Quotes of the Week XVII

12 09 2011

I’m giving Quotes of the Week another shot. I think it’s a fun addition to this blog, given the huge amount of athlete’s quotes on the Web every week and their propensity to say something funny, idiotic or otherwise. The timing for this is tricky, but I think the following timeline will work best: begin tracking current week’s quotes Monday and post by the following Monday morning. There will be weeks when the quotes are light, such as this one. The following quotes certainly don’t encapsulate the last week in sports. I do the best I can with the time I’m willing to devote to it. If you would like to suggest a quote to add, please email (kyle.stack@gmail.com) or tweet me (@KyleStack) and I’ll run your Twitter account (or another social media platform) so that you get some pub. To be on my blog is a gigantic reward, I know.


Chris Bosh on playing video games: “It’s cool to do cool things.”

Rob Ryan on the foot fetish story that his brother, Rex, was connected to last year: “My wife, she’s got everything. She’s got great feet, too. She’s got everything nice. What the hell?”

How one NFL player (an “anonymous #24”) described to Complex the way groupies get the players to talk to them: “They just stare at us when we’re in the club…It’s like you’re going to the dog pound, and they’re just waiting to get chosen.”

Jaguars quarterback Luke McCown, who became a starter after the team released David Garrard: “I’ve never looked at myself and said I’m a career backup.” In 16 career NFL games before 2011’s Week 1, McCown had a 59.3 completion percentage, 1,739 yards, 9 touchdowns and 10 interceptions.

Tony La Russa on Morgan’s propensity to start altercations: “It takes away from the player that he’s been for them or wherever he’s been with his fuse being so short and actually looking for things to instigate. So I hope he gets a clue.”
