They Said It

1987: "That was one of the 10 greatest sporting events in Dallas history, period."

--Brad Sham, then-sports talkshow host for KRLD radio on Game 6 of the MISL Championship Series played on this date. In a telephone conversation in 2001, Mr. Sham said that while that Game 6 may not still be in the Top 10 Dallas sporting events today, because of the Super Bowls, Stanley Cup and American League playoff games played since that date, but that match "would remain in the Top 20."
