One reason outfielders don't have stronger arms might be they don't practice as much as we did. Most teams today don't take outfield practice. Another reason is baseball has to compete with other sports now - basketball football soccer - for the better athletes that might have more skills and stronger arms.
As a kid I was short and only weighed 95 pounds. And though I was active in a lot of Sports and got along with most of the guys I think I used comedy as a defense mechanism. You know making someone laugh is a much better way to solve a problem than by using your fists.
Over the years I've enjoyed working for WFAN and MSG - two sports giants in the industry. There couldn't be a better fit due to the long-standing history both entities have had with NY sports.
I'm in the perfect position. It's a sports position and a political position where I can help better the lives of athletes around the world.
If I wasn't dyslexic I probably wouldn't have won the Games. If I had been a better reader then that would have come easily sports would have come easily... and I never would have realized that the way you get ahead in life is hard work.
We all know that girls who compete in sports perform better in school are physically healthier and have a stronger self-esteem.
I would venture to guess that if I was a construction worker... who requested a transfer to another department for the betterment of his family I would be commended for it. But because it's sports there's just so much passion added to it.
We're going to have more kids playing and we're going to have a better chance of finding those players Minor sports in a community is for fun and recreation. For everyone.
Being a celebrity you always get really good seats to sporting events but you never get as good seats as the photographers get. And I really love sports. So one of the scams I have going now is I want to learn sports photography so I can get better seats at a sporting event.
I am very slow to warm. I've always been sort of a loner. I didn't play team sports. I am better one-on-one than in big groups.
I don't know anything that builds the will to win better than competitive sports.
Nobody's a natural. You work hard to get good and then work to get better. It's hard to stay on top.
One man practicing sportsmanship is far better than a hundred teaching it.

Bobby Knight told me this: 'There is nothing that a good defense cannot beat a better offense.' In other words a good offense wins.
RFK was a compelling figure because he was willing to challenge his audiences and in turn connect with them in a unique way. Kennedy showed that our values define us and can inspire others to believe in the possibility of change and a better society.
I think that when we have a better educated society when there is less violence in our cities when people get back into the workforce and have the opportunity to take care of themselves and their families - that for me really is the kind of success and the kind of America that I think most of us still want we aspire to.
You forget that you do choose your life and there are so many things to be grateful for and I feel like society has gotten to that point where we're always looking for the next and the better and we lose sight of what's actually in front of us.
Watching people just look out for themselves I think is extremely interesting. It goes right back to something like 'The Beggar's Opera' - the underbelly of society how it operates and how that reflects their so-called betters.
And from a military school which taught me that to fit into society you can't just do anything you damn well please because it will suit you. And that it's much better to be with the winners than it is with the losers.
My main concern is theater and theater does not reflect or mirror society. It has been stingy and selfish and it has to do better.
If more people were actively engaged in advocating their positions I think we'd have a better society.
Even if one is interested only in one's own society which is one's prerogative one can understand that society much better by comparing it with others.
There are few better measures of the concern a society has for its individual members and its own well being than the way it handles criminals.
