It's officially Fall and the leaves on the trees are already starting to turn beautiful colors, and the smell in the air in the early morning, has a wonderful crispness to it..
For the men in my life, Fall means only one thing, Football ! Who Hoo!!!!
So this week for Quotable Sunday I thought that I would pay homage to this great, true American sport.
So let me ask you..
."are you ready for some foodball?"
"Nobody in football should be called a genius. A genius is a guy like Norman Einstein"
Joe Theisman ( who is Norman Einstein?)
"We can't run. We can't pass. We can't stop the run. We can't stop the pass. We can't kick. Other than that, we're just not a very good football team right now."
"Football incorporates the two worst elements of American society: violence punctuated by committee meetings."
"If God wanted women to understand men, football would never have been created".
"When I went to Catholic high school in Philadelphia, we just had one coach for football and basketball. He took all of us who turned out and had us run through a forest. The ones who ran into the trees were on the football team."
"If my mother put on a helmet and shoulder pads and a uniform that wasn't the same as the one I was wearing, I'd run over her if she was in my way. And I love my mother"
"You have to play this game like somebody just hit your mother with a two-by-four."
"Thanksgiving dinners take 18 hours to prepare. They are consumed in 12 minutes. Half-times take 12 minutes. This is not coincidence."
"Football is all very well as a game for rough girls, but is hardly suitable for delicate boys"
"You guys line up alphabetically by height. This may take a while."
"Women aren’t interested in things their men spend time on besides their women."
“Some people think football is a matter of life and death. I assure you, it's much more serious than that.”
"Winning isn't everything, but it beats anything that comes in second.”
Paul "Bear" Bryant
