Editor's NoteTHE SPORTS PAGES consists of two short comedies exploring the impact of professional sports on the lives of everyday people. The first story, HOW DOC WADDEMS FINALLY BROKE 100, concerns a golfing fanatic (Bob Newhart) on trial for the murder of his putting partner (Kelsey Grammer), who had been tormenting him throughout their game. The second story, THE HEIDI BOWL, is a fictionalized recreation of the infamous 1968 Super Bowl broadcast, in which a rookie technician cut off the last few seconds of the very tense game and switched programming to the children's film HEIDI.
