        What, no "Yogi-isms"? What kind of sports quote thread is this?

          The finest of all commentary errors was the late Brian Johnston when England's Peter Willey was batting, and West Indian pace-man Michael Holding was bowling.

          This led to the immortal:

          "The bowler is Holding, the batsman's Willey"

          There is no recording of it, and there are those that claim it never happened.

          I listened to that match, and I swear he said it. Maybe thats just because I want it to have happened.

                  - Yogi Berra
                  Yankee Stadium had some odd late afternoon shadows in left field. A reporter asked Yogi about those shadows when he started playing left field. Yogi replied...

                  "Yeah. It gets late early around here."

                  Once during spring training in Florida, Yogi was wearing a Hawaiian shirt and Bermuda sorts in a hotel lobby. A lady walked up to him and said, "Why Mr. Berra... Don't you look cool!"

                  Yogi replied...
                  "Why thank you ma'am. You don't look so hot yourself!"

                  Moving from Yogi to Casey Stengel...

                  Casey Stengel was the first manager of the 1962 NY Mets (the worst team in baseball history at that point in time). The Mets used three of their first fourteen expansion draft picks on catchers... Hobie Landrith, Chris Cannizzaro and Choo Choo Coleman. When asked why he picked so many catchers, Casey said...

                  "You have to have a catcher because if you don't you're likely to have a lot of passed balls."

                  Mets catcher Choo Choo Coleman was once being interviewed by Mets announcer, Raplh Kiner...

                  Kiner: "Choo Choo... What's your wife's name and what's she like?"
                  Coleman: "Her name is Mrs. Coleman and she likes me."

                  Ralph Kiner is a human quote machine...

                  "All of his saves have come in relief appearances"

                  "Now up to bat for the Mets is Gary Cooper."

                  "Solo homers usually come with no one on base."

                  "The Mets have gotten their leadoff batter on only once this inning."

                  "The reason the Mets have played so well at Shea this year is they have the best home record in baseball."

                  Kiner was a member of the Mets original broadcast team along with Lindsay Nelson and Bob Murphy. Kiner is pushing 90, but he still makes an occasional on-air appearance.

                    The late Bill Shankly - Manager of Liverpool FC:

                    "Some people think football is a matter of life and death. I assure you, it is far more important than that."

                    "This city has 2 great teams. Liverpool and Liverpool Reserves."

                    "The trouble with referees is they know the rules, but they do not know the game."

                      HBO recently aired a documentary film about the legendary 1975 "Thrilla in Manilla," the third and final bout in the Ali-Frazier blood fued. Amazingly, on Joe Frazier's outgoing voice mail message, Frazier says, "my name is Smokin' Joe Frazier, sharp as a razor! Yeah, floats like a butterfly and stings like a bee, I'm the man who done the job. Yeah, he know, look and see. Call us. Bye Bye." By "the job," Frazier apparently means that he's the one who turned Mohammed Ali into a poster boy for punch-drunkenness.

                        Sure I played, did you think I was born at the age of 70 sitting in a dugout trying to manage guys like you? - Casey Stengel

                        I was looking for a Billy Matin quote, but the on I really want has never been published -- from Fenway Park, that afternoon in 1977 when he pulled Reggie Jackson off the field. I'd love to know what Martin barked at him when he hit the dugout.

                          A couple from Cloughie:

                          "I wouldn't say I was the best manager in the business. But I was in the top one."

                          "Rome wasn't built in a day. But I wasn't on that particuar job."

                          When Swede Sven Goren Ericksson was appointed England manager:

                          "At last England have appointed a manager who speaks English better than the players."

                          When he had to deal with Roy Keane:

                          "I only ever hit Roy the once. He got up so I couldn't have hit him very hard."

                          And, finally, on dealing with a player who disagrees with him:

                          "We talk about it for twenty minutes and then we decide I was right."

                          I remember watching him on "Sportsnight" one Wednesday evening in the 80's and he was Fing hilarious.

                            Brian Johnston's

                            Test match...

                            Tony Greig is at second slip, legs wide apart, hands on hips, bending over, waiting for a tickle...

                            Illingworth is relieving himself at the Pavillion End...


                            5th ball of an over, the batsman recieves a direct hit on the Box (cousins should google 'cricket box'). After a delay for the player to recover, he stood and returned to the crease. Johnston commented...

                            and he's coming back now, with just one ball left...

                              British "box" = American "cup" -- like the one that Adrian Beltre should have been wearing a couple of weeks back. I'm suspecting that a lacerated nut really, really, really smarts. Unfortunately, Beltre has yet to speak on the issue, so no quote is currently available, but I'm guessing that he said somthing like, "HOLY SH*T, THAT F*CKING HURTS!" after taking that one-hopper off his sack.
