Favorite Quotes.....

So what are some of your favorite quotes from wrestlers or coaches?

Being a St. Paris Graham fan, I'll lead off with my all time favorite from coach Jeff Jordan after beating St. Eds for the first time in 2008: "You go up to St Eds and see all their state and national title banners, and it's very intimidating. But our little hillbilly school from St Paris Ohio, here in the cornfields, went up there (Cleveland) and beat them......And not only did we beat them, we kicked their butt!"

Though off topic because it's football, I'll throw in my favorite Woody Hayes quote after pounding Michigan and rubbing it in by going for a two point conversion at the end of a game: Coach Woody Hayes was asked "why did you go for two with a big lead at the end of the game?" To which he replied "Cause I couldn't go for 3"......gotta love Woody!

Should've included this gem from Dan Gable:

"Gold medals aren't really made of gold. They're made of sweat, determination and a hard-to-find alloy called guts."

Don't practice until you get it right, practice until you can't get it wrong.

Louden Swain: You never took a night off to see me wrestle before. They'll dock you for that.

Elmo: Hey, kid - money ain't everything.

Louden Swain: It's not that big a deal, Elmo. I mean, it's six lousy minutes on the mat, if that.

Elmo: You ever hear of Pele?

Louden Swain: Yeah, he's a, a soccer player.

Elmo: A very famous soccer player.
[pause]
Elmo: I was in the room here one day... watchin' the Mexican channel on TV. I don't know nothin' about Pele. I'm watchin' what this guy can do with a ball and his feet. Next thing I know, he jumps in the air and flips into a somersault and kicks the ball in - upside down and backwards... the goddamn goalie never knew what the hit him. Pele gets excited and he rips off his jersey and starts running around the stadium waving it around his head. Everybody's screaming in Spanish. I'm here, sitting alone in my room, and I start crying.
[pause]
Elmo: That's right, I start crying. Because another human being, a species that I happen to belong to, could kick a ball, and lift himself, and the rest of us sad-assed human beings, up to a better place to be, if only for a minute... let me tell ya, kid - it was pretty goddamned glorious. It ain't the six minutes... it's what happens in that six minutes.

You, Whizzer King, are the MVP poster of the evening. Well done!

Thank you, my friend, for your many contributions to the yappi site. This site could use a lot more fans of the sport, such as yourself, to share their wit and wisdom with others.

Few on this site realize how much I cherish our friendship through the years. And how can I forget our senior prom when you landed a date with the prettiest girl in the school. You drove her home from the dance, walked her to the door, looked into her eyes as she whispered that magical, memorable line...........

Awesome! Too bad it doesn't change the fact that this is a dumb thread.
