But I was thrown out for telling a couple of really lame kids on the playground that I had heroin.” ~ George Carlin

I think a lot of people will get a laugh out of it, I’ll tell you that. I’m looking forward to what the locker room’s going to say. But at the end of the day, I’m perfectly fine with who I am as a person and what I have accomplished. It shows a lot of my personality.” ~ Vince Wilfork
  42. “Some teams have a nucleus to build around. The Falcons barely have an embryo.

You’ve already seen the worst.” ~ Jeff Schultz

  52. “I believe that the Lord has a plan for each of us that’s better than anything we can imagine, even if that plan isn’t obvious to us at every stage.

  53. “The sign at the entrance to my gym locker room says, no cell phones please, cell phones are cameras. They are not. A camera is a Nikon or a Leica or Rolleiflex, and when you strike someone with one, they know they have been hit with something substantial.” ~ Danny Lyon
  54. “And if you’re a parent who thinks you’re okay because your kid doesn’t have a phone or iPod yet, and/or you’ve used all the parent controls to filter out explicit material, you’re not okay. The filters are tissue paper and your kid without a phone is on a school bus or in a locker room or at a public park with phone-equipped kids every day. And they’re like all kids in exploring – by whatever means available to them – exactly what their parents are treating as too embarrassing or taboo to talk about.” ~ Carolyn Hax
