NFL72 Update

The Miami News is warning visiting Republicans in town for the GOP convention to not get their hopes up of getting a ticket for the Friday, Aug. 25, 1972, Miami Dolphins exhibition with the Atlanta Falcons in the Orange Bowl. The newspaper recommends Nixonites instead show up for one of the free, open-to-the-public, twice-daily workouts (9:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.) at Biscayne College.

Garo Yepremian, by the way, is part of a National Guard service-and-supply unit, Task Force 50, that is assigned to riot duty for the convention—just as he was in July when the Democratic National Convention took place in Miami Beach. (How often has it happened that both of the major-party conventions took place in the same town?)

In other news, Miami-area Super X drug stores have half-inch, Dolphins three-ring binders on back-to-school sale for 99 cents apiece (“1.59 value”).
