I love sports quotes. Sometimes, in fairness, it's because the questions asked are pretty lame. Albert Einstein would probably have had a challenge coming up with a good response to, "Some kind of game today, wasn't it?" But often, it's just because the thought process is...well, let's say, focused elsewhere.
Today's Sports Quote requires a slight background. I'm a big Chicago Cubs fan, so I've been following the travails of their star pitcher, Matt Garza. At the end of last year, he developed a strain in his pitching arm and was shut down for the rest of the season. Then, during Spring Training, finally ready to go, he pulled a muscle in his side. And just this week, his rehab almost finished, he developed soreness in his right arm, and will be re-examined.
That brought about the following comment from Cubs manager Dale Sveum. "Hopefully, it's just routine normal soreness, dead arm, whatever you want to call it."
Whatever I'd like to call it? Well, gee, okay, if it's all the same -- what I would like to call it is anything but a "dead arm."
