      One of the morning show guys on The Fan out of Pittsburgh said this about the arrest of Oakley at an NBA game, "He hit more people in 4 seconds than Jarvis Jones did in his Steeler career!" Jones was the first round pick in 2013.

        I remember some kids crowding Oakley after a game at the Garden. When they pressed too close, he told them to back the f*** up -- and they did.

          "Tell him he's Wayne Gretzky" Is what Oilers head coach Ted Green told the trainers later after Shaun Van Allen suffered a concussion and couldn't remember his name in a season that was one of the Oilers worst.

                From way back, the manager of the Pirates found a half-full bottle of liquor in the locker room. He asked heavy drinker Paul Waner if he was the offender. Waner replied, "No, if it was mine it would have been empty"

                  Can't remember the people involved. It may have been Ballard (owner) about Bower (goalie). Anyways this one always makes me laugh.

                  Bower played really bad last night. He was so depressed that he tried committing suicide by jumping in front of a bus but it went through his legs.

                    That was the joke about Fuhr with the Oilers although it may have been told earlier.

                        Scotland being crushed 9 - 3 at Wembley.

                        Unidentified fan; "Efter the gemme Haffey (Frank Haffey, Scotland goalkeeper on the day, and a regular in the Celtic side that dominated Scottish football for nearly a decade) tried tae pit is heid in is hauns an missed." (Denis Law reports that Haffey was the only one singing in the bath after the match).

                        Jock Stein, before Scotland played Sweden (and won): "They're nothing tae worry aboot as lang as you boys keep the heid, just watch oot fur the big, blonde guy."

                              Johan Cruyff

                              Any living Dutchman can reproduce at least one of these 5 quotes by its most famous soccer player, Johan Cruijff:

                              “Every disadvantage has its advantage.” Hands down his best known.

                              “If you can’t win, make sure you don’t lose.” Obvious and pragmatic. If your opponent outclasses you, go down with minimal damage.

                              “Playing football is very simple, but playing simple football is the hardest thing there is.” Holds true in any field of life, not just soccer.

                              “Before I make a mistake, I don’t make that mistake.” Poetic rendering of 'never make the same mistake twice'.

                              “If I wanted you to understand it, I would have explained it better.” Dripping with cockiness and contempt
                              BoRG

                              You may not be interested in War, but War is interested in You - Leon Trotski, June 1919.

                                Good one!

                                My college coach (in his 70's) once asked our infielder coming into the dugout if what he had was a glove or a brick painted brown

                                He also would say/sing when a umpire made a bad call- 'altogether now... three blind mice'

                                I once got a spray hit to rightfield (RH batter) then got taken out for a runner when there were two outs (I was catcher). As I came into the dugout he said-
                                'hey Fred... it looked liked you hit that one with a wet Sporting News'

                                Going to the Conference Championship Tourney at the end of the year we were in two vans and he was driving our van. Well... we took the off-ramp from the highway. Only it was not an off-ramp but an on-ramp to the HWY!
                                Lucky we were not all killed.

                                We broke open the equipment bags and eventually when we pulled up beside the other van at the stadium we were all wearing batting helmets and catcher's equipment. It was hilarious.

                                Good times.
