What is it about athletes and their amazing ability to twist and torture the English language? Here is an eminently readable, laugh-out-loud, always entertaining, can't-put-it-down collection of 1001 of the must stupefyingly dumb quotes from the world's best athletes. While they might be at the top of the athletic world, their profound inability to communicate clearly and articulately puts them on the bench.
Here's a small sampling: Shaquille O'Neal on whether he had visited the Parthenon during his visit to Greece: "I can't really remember the names of the clubs that we went to." Pat Williams, Orlando Magic general manager, on his team's 7- 27 record in 1992: "We can't win at home. We can't win on the road. I just can't figure out where else to play." Yogi Berra: "Baseball is 90 percent mental--the other half is physical." Readers will want more, and '1001 Stupid Sports Quotes' will provide hours of entertainment.
