President Reagan is expected to participate by remote control in the Super Bowl on Jan. 20.
It has been reported that through a remote-control broadcast, he may flip the coin to determine who will receive the kickoff in the game between the Miami Dolphins and the San Francisco 49ers. Super Bowl Sunday is the same day Reagan will take his second oath of office in a private ceremony at the White House. His public inaugural will be the following day . . .
Doug Flutie is closer to signing with the New Jersey Generals than he was before his attorney, Bob Woolf, met with the president of the U.S. Football League team, Woolf said.
"Doug doesn't know it yet, but he is," Woolf said after the 5 1/2-hour meeting at his Boston office with Jay Seltzer. "I thought it would take a month to accomplish what we did today."
New Jersey made Boston College's Flutie a territorial pick in the USFL draft . . .
Running back Mike Rozier has come to a "rather painful" decision regarding his future with the USFL's Baltimore Stars and will announce it today, his agent said. Rozier was among the players assigned to the Stars in a merger of the Philadelphia Stars and his former team, the Pittsburgh Maulers.
"The Stars don't want to bring him into Baltimore, because the size of his contract dwarfs (running back) Kelvin Bryant's . . . and we want to be out of Baltimore," said agent Art Wilkinson.
