"You are the handicap you must face. You are the one who must choose your place"
"As athletes, we're used to reacting quickly. Here, it's 'come, stop, come, stop.' There's a lot of downtime. That's the toughest part of the day"
"Winning is habit. Unfortunately, so is losing"

"Thanksgiving dinners take eighteen hours to prepare. They are consumed in twelve minutes. Half-times take twelve minutes. This is not coincidence"
"I won't predict anything historic. But nothing is impossible"
"If you got the game, you got the game. That's why Tiger Woods is out there playing golf with Greg Norman"

"A good hockey player plays where the puck is. A great hockey player plays where the puck is going to be"
"Do you know what my favorite part of the game is? The opportunity to play"
"He hits it long. His shoulders are impressively quick through the ball. That's where he's getting his power from. He's young and has great elasticity"
"He's got everything. He' not a great player yet because he hasn't won any major championships, but it's a matter of time. He's an outstanding talent. I didn't realize how tall he is"
"Overall the fundamentals seem to be there and he's obviously got a very mature head on his shoulders. He's got a kind of presence"
"What's a good tournament for him? Winning it. He's good enough"
"I started playing ball when I was a kid. My dad was a pro ball player and he passed on his knowledge to me"
"The difference between the old ballplayer and the new ballplayer is the jersey. The old ballplayer cared about the name on the front. The new ballplayer cares about the name on the back"
