?Sam Aubrey, Oklahoma State basketball coach, asked how he slept after his team's 83-62 loss to Colorado: "Just like a baby. I would sleep an hour, then wake up and cry for an hour."

? Tim McCarver, Philadelphia Phillie catcher, formerly of the St. Louis Cardinals: "I remember one time going out on the mound to talk with Bob Gibson. He told me to get back behind the batter, that the only thing I knew about pitching was it was hard to hit."

? Abner Haynes, former Miami Dolphin halfback, recalling the team's early days: "They trained Flipper so that when we scored a touchdown he'd come flying through this flaming hoop. Back then that little dude didn't get many chances to jump."
