I'll never forget the number. Sports Phone. Man, I used to sneak calls to it as much as I could in the early-mid-Eighties. I had to sneak them because the calls were expensive and if too many showed up on the phone bill my ass was new mown grass. But still, in those days I'd do whatever I could to get an up-to-date score so it was worth the risk.
