Since I'm not going to be interviewed by ESPN any time soon, here are some of my personal faves:
From Major League:
"Look at this fucking guy."
"FORGET THE CURVEBALL VAUGHN GIVE 'IM THE HEATER!"
"God damnit Dorn get in front of the damn ball. Don't give me this 'o-lay' bullshit."
From Bull Durham:
"Well, he really hit the shit outta that one didn't he...guy gets a free steak!"
From Jerry McGuire:
Jerry: "I am out here for you, you dont know what its like for me...out here for you, it is an up at dawn pride-swallowing siege that I can never fully tell you about, ok?! God! Help me...help me Rod, help me help you...help me help you....help me....help you."
Rod: (laughs)"Man!...you are hanging on by a very thin thread. And I DIG that about you, Jerry! Help me, Jerry! Help me help you! (walks out laughing)."
From A League of Their Own: (and, yes, I liked that movie, so stuff it.)
"Yeah, I'm just going home, grab a shower and shave, give the wife a little pickle-tickle, and I'm on my way."
"Uh, Lord, hallowed be Thy name. May our feet be swift; may our bats be mighty; may our balls... be plentiful. Lord, I'd just like to thank You for that waitress in South Bend. You know who she is - she kept calling Your name. And God, these are good girls, and they work hard. Just help them see it all the way through. Okay, that's it."
"Gracefully...and grandly. Gracefully...and grandly. GRACEFULLY! ... and graaand-leee."
From The Replacements:
Shane Falco: I think I'm just going to lie here for a moment and collect my thoughts. Daniel Bateman: Work shit out, right?
From Varsity Blues:
"Boy, you are the damn dumbest smart kid I know."
(As he steals a cop car) "I'm goin' to jail."
"Wangers on the glass?"
From Ace Ventura, Pet Detective: (I know. Not a sports movie, but it involves Dan Marino)
Dan Marino: Got any more of that gum, Ace? Ace Ventura: That's none of your damn business. And I'll thank you to stay out of my personal affairs.
And that's all I can think of for now.
