Quotes of the Week I

22 01 2010

In order to give people something to laugh about as they officially enter the weekend, I’ve decided to post the top quotes of the week every Friday morning. These are comments I find from reading mostly AP stories, although occasionally I might discover some words of wisdom from a non-AP story or on TV. I’d like to find quotes from all types of sports but this week we’re limited to football, baseball and basketball. Here we go:

USC women’s basketball coach Michael Cooper after his first win against the school’s rival:
“My opening statement is [expletive] UCLA.”

Ex-MLB catcher Carlton Fisk on why it was inexcusable for Mark McGwire, among other players, to use steroids:
“Try having your knees operated on and catching for 30 years. Do you think you feel good when you go out there? [McGwire] had to stand around and play first base. So excuuuuuse me.”

Florida head coach Urban Meyer on the son he wish he had — Tim Tebow:
“There’s no doubt in my mind that he can play quarterback in the NFL.”

Eight-year-old Andrew Brower of Kimball, Minn. on why he drew Jesus wearing a Brett Favre Vikings jersey for a school project:
“I just thought of it because Brett Favre is the quarterback and Jesus is like the quarterback of the world.”

Pistons forward Charlie Villanueva on ex-Pistons forward Rasheed Wallace’s return to Detroit for a Celtics-Pistons game:
“Of course, he wanted to show the fans what they’ve been missing. But Charlie V’s here.”

Clippers center Marcus Camby on studying the trajectory of a shot in order to block it:
“It’s like geometry out there.”

Celtics forward Glen Davis in response to Detroit fans calling him “fat boy”:
“Suck my dick!”

Self-proclaimed lifelong Jets fan Patrick Freer during a Jets pep rally in Manhattan. He apparently wasn’t told that every Jets fan should cheer for the team by expecting them to lose:
“We’ll also be at the Jets ticker-tape parade.”

Colts linebacker Clint Session on the upcoming game vs. the Jets:

“We’re licking our chops right now.”
