Owens wants a $50,000 contract. 'The Sis (UFO intelligences),' writes Owens, 'have beaten you eight games out of nine (Owens apparently counts exhibition games), and it will only get worse. The Sis have beaten the Jets also. Both teams will be 'snakebit' from now on . . . until you decide to employ the services of PK Man (Owens) and the Sis."

Claiming he was publicly insulted by Bullets' coach Gene Shue's refusal to use his powers to help beat the Milwaukee Bucks, the Norfolk man said yesterday he will beat Baltimore 'play by play, game by game.'"
