Quote of the day
"Failure is not fatal, but failure to change might be." -- John Wooden (1910-2010)
The Celtics did what they had to do, and what the statistical history said they would do (see June 9 blurb). Now the series starts – unless you believe that history has already spoken and the Lakers simply have to play out the script. Whatever. The surprise last night was that it was the second team of the Celtics that eventually won the game – for the most part playing against the Lakers starters.
Cleveland handled Boston ace Jon Lester with aplomb last night. Staked to a 5-0 lead after two innings, Lester couldn’t hold it. After beating Lester and Buchholz in back-to-back games, is the Tribe now ready for Stephen Strasburg?
The World Cup is about to start. I must confess that I haven’t got the fever. Maybe if the US team advances deep in the Knockout stage I’ll watch some game action, but until then, Sports Center highlights will be sufficient.
As you’ve probably noticed, this has been “John Wooden Quote Week” at RotoGuru.net. I could probably easily extend this into a “John Wooden Quote Month” if I wanted to, but I think I’ll stop here. Lots of good stuff.

Thank you for all the Wooden quotes. Haven't been a big follower of his, but I think I'm going to pick up a book or three now.

Yeah, I've found many that are really good. I'm thinking that perhaps Guru is on to something here. Perhaps he can give us a couple weeks of a quote from a different personality. Might I suggest quotes of Yogi Berra next? |
Here's my favorite Yogi-ism:
I wish I had an answer to that because I'm tired of answering that question.
Makes me laugh every time.
