ON THE SIDELINES : Ex-Viking Kapp Buys B.C. Lions

From Times Wire Services

Former Minnesota Vikings quarterback and University of California Coach Joe Kapp is returning to the scene of his greatest success to become president and part-owner of the British Columbia Lions.

Stock market entrepreneur Murray Pezim, a major player in the Vancouver Stock Exchange who bought the Canadian Football League club from a failing community ownership in September, did not say what percentage of the team Kapp would own.

Kapp led the Lions into the CFL championship game, the Grey Cup, in 1964.
