UVa Athletic
Director Dick Schultz revoked Poly
nice 's athletic scholarship, proclam
ing him out for the upcoming year
but eligible to return for the 1987
Despite the latter possibility, don't
expect to see the big guy step on an
ACC court to do battle ever again.
His options? Well, it's too late to join
the NBA for this season. The Con
tinental Basketball Association is
always a possibility. Or how about
' But if the CBA proves fruitless,
Polynice can sell, the rights to his
story to CBS for a made-for-TV
movie. The Perils of Polynice maybe?
Or That Fatal Walkman The
Olden Polynice Story?
Former UNC golfer Davis Love
III is drawing raves on the PGA
circuit for his long-distance driving.
Love is bashing his tee shots an
average of 285.4 yards tops on
the tour. However, there's more to
golf than moon-shot tee-shots. Wit
ness the less-than-legendary list of
other linksters in the top 10 in driving

Jones, Bill Glasson and Dan
Here's one from the "You must
be joking!" file. After four live shows,
ESPN's Wednesday night coverage
of the pro bowler's tour is faring quite
well, thank you. The two-hour show
is averaging 1.6 in the Nielsens, not
bad for a sport where the biggest thrill
comes from picking up the elusive
7-10 split. My inherent curiosity
prompts me to ask, "Who are these
viewers? And don't they have any
thing better to do?"
