    WHY ATHLETES CAN\'T HAVE REAL JOBS:

    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 the kids to copulate me."

    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." And, upon hearing Joe Jacobi of the 'Skins 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."

    Torrin Polk, University of Houston receiver, on his coach, John Jenkins: "He treats us like men. He lets us
    wear earrings."

    Football commentator and former player Joe Theismann, 1996: "Nobody in football should be called a
    genius. A genius is a guy like Norman Einstein."

    Senior basketball player at the University of Pittsburgh: "I'm going to graduate on time, no matter how long
    it takes." (now that is beautiful)

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

    Boxing promoter Dan Duva on Mike Tyson hooking up again with promoter Don King: "Why would anyone
    expect him to come out smarter? He went to prison for three years, not Princeton."

    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."

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

    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."
    (I wonder if his IQ ever hit room temperature in January)

    Frank Layden, Utah Jazz president, on a former player: "I told him, 'Son, what is it with you? Is it ignorance
    or apathy?' He said, 'Coach, I don't know and I don't care.'"

    Shelby Metcalf, basketball coach at Texas A&M, recounting what he told a player who received four F's and
    one D: "Son, looks to me like you're spending too much time on one subject."

    Is'nt it the truth? Make million's of dollar's a year, and can't put a simple sentence together! /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif Or they really don't make sense.

    It's so said when being able to chase a ball will make you millions. But a job that takes brains doesn't pay anywhere near that. /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif
