Please, please, please, let us read these quotes in 1998.
"Hell, yes, I quit. I shoulda been fired. All I did was take the damn Super Bowl champions and turn 'em into Rice."
"I don't play for personal recognition. I don't play for money. What's important to me is the team. T-E-A-M."
"So I decided, Who was I kidding? No way in hell I was going to make par from there. Eight or nine maybe, but not par. So I took my bogey, and I was happy with it."
"My next project? A four-hour epic on the Florida Marlins."
"Get open underneath. I'll pass it to you."
"Sometimes I look at the things I do and I think, God, what an ass."
"Look, I'm not afraid to say it. I'm going to hit 70 this year. Watch me. Follow me. Put me on Nightline every night. I get paid boatloads to play. I can handle it."
—KEN GRIFFEY JR.
"I'll have the cottage cheese plate, please."
