Quotes of the Week XIV

6 09 2010

Texas Rangers pitcher Cliff Lee’s reaction to an accusation from ESPN radio host Colin Cowherd that Lee doesn’t like pitching for the Rangers:
“Either say who the source is or shut up because I am saying it is not true.”

Boxer Bernard Hopkins on why he’ll battle light heavyweight champion Jean Pascal, almost 20 years his junior, on Dec. 18:

“I hold no malice or bad feelings to those who are concerned about me, but I’ve always been a son of a bitch when it comes to rising up to the occasion.”

Ex-MMA fighter Kimbo Slice on why he wants to join boxing’s heavyweight division:
“I want to see what it’s like to break some ribs, break a jaw with one punch.”

More Slice: “I love fighting. I like to knock people the fuck out.”

Indiana Pacers forward — and Team USA member — Danny Granger in two tweets about his time in Europe at the World Championships in Istanbul, Turkey:

“im dying over here…. how come nobody in europe wears deodorant? guess they didnt get the memo”
“smellin like dead donkeys… no joke”

Brett Favre on his eye dryness:
“I mean, all morning they have been as dry and brittle as a couple of potato chips.”

San Francisco 49ers head coach Mike Singletary relating his breaking up a fight between wide receiver Michael Crabtree and tight end Vernon Davis:
“You have kids and every now and then your kids have some misunderstandings or what have you and they forget that there is a father at home.”

NFL Hall of Famer Terry Bradshaw on Miami Dolphins defensive lineman Kendall Langford losing a $50,000 earring during a recent Dolphins practice:
“”I hope they never find it — $50,000? Go tell that to somebody that can’t pay for his kid’s education or can’t get them into a hospital room and get them treated properly. Here is a guy wearing a $50,000 earring to practice. I hope they stomped on it and I hope he never found it.”

Bradshaw on New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan’s propensity to curse on HBO’s Hard Knocks series:
“He doesn’t play, easy for him to shoot his mouth off.”

New York Giants running back Brandon Jacobs on the NFL:
“No one’s your friend in this business. This is a cutthroat, backstabbing business. That’s just the way it goes. It’s been like that before me. If you expect anything else out of a business like this, you’re crazy.”

Boston Red Sox manager Terry Francona on second baseman Dustin Pedroia going in for foot surgery:
“He actually sent me a picture on his phone before he went in for surgery. He took a picture of himself and he called himself a moron, which I agree with.”

Shaquille O’Neal, perhaps not understanding how these two sentences would look against each other:
“I’ve always considered myself a lucky guy and humble. I think that’s why the Shaquille O’Neal brand has done so well.”

Kimbo is such a joke. He’s gonna get destroyed the first time he fights someone half-decent.
