So what are your favorites???

I love the Herb Brooks quote, "When you pull on that jersey, the name on the front is a hell of alot more important than the one on the back." Which is even more appropriate with the World Cup comming up in a month.

I also love the quote about baseball from Ernie Harwell. "Baseball? It's just a game - as simple as a ball and a bat. Yet, as complex as the American spirit it symbolizes. It's a sport, business - and sometimes even religion."
