23 11 2011

Quotes this week, a day late. Happy Thanksgiving to everybody (except the NBA and NBPA):

Giants head coach Tom Coughlin referencing several Giants players being at a New York City nightclub late Tuesday night in which gun shots were fired: “I don’t know what happens good at 2:30 or 3 in the morning. I’ve never been able to figure that one out.”

Oregon running back LaMichael James on the lack of subtly in sign language, a class which many Oregon football players take: “If you’re ugly, you’re ugly. There’s no, ‘She’s all right,’ like there is in English.”

Montana State quarterback DeNarius McGhee when told of the weather conditions for the Montana State-Montana game Saturday – 18 degrees at start time with 60% chance of snow: “That will be lovely.”

ESPN’s Lee Corso, on College Gameday, while throwing a Southern Methodist megaphone off set before picking Houston to beat them: “Ah, fuck it.”

PGA Tour golfer Harrison Frazar after winning a rain-soaked tournament at Pebble Beach in California: “There’s no better place to be miserable.”

Jake Plummer on Tim Tebow’s postgame routine of thanking God for being able to play: “I wish he’d just shut up after a game and go hug his teammates.”

Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer on Manny Pacquiao’s promoter, Bob Arum, who told Golden Boy through retired federal judge Daniel Weinstein that a fight between Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather will not occur. Weinstein was to be a mediator in negotiating a potential showdown: “If you just sit down with Arum, he can at any time have one of his fits, one of his ‘fuck you’ attacks, and the likelihood that he would have a ‘fuck you’ attack in front of a retired judge seemed less likely than if Arum and me would be alone in a room.”

One of Mayweather’s advisors, Leonard Ellerbe, commenting on the Pacquiao camp turning down a negotiation with Mayweather’s camp: “In my opinion, you have three cowards — Bob Arum, (Pacquiao trainer) Freddie Roach and Manny Pacquiao.”

An NFL team executive to Yahoo! Sports’ Jason Cole about Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson: “He’s spectacular and then he’s an idiot and it happens in a matter of a half-second.”
