It was a short flight from Seattle but for us that was it we arrived in Canada to begin the long tour promoting quality basketball by playing with the Canadian college teams. There was enormous press coverage. Some of the stars (Bocevski and Radocanovic, members of the Yugoslav national team, the champions of the World, specially) got their photos splashed top to bottom on the first pages of the local press.
We were dazzled. A virgin forest in the center of the city, the real Aston Martin driven by Sean Connery in the role of James Bond, the 007 secret agent, was there taken out for sale because the owner did not want it any more.
We were treated royally. The lobby of hotel Georgia was packed with TV crews, the hosts. My, I could not collect my thoughts because everybody needed interpreting. What did the Palestinian instructor tell the next class of spies:
-Learn the codes young man because if the Israelis get you, they bit the shit out of you if you do not know them!
I gave the team an express course in English, but they had some other, strange requests for me.
