? Casey Stengel, on his days as an outfielder: "I was such a dangerous hitter I even got intentional walks in batting practice."

? Manuel Santana, after being upset in the first round at Wimbledon: "For the past year everyone tried extra hard to beat me just because I was the Wimbledon champion. Now it will be different. I will be one of the hunters instead of the hunted man."

? Y. A. Tittle, discussing the 49ers' surplus of quarterbacks: "I've got a plan. I'll start John Brodie in deference to his age, then confuse the opposition with George Mira in the second quarter, give the Go-go Generation something to cheer about by using Steve Spurrier in the third quarter and then in the fourth quarter I'll come in myself to clean up the mess."
