Listening in Charlottesville – Basketball Thoughts

by staff on March 26, 2011

Basketball Final Four Teams Because it’s Final Four time for basketball fans,  below are 5 people’s thoughts about the game:

1.   When I went to Catholic high school in Philadelphia, we just had one coach for football and basketball.   He took all of us who turned out and had us run through a forest.   The ones who ran into the trees were on the football team.     ~George Raveling

2.  The rule was “No autopsy, no foul.”       ~Stewart Granger, on the pickup games of his childhood.

3.  This is the second most exciting indoor sport, and the other one shouldn’t have spectators.      ~Dick Vertleib  

4.  These are my new shoes.  They’re good shoes.  They won’t make you rich like me, they won’t make you rebound like me, they definitely won’t make you handsome like me.   They’ll only make you have shoes like me.   That’s it.       ~From a Charles Barkley commercial for basketball shoes, 1993

5.   If the NBA were on channel 5 and a bunch of frogs making love was on channel 4,  I’d watch the frogs even if they were coming in fuzzy.      ~Bobby Knight
