    Default Why athletes can't have regular jobs

    1. Chicago Cubs outfielder Andre Dawson on being a role model: "I want' all
    dem kids to do what I do, to look up to me. I wan' all the kids to copulate
    me."

    2. New Orleans Saint RB George Rogers when asked about the upcoming season:
    "I want to rush for 1,000 or 1,500 yards, whichever comes first."

    3. And, upon hearing Joe Jacobi of the 'Skin's say: "I'd run over my own
    mother to win the Super Bowl," Matt Millen of the Raiders said: "To win, I'd
    run over Joe's Mom, too."

    4. Torrin Polk, University of Houston receiver, on his coach, John Jenkins:
    "He treats us like men. He lets us wear earrings."

    5. Football commentator and former player Joe Theismann: "Nobody in football
    should be called a genius. A genius is a guy like Norman Einstein."

    6. Senior basketball player at the University of Pittsburgh: "I'm going to
    graduate on time, no matter how long it takes." (Now that is beautiful)

    7. Bill Peterson, a Florida State football coach: "You guys line up
    alphabetically by height." And, "You guys pair up in groups of three, and
    then line up in a circle."

    8. Boxing promoter Dan Duva on Mike Tyson going to prison: "Why would anyone
    expect him to come out smarter? He went to prison for three years,
    not Princeton."

    11. Chuck Nevitt, North Carolina State basketball player, explaining to
    Coach Jim Valvano why he appeared nervous at practice: "My sister's
    expecting a baby, and I don't know if I'm going to be an uncle or an aunt."
    (I wonder if his IQ ever hit room temperature in January)

    12. Frank Layden , Utah Jazz president, on a former player: "I told him,
    'Son, what is it with you? Is it ignorance or apathy?' He said, 'Coach, I
    don't know and I don't care.'"

    13.. Shelby Metcalf, basketball coach at Texas A&M, recounting what he told
    a player who received four F's and one D: "Son, looks to me like you're
    spending too much time on one subject."

    14. In the words of NC State great Charles Shackelford "I can go to my left
    or right, I am amphibious."
