Why Athletes can't hold down a real job

Chicago Cubs outfielder Andre Dawson on being a role model: "I wan' all dem kids to do what I do, to look up to me. I wan' all dem kids to copulate me."

New Orleans Saint RB George Rogers when asked about the upcoming season: "I want to rush for 1,000 or 1,500 yards, whichever comes first."

And, upon hearing Joe Jacobi of the 'Skins 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."

Torrin Polk, University of Houston receiver, on his coach, John Jenkins: "He treats us like men. He lets us wear earrings."

Football commentator and former player Joe Theismann, 1996: "Nobody in football should be called a genius. A genius is a guy like Norman Einstein."

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)

Bill Peterson, a Florida State football coach: "You guys line up alphabetically by height." And, "You guys pair up in groups of three, then line up in a circle." (My personal favorite!)

Boxing promoter Dan Duva on Mike Tyson hooking up again with promoter Don King: "Why would anyone expect him to come out smarter? He went to prison for three years, not Princeton ."

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."

Lou Duva, veteran boxing trainer, on the Spartan training regime of heavyweight Andrew Golota: "He's a guy who gets up at six o'clock in the morning regardless of what time it is."

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)

Frank Layden, Utah Jazz president, on a former player: "I told him, 'Son, what is it with you? Is it ignorance or apathy?' He said, "Coach, I don't know and I don't care."

Shelby Metcalf, basketball coach at Texas A&M, recounting what he told a player who received four F's and one D: "Kid, looks to me like you're spending too much time on one subject."

Amarillo High School and Oiler coach Bum Phillips when asked by Bob Costas why he takes his wife on all the road trips, Phillips responded: "Because she is too ugly to kiss good-bye." (Dead man walking.)

Kudos to Steve...

Southside of Town

Well whats going on down here?

Classes are going well. So far I think I like computer science the best, then music, then math and physics. In computer science we doing some very basic programing which is fun to design stuff and see the work you do come about.

In music class we are going to the ordinary songs of the mass in the catholic church. Very interesting. Such as the Kyrie, Gloria, Credo, Sanctus, and Agnus Dei. We had to listen to these songs and I liked the Gloria and Sanctus the best.

In Math we are learning about Statistics. Fun! Pretty straight forward. My teacher is really slow on some things, but really fast on others and it seems like most of the class knows more than he does about certain subjects.

In physics we have just been assigned to our teams for our mock hearing that we are going to do. We are doing a HICCUP(Hypothetical Integrated Combined Cycle Utility Power Plant). Some of the teams our Labor, Environmentalist, Community...etc. My team is the Citing Council and we get to decide if we want to build this power plant or axe it. Everyone has to write a paper on for or against certain Issues in their certain group. Some of the Issues are like Need for electricity, Air quality, Water supply, Land use....etc. This should be interesting.

Lets see, living in Ashland....hmmm....pretty good. The town is pretty small. I only know one side of the town. Uh, Steve and Davy are fun to live with. We are not at each others throats.................yet. This past week we ate some hamburgers, burritos(I made them!!!), and pizza together. Oh yeah, we had some green flaky things too. :) I saw Brian this morning before music class, so it is cool to see a familiar face in the crowd. Also Stephen Mader is in my Math class.

Well I guess there is nothing else to report....thanks for your prayers!
How about an "apod"?
