"I think about the cosmic snowball theory. A few million years from now the sun will burn out and lose its gravitational pull. The earth will turn into a giant snowball and be hurled through space. When that happens it won't matter if I get the next guy out."

The Bears are who we thought they were! That's why we took the damn field. Now if you want to crown them, then crown their behind! But they are who we thought they were! And we let 'em off the hook!

Wrestling is ballet with violence.
~ Jesse Ventura
“[On his childhood] One morning I woke up and found my favorite pigeon, Julius, had died I was devastated and was gonna use his crate as my stickball bat to honor him. I left the crate on my stoop and went in to get something and I returned to see the sanitation man put the crate into the crusher. I rushed him and caught him flush on the temple with a titanic right hand he was out cold, convulsing on the floor like an infantile retard.”

oger Goodell in a Men’s Journal article:

“But up until last year, there was no word of me being dirty — till Roger Goodell, who’s a crook and a puppet, said I was the dirtiest player in the league. If that man was on fire and I had to piss to put him out, I wouldn’t do it. I hate him and will never respect him.” --James Harrison

john mckay was a funny sob and one of the most underrated coaches of all time.  he was a 4-time national champion coach with usc, then took an nfl expansion team that started 0-26 to the playoffs within 3 years.

another of his quotes: "going to green bay is like winning 98th place in a beauty contest with 97 participants".

Without a doubt, mine is from the legendary Antoine Walker. When playing for the Celtics, he was asked during a presser why he shot so many 3's, to which he replied:

"Because there aren't any 4's."
