Quote-A-Day Part II

October 20, 2014 update: Ah yes, the 2006 World Cup. Hmm. Moving on…. That desk calendar was quite something. LiveJournal again before the world imploded I left.

In anticipation of what could be either a glorious or an abysmal performance on England’s behalf, let’s have some more amusing quotes to put a smile on our collective faces. So let’s kick off with the inimitable wordsmiths that are sports commentators:

“He dribbles a lot and the opposition don’t like it – you can see it all over their faces.”  – “Big Ron” Atkinson
“There is Brendan Foster, by himself, with 20000 people.” – David Coleman
“Chip Hooper is such a big man that it is sometimes difficult to see where he is on the court.” – Mark Cox
“The racecourse is as level as a billiard ball.” – John Francombe

And the rest:
“Either he’s dead or my watch has stopped.” – Groucho Marx
“It was such a lovely day I thought it’s a pity to get up.” – W. Somerset Maugham
“An intelligent man is sometimes forced to be drunk to spend time with his fools.” – Ernest Hemingway
“Marriage is the alliance of two people, one of whom never remembers birthdays and the other who never forgets.” – Ogden Nash.
