I'm going to take this opportunity to share my favorite sports quotes of every year BUT 2004. "75 percent of the world is covered by water. The rest is covered by Smoot." --Fred Smoot, Washington Redskins cornerback "If you need one yard, I'll get you three. If you need five yards, I'll get you three." --Leroy Hoard, former Minnesota Vikings running back

No fair! Leroy's quote doesn't come from '04, do it? As for 2004, F1 big wig Max Mosely and his "I'm not a team owner, so I don't change my mind every five minutes" after he announced his retirement... Just before he changed his mind. Then there's the guy who bought 'Amberleigh' who went on to win the Grand National this year, who said "I went to Ireland to seal the deal and the woman who owned the horse had the best pair of legs I've ever seen. I'm a sucker for good legs. So I came home and let my partner do the deal." #1 for me though, is Australian Scott Johnson who apologised for calling New Zealand "A poxy little island" by saying "I was wrong, it's two islands."

Tyson's "My future seems much brighter than my past"? Let's just say I can relate. ...

Shaq. "I got somebody, that other guy, who is just as lethal. He's a little bit younger, he got a lot of proving to do, but he's just as lethal. It's my job to make him lethaler, it's my job to make him the lethalest, if that's a word ..." I love Shaq's quotes.

Was it Brian Clough who said to the referee, "Ref, would you give me a yellow card for any thoughts i might have?" The ref said, "No, of course not." Then Clough said, "Well then i think you're an idiot." If anyone knows how that really went or who said it, I would be grateful.

Didn't the tattoo actually say "Kelly Homes Athens 2004"?

I think its like concrete conceptualism? or theoretical practice? How about: "You don't want to shake my hand during spring training." - Jorge Posada, when discussing why he and Moises Alou, among others, urinate on their own hands.
