A leader on the pitch is someone who can turn a game in the right direction, he isn’t someone who has a go at his colleagues after the match for everything they did wrong.
If there’s no game, isn’t winning a pretty meaningless concept?
Alike and ever alike, we are on all continents in the need of love, food, clothing, work, speech, worship, sleep, games, dancing, fun. From tropics to arctics humanity live with these needs so alike, so inexorably alike.
Of all our games, love’s play is the only one which threatens to unsettle the soul.
Mother my friends are no longer my friends <br>And the games we once played have no meaning <br>I’ve gone serious and shy and they can’t figure why <br>So they’ve left me to my own daydreaming.
My career only took off because of one football game. I thought it was funny. ‘Playboy’ called and offered me a cover just like that. I turned them down initially, because I was nervous about it and my boyfriend at the time didn’t want me to do it, but they kept coming back , so I eventually said yes.
We all had, at some point, matches we should have won and we didn’t and that’s the game. That’s just the way the sport is. Otherwise, if everything was written before, we don’t need to play.
Life is for the living. Don’t let the fear of striking out let you from keep you from playing the game.
[Vestiges begins] from principles which are at variance with all sober inductive truth. The sober facts of geology shuffled, so as to play a rogue’s game; phrenology (that sinkhole of human folly and prating coxcombry); spontaneous generation; transmutation of species; and I know not what; all to be swallowed, without tasting and trying, like so much horse-physic!! Gross credulity and rank infidelity joined in unlawful marriage, and breeding a deformed progeny of unnatural conclusions!
To be honest, I’ve made a game out of trying to live through my James Dean, Janis Joplin, Freddie Prinze, Jim Morrison period, those demons that we all have that we’re either successful or not at making work for us rather than destroy us.
A good umpire is the umpire you don’t even notice. He’s there all afternoon but when the game is over, you don’t even remember his name.
If you do things with a certain type of result and cause a certain type of reaction or effect, then you increase your market value. It’s very much a competition for the entertainment dollar, and that’s never been more clearly evident than in today’s NBA game.
I grabbed 19 rebounds in my first professional game, and somehow found a way to score 20 points. I felt real good about it. I felt that this was the beginning of something good.
The first professional game that I ever played remains, to me, the most exciting moment of my professional career.
I liked the game, I enjoyed the game, and the game fed me enough, and gave me enough rewards to reinforce that this is something that I should spend time doing, and that I could possibly make a priority in my life, versus other sports.
Deceit is the game of petty spirits, and that is by nature a woman’s quality.
I’d work on my game online and at casinos, build my bankroll, find good games, and try to put myself in a position to keep winning and earn a steady income.
You get your chips your way, I’ll get my chips mine.
Coming back in that AFC Championship Game against the Steelers, that was a poignant moment for me for a lot of reasons – the magnitude of the game and having not been able to play for quite a while and to be able to get on the field for that game. That one stands out.
I feel so fortunate, so honored, to have played this game that I love for so long, with so many great players, and in front of so many wonderful fans. I fulfilled a childhood dream the first time I stepped on an NFL field, and the league did not let me down one time.
It is the best feeling in the world to have a close game come down to just a couple of plays and you are able to do it.
That’s the only reason I’m here. I don’t need to play the game for any other reason than to win a championship.
I kind of picked up the game at an early age. The way that other kids would learn what a fork or a spoon is.
The game is not over until it is.
When you look back you talk about legends of the game, he’s certainly up there. Twenty trophies since 1994. He just seems to get better and better. I’ve had the honour of playing alongside him. The four years I’ve played alongside him, he is the best player, one of the first names on the manager’s teamsheet. He is just a complete legend. There are not enough players like Paul Scholes around any more for my liking. ‘Legend’ is over-used but this guy is right up there with the very best.
Chess is a good way to learn, to keep your brain fit and the ego in check, a mental form of your local gymnasium. Those who see chess merely as a means of self-proof make the game experience uncomfortable and drive many of the better, more sensitive brains to analysis, correspondence, problems, studies and the like.
Most Americans will let liberals and conservatives play their games because most Americans don’t pay attention.
The Cowboy’s defense has more holes in it than Ronny Milsapp and Jose Feliciano after a game of lawn darts.
Somebody can say they don’t understand why somebody drifts. But I’ve always found people who drift interesting, ’cause it shows me the game’s not stagnant in their own head. They’re thinking.
I haven’t seen anyone rely on the ground game this much since the battle of Verdun.
Mammograms are really sort of a gift. You can either catch something early or count your lucky stars because nothing was discovered. Either way, you’re ahead of the game.
I’m still no good at ball-and-stick games. If I go play golf with the guys, it’s intended to be a joke.
After the game, I’m a completely different person. I drink some beers with friends and try to get my mind completely off football.
Everybody who’s ever done anything bad to me, anything that ever went wrong, I try to take it out on somebody-every game. It’s like when you see Michael Jordan’s highlights and your hair sits up on your arms? I’m like that the whole game.
Well, whether it’s on film or on TV, you don’t want to throw too many curves at your audio and video guys.
