    Sports quotes

    Don Meredith, Dallas Cowboy Quarterback, once said: “Coach Tom Landry is such a perfectionist that if he was married to Raquel Welch, he would expect her to cook.”



    Harry Neale, professional hockey coach: “Last year we couldn’t win at home and we were losing on the road. My failure as a coach was that I couldn’t think of anyplace else to play.”



    Reggie Jackson commenting on Tom Seaver: “Blind people come to the ballpark just to listen to him pitch.”



    Doug Sanders, professional golfer: “I’m working as hard as I can to get my life and my cash to run out at the same time. If I can just die after lunch on Tuesday, everything will be perfect.”



    Mickey Lolich, Detroit Tigers pitcher: “All the fat guys watch me and say to their wives, ‘See, there is a fat guy doing great. Bring me another beer.’”



    Tommy Lasorda , Los Angeles Dodgers manager: “I found out that it’s not good to talk about my troubles. Eighty percent of the people who hear them don’t care and the other twenty percent are glad I’m having them.”



    E.J. Holub, Kansas City Chiefs linebacker regarding his twelve knee operations: “My knees look like they lost a knife fight with a midget.”



    Vic Braden, tennis instructor: “My theory is that if you buy an ice cream cone and make it hit your mouth, you can learn to play tennis. If you stick it on your forehead, your chances aren’t as good.”



    Walt Garrison, Dallas Cowboys fullback when asked if Tom Landry ever smiles: “I don’t know. I only played there for nine years.”



    John Breen, Houston Oilers: “We were tipping off our plays. Whenever we broke from the huddle, three backs were laughing and one was pale as a ghost.”



    Bum Phillips, New Orleans Saints, after viewing a lopsided loss to the Atlanta Falcons: “The film looks suspiciously like the game itself.”



    Al Hrabosky, major league relief pitcher: “When I’m on the road, my greatest ambition is to get a standing boo.”



    Paul Horning, Green Bay Packers running back on why his marriage ceremony was before noon: “Because if it didn’t work out, I didn’t want to blow the whole day.”



    Lou Holtz, Arkansas football coach: “I have a lifetime contract. That means I can’t be fired during the third quarter if we’re ahead and moving the ball.”



    Knute Rockne, when asked why Notre Dame had lost a game: “I won’t know until my barber tells me on Monday.”



    Bill Walton, Portland Trail Blazers: “I learned a long time ago that ‘minor surgery’ is when they do the operation on someone else, not you.”



    George MacIntyre, Vanderbilt football coach surveying the team roster that included 26 freshmen and 25 sophomores: “Our biggest concern this season will be diaper rash.”



    Rick Venturi, Northwestern football coach: “The only difference between me and General Custer is that I have to watch the films on Sunday.”

    E.J. Holub, Kansas City Chiefs linebacker regarding his twelve knee operations: “My knees look like they lost a knife fight with a midget.”
    I remember E.J. He was a colorful character. He started out playing both linebacker and center, but due to degrading mobility he played only center for at least one more season. He died last September but anyone who remembers the early days of the Chiefs will remember him.

    Here's another one. When George Brett was asked about the success of his hemorrhoid treatment he said, "The pain is behind me."

    Yogi-isms:
    1. When you come to a fork in the road, take it.

    2. You can observe a lot by just watching.

    3. It ain’t over till it’s over.

    4. It’s like déjà vu all over again.

    5. No one goes there nowadays, it’s too crowded.

    6. Baseball is 90% mental and the other half is physical.

    7. A nickel ain’t worth a dime anymore.

    8. Always go to other people’s funerals, otherwise they won’t come to yours.

    9. We made too many wrong mistakes.

    10. Congratulations. I knew the record would stand until it was broken.

    11. You better cut the pizza in four pieces because I’m not hungry enough to eat six.

    12. You wouldn’t have won if we’d beaten you.

    13. I usually take a two-hour nap from one to four.

    14. Never answer an anonymous letter.

    15. Slump? I ain’t in no slump… I just ain’t hitting.

    16. How can you think and hit at the same time?

    17. The future ain’t what it used to be.

    18. I tell the kids, somebody’s gotta win, somebody’s gotta lose. Just don’t fight about it. Just try to get better.

    19. It gets late early out here.

    20. If the people don’t want to come out to the ballpark, nobody’s going to stop them.

    21. We have deep depth.

    22. Pair up in threes.

    23. Why buy good luggage, you only use it when you travel.

    24. You’ve got to be very careful if you don’t know where you are going, because you might not get there.

    25. All pitchers are liars or crybabies.

    26. Even Napoleon had his Watergate.

    27. Bill Dickey is learning me his experience.

    28. He hits from both sides of the plate. He’s amphibious.

    29. It was impossible to get a conversation going, everybody was talking too much.

    30. I can see how he (Sandy Koufax) won twenty-five games. What I don’t understand is how he lost five.

    31. I don’t know (if they were men or women fans running naked across the field). They had bags over their heads.

    32. I’m a lucky guy and I’m happy to be with the Yankees. And I want to thank everyone for making this night necessary.

    33. I’m not going to buy my kids an encyclopedia. Let them walk to school like I did.

    34. In baseball, you don’t know nothing.

    35. I never blame myself when I’m not hitting. I just blame the bat and if it keeps up, I change bats. After all, if I know it isn’t my fault that I’m not hitting, how can I get mad at myself?

    36. I never said most of the things I said.

    37. It ain’t the heat, it’s the humility.

    38. If you ask me anything I don’t know, I’m not going to answer.

    39. I wish everybody had the drive he (Joe DiMaggio) had. He never did anything wrong on the field. I’d never seen him dive for a ball, everything was a chest-high catch, and he never walked off the field.

    40. So I’m ugly. I never saw anyone hit with his face.

    41. Take it with a grin of salt.

    42. (On the 1973 Mets) We were overwhelming underdogs.

    43. The towels were so thick there I could hardly close my suitcase.

    44. Little League baseball is a very good thing because it keeps the parents off the streets.

    45. Mickey Mantle was a very good golfer, but we weren’t allowed to play golf during the season; only at spring training.

    46. You don’t have to swing hard to hit a home run. If you got the timing, it’ll go.

    47. I’m lucky. Usually you’re dead to get your own museum, but I’m still alive to see mine.

    48. If I didn’t make it in baseball, I won’t have made it workin’. I didn’t like to work.

    49. If the world were perfect, it wouldn’t be.

    50. A lot of guys go, ‘Hey, Yog, say a Yogi-ism.’ I tell ’em, ‘I don’t know any.’ They want me to make one up. I don’t make ’em up. I don’t even know when I say it. They’re the truth. And it is the truth. I don’t know.
    “Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming “Wow! What a Ride!” - Hunter S. Thompson

    My favorite Yogi story is one day after a hot, sweltering doubleheader he had just showered, and come out of the locker room, wearing snazzy tan slacks, lime green polo, and a flat cap. He met the Yankees owner and his wife in the concourse. She looked Yogi up and down and said "My Yogi, don't you look cool today". His reply "Thanks. You don't look so hot yourself"....

    he was one helluva cowboy too. Spent lots of hours watching him tune up Mullendores cutting horses. I learned a lot from him. Miss him dearly.

    Yeah. E.J. is the only guy to play two different positions in two different Super Bowls. Linebacker in 1966 and center in 1970. He started out his pro career playing both sides of the ball - offense and defense. IIRC in one game he was on the field for then entire game except for a minute or two.

    Interesting that he went to the same college as Patrick Mahomes, Jr.
