The Genius of Sport

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I was doing a little reading on the throne this morning in Uncle John's Giant 10th Anniversary Bathroom Reader. (great book BTW)

I came across this page of sports quotes that had me chuckling pretty good, and I thought I'd share them here.


"We have only one person to blame, and that's each other."
- Barry Black, N.Y. Ranger, explaining how a brawl started

"He fakes a bluff!"
- Ron Fairly, S.F. Giants announcer

"Winfield goes back to the wall. He hits his head on the wall - and it rolls off! It's rolling all the way to second base! This is a terrible thing for the Padres."
- Jerry Coleman, S.D. Padres radio announcer, describing a fly ball hit by a member of the opposing team

"We are experiencing audio technicalities."
- Ralph Kiner, N.Y. Mets announcer

"If I wasn't talking, I wouldn't know what to say."
- Chico Resch, N.Y. Islanders goalie

"Arnie, usually a great putter, seems to be having trouble with his long put. However, he has no trouble dropping his shorts."
- Golf broadcaster, during a tournament

"Kansas City is at Chicago tonight - or is that Chicago at Kansas City? Well, no matter...Kansas City leads in the eighth, 4 to 4."
- Jerry Coleman, Padres announcer, going through the scoreboard on air

"His reputation preceded him before he got here."
- Don Mattingly, N.Y. Yankees' star, on new pitcher Dwight Gooden

"Lintz steals second standing up! He slid, but he didn't have to."
Jerry Coleman, Padres announcer

"I don't want to tell you any half-truths unless they're completely accurate."
- Dennis Rappaport, boxing manager, explaining his silence regarding boxer Thomas Hearns

"It's about 90 percent strength and 40 percent technique."
- Johnny Walker, wrist-wrestling champion, on what it takes to be a winner

"Today is Father's Day, so everyone out there: Happy Birthday!"
- Ralph Kiner, Mets announcer

Sounds like 'ol Jerry Coleman in San Diego is a real rocket scientist. He made the list 3 times.

Yes, Jerry Coleman is...well, he's...special.



If I have to listen to the Padres game on the radio, I make sure to turn the sound down.

murbot, is your ass still asleep or have you recovered yet? You know, if you had an iBook with Airport, you could dictate the whole thing to us straight from the throne!
