Phil Rizzuto after his best days...'And at the end of 4 it's Baltimore 5 and the Orioles 2, whoops wait a second. Holy cow did I really say that? Wha huckleberry!'

Vince Lombardi- "We didn't lose the game, we just ran out of time."

Yogi Berra- 'Slump? I ain't in no slump. I just ain't hitting'.

Magic Johnson- Ask not what your teammates can do for you. Ask what you can do for your teammates.

Ronnie Lott- 'If you believe it, the mind can achieve it'.

Martina Navratilova- ""Whoever said it's not whether you win or lose that counts, probably lost."

And one of my favorites, since McCarver and Buck are such Yankee haters:

Tim McCarver- "In my view, as good as Boston was in the first half of this game, that's how as bad they've been now".

Enjoyed these.........better than the jokes today. I remember some of the ones from awhile ago.

Never, ever criticize someone until you have walked a mile in their shoes........for at that point they will be a mile away. And you'll have their shoes !
