Freakonomics blog is asking for recent sports quotations. Don't worry, my favorite one was the fifth comment.
Jim Mora, then-coach of the Indianapolis Colts, when asked about his team making the playoffs: “What’s that? Ah — playoffs? Don’t talk about — playoffs?! You kidding me?! I just hope we can win a game!”
It's just applicable in so many situations. Including right now, when I AM talking about playoffs.

GameCast on ESPN has this new (?) thing with statistics. It's like, "Chances of scoring 1+ runs this inning (2 outs, bases empty): 8.56%." It goes perfectly with tonight's new Simpsons (MoneyBART is the name of it), in which the nerds tell Lisa that baseball is all about statistics. And then then have a predicted winner. And it looks like there's a 91% chance I'm about to be one game closer to losing a bet on my Reds...

anything is possible when you smell like a monster.

okay, guaranteed you will think this is awesome [FRB says, to the entire internet].

i'm on a horse. [moo!] cow.

SVU recap.

B: Oh, I think this is the one where Olivia lets a case get to her personally.
N: Next, can we watch the one where Stabler gets mad and crosses the line?

Later, we're going to watch the one where Munch says something
controversial and they all talk about it for five minutes until Cragen
comes in.
