? William Perry, the Clemson football team's 6'3", 305-pound freshman middle guard, talking about his childhood: "When I was little, I was big."

? Tommy Lasorda, Dodger manager, dismissing the notion that the Montreal Expos, L.A.'s rival in the National League playoffs, were a better cold-weather team than his own club: "I looked at their roster and saw guys from Miami, Scottsdale and Sacramento."

? Willie Randolph, Yankee second baseman, before the sixth and, as things turned out, concluding game of the World Series: "I'm going to come out and play like there's no tomorrow."
