Sports of every sort had always appealed to me.
I'm not that clued up on the American sports yet, really.
Football is a simple game. Twenty-two men chase a ball for 90 minutes and at the end, the Germans always win.
I had a great interest in sports. I had three older brothers who were great athletes. I was not.
I don't know why people question the academic training of an athlete. Fifty percent of the doctors in this country graduated in the bottom half of their classes.
Football is violence and cold weather and sex and college rye.
Many baseball fans look upon an umpire as a sort of necessary evil to the luxury of baseball, like the odor that follows an automobile.
I'm a huge sports fan.
If you look at all aspects of all sports, everything comes down to basics and fundamentals.
The stance I took was there is no room for racial bias anywhere in sports. I believe that was basically all I said about it. Certainly I was cast as an abolitionist. Death threats came. Hate mail came.
I hate ready-made suits, button-down collars, and sports shirts.
I enjoy sports, and love being involved in any outdoor sport from volleyball to softball. I'm not being immodest when I say I'm a natural athlete.
