Rugby quotes!

I'm in the honors lounge (am I ever anyplace else?), and the director's son is in here. He's pretty dang adorable (like, ten years old or so), but I gotta wonder how messed up he's gonna be. I mean, his parents are the linguistics-obsessed director and assistant director of the honors program at Metro - plus, he's currently spinning in a circle in an attempt to get his kite made of paper, popsickle sticks, and yarn to fly.

Well, at least he'll have looks to fall back on! Unless puberty smacks him with an ugly stick, which is possible.

Anyway, found my Rugby Wit book this morning. Some choice quotes:

"The suspicion is growing that the All Blacks will not have to be sublime in France. They will just have to be there." - Stephen Jones, on the All Blacks' chances for the 2007 World Cup.

"It went well. There are no problems, and, as a bonus, it showed that I have a brain!" - Corne Krige, after going for a brain scan.

"You guys line up alphabetically by height and you guys pair up in groups of three, then line up in a circle." - Colin Cooper.

"Most Misleading Campaign of 1991: England's rugby World Cup squad, who promoted a scheme called 'Run with the Ball'. Not, unfortunately, among themselves." - Time Out, 1991.

"I think you enjoy the game more if you don't know the rules. Anyway, you're on the same wavelength as the referees." - Jonathan Davies.

"I couldn't very well hit him could I? I had the ball in my hands." - Tommy Bishop, on his kicking another player.

"Spy on Scotland? What for?" - Djuro Sen, on allegations that the Wallabies had secretly filmed their opponents in training.
