Maxims, Quips, and Pronouncements for Writers and FansBook - 2000
Sports figures have famously always said what's on their mind--and what comes out of their mouths is often humorous, poignant, brutal, eloquent, pithy or tragic--or sometimes all of those rolled into one unforgettable quote. This is a completely revised, updated and enlarged collection of 2,801 sports quotations, the first edition of which was hailed by Choice magazine as excellent...clearly superior to [the competition]. The quotes are divided into 27 major categories (from Auto Racing to Yachting), and within each category the quotes are arranged alphabetically (allowing quicker access for those who know how one starts). All of the quotes are thoroughly indexed by speaker and by subject and key words.
