“Do I play golf? No, but I have played at it.
“Yes its a great game, but takes so much time and costs so much that few Italians have taken it up.
“The younger Italian-Americans are strong for baseball, football and bowling.

“I think “Buzz” Foley will be a good football coach.
“Sure some of the Italian-Americans hoped Flavio Tossi would get the job. He was a standout at Boston College and a great professional player.
“Perhaps you are right. Certainly a coach should have a good moral influence on the boys. If Tossi is a roughneck it is because of professional football. Anyway I don't think the Italians resent his failure to get the job. The Italian boys will be out there next fall, working for Coach Foley.”
