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...
