Stupid Quotes from Athletes

We think that athletes are WAY overpaid. Some of these quotes that our friend Cathy sent us prove it. 
Its no surprise that these guys can't get a regular job (that involves the English language) after they leave their playing fields. Enjoy!

 1.  Chicago Cubs  outfielder Andre Dawson on being a role model:
   "I wan' all dem kids to do what I do, to look up to me. I wan' all  de kids to copulate me."

2. New Orleans Saint RB George  Rogers when asked about the upcoming season:    "I   want to rush for 1,000 or 1,500 yards, whichever comes  first."

3. And, upon hearing Joe Jacobi of the 'Skin's  say:   "I'd run over my own mother to win the Super  Bowl,"
    Matt Millen of the Raiders said: "To  win, I'd run over Joe's Mom, too."

4. Torrin Polk,   University of Houston receiver, on his  coach, John Jenkins:
   "He treat us like mens. He  let us wear earrings.."

5. Football commentator and former  player Joe Theismann:   "Nobody in football should  be called a genius. A genius is a guy like Norman  Einstein."

6. Senior basketball player at the     University of Pittsburgh :    "I'm going to graduate on time, no matter how long it  takes."  

7. Bill  Peterson, a Florida State football  coach:   "You guys line up alphabetically by  height.."  And, "You guys pair up in groups of three, and then line up in a circle."

8. Boxing  promoter Dan Duva on Mike Tyson going to prison:    "Why would anyone expect him to come out smarter? He went to  prison for three years, not Princeton ."

9. Stu Grimson, Chicago  Blackhawks left wing, explaining why he keeps a color photo of  himself above his locker: "That's so when I forget how  to spell my name, I can still find my clothes."

10. Lou  Duva, veteran boxing trainer, on the Spartan training regimen of heavyweight Andrew Golota:      "He's a guy  who gets up at six o'clock in the morning, regardless of what time  it is."

11.   Chuck Nevitt , North  Carolina State basketball player,  explaining to Coach Jim Valvano why he appeared nervous at  practice:     "My sister's expecting a  baby, and I don't know if I'm going to be an uncle or an  aunt.   

12.  In the words of  NC State great Charles Shackelford:     "I  can go to my left or right, I am amphibious."

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
