Why athletes can’t have regular jobs.

This is really an indictment on our education system. Pretty sad……

1. Chicago Cubs outfielder Andre Dawson (ex Montreal Expos) 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.”
2. New Orleans Saint RB George Rogers when asked about the upcoming season: “I want to rush for 1000 or 1500 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 treats us like men. 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..” (Now that is beautiful)

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

13. 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.”
14. In the words of NC State great Charles Shackelford: “I can go to my left or right. I am amphibious.”
15. Former Houston Oilers coach Bum Phillips when asked by Bob Costas why he takes his wife on all the road trips Phillips responded: “Because she’s too ugly to kiss good-bye.”
