- Faces in the CrowdJune 11, 2001
Cecil Johnson, Tampa Bay Buccaneer outside linebacker, on why he doesn't play middle linebacker: "Playing middle linebacker is like walking through a lion's cage in a three-piece pork-chop suit."
Elaine Johnson, a Canadian amateur golfer, after her shot struck a tree and landed in her bra: "I'll take the two-stroke penalty, but I'll be damned if I'll play it where it lays."
Joe Sexson, Butler basketball coach, on the Kentucky team that beat his squad by 37 points: " Kentucky's players put their pants on the same way that our players do. It just takes them a little longer to pull them up."
George Sheehan, the physician-author who almost mystically extols the supposed pleasures of long-distance running, after withdrawing from the New York Marathon at 13 miles with a pulled muscle: "There is no bad experience in running. But it will take time to figure out why this is a good one."
Joe Mowad Jr., 9-year-old son of the Cambridge (Ohio) High football coach, asked if he thought he'd get to play for his father someday: "No, he only has a two-year contract."
Neil Bonnett, stock-car driver, explaining why he has a 300-hp motor on his lightweight 19-foot fishing boat: "You hook a bass at 100 miles an hour and it takes the fight right out of him."
David Frischmann, 11-year-old third baseman on the Dannemora (N.Y.) Red Sox Pee wee team, explaining why a ground ball went through his legs: "My hands got tongue-tied."
