But at [soccer] tournaments you tend to see novel, unanticipated trends coming through, with everyone watching each other like hawks and immediately copying anything new. What is really important for every team is to be aware of its own capabilities and find a style which plays to one’s own strengths.
[When asked how someone 6’3" had dared take up golf:] I was too tall to make the chess team in my high school, so I tried golf.
It’s always an honor to work with the Twins Community Fund and be a part of all the good that they do. They help people in so many ways. To be part of not only a baseball team, but being a part of something where you’re helping people who need help, that’s what life is all about really.
Imagine yourself sitting on top of a great thoroughbred horse. You sit up there and you just feel that power. That’s what it was like playing quarterback on that team [the Pittsburgh Steelers]. It was a great ride.
Bottom line is, if you turn the ball over to a team that isn’t as good, you then have brought them up to your level.
High national emotions are permissible when a soccer team is playing precisely because they are impermissible at most other times. There aren’t, simply, many other places where you can sing your national anthem until you lose your voice without causing a riot. In the context of soccer, flag-waving nationalism – even chauvinistic, anti-foreigner, flag-waving nationalism – is acceptable in Britain.
I knew it!" He pumps a fist into the air. "You’ve fallen in love with me. You want to have my babies. We’ll get a team of horses and a covered wagon and we’ll journey to South America and raise goats.
Any time you lose a few in a row, you have to hit reset and come back tomorrow and do the best you can to forget about how the past series went. It’s frustrating. Individually it’s frustrating. I’m trying to figure it out. And I know as a team, it sucks losing a few in a row any time. So you know, we’ll snap out of it.
I think I was chosen by basketball, although I never really physically got drafted to any team that I played for.
If you get depressed about being the second-best team in the world, then you’ve got a problem.
Every team that I’ve played on, I’ve either been the captain or co-captain.
My role models in the business were the older guys on my team when I first got there: Gray Scott, Adrian Smith, Roland Taylor. These were the guys who took me under their wing, and really schooled me in terms of what the business was about.
The British Fashion Awards are also very important because it’s my hometown. But it’s really a recognition of my team, and those awards give me an opportunity to thank them in a formal way. You and I have worked together enough to know that it really isn’t about two people. It’s a whole team. And so it’s great to acknowledge that you never do anything alone.
From the very start in 1969, I wanted to be a part of helping our Special Olympics athletes succeed. I wanted to be on Eunice Shirver’s team as another set of eyes, another set of hands and a heart working to be there for them, finding a way to help them be the best they can be.
The team takes on the identity of its top payers… I don’t want to take anything away from the Capitals offensively.
The Democrats continue to snipe at Bush. They’ll never give it up to him. You know Teddy Kennedy and Tom Daschle pick more nits than a father and son spider monkey team who know they’re being followed by a National Geographic film crew.
You can have a team of unconventional thinkers, as well as conventional thinkers. If you don’t have the support of others you cannot achieve anything altogether on your own. It’s like a cry in the wilderness. In each instance there were others who could see the same thing, and there were others who could not. It’s an obvious difference we see in those who you might say have a bird’s eye view, and those who have a worm’s eye view. I’ve come to realize that we all have a different mind set, we all see things differently, and that’s what the human condition is really all about.
I have an amazing team, I have amazing producers, I have amazing writers, but at the end of it, it’s me making the decisions on the writing, the tone, the editing.

First of all, I’m so glad that the city of Houston has a football team again. They have such great fans. I’m really happy for the people of Houston because they deserve a football team.
It’s interesting. I’ve known quite a few good athletes that can’t begin to play a beat on the drum set. Most team sport is about the smooth fluidity of hand-eye coordination and physical grace, where drumming is much more about splitting all those things up.
All the athletes are individuals. This isn’t a team sport. We all have our own styles, our own clothing preferences and our own way of doing things. That’s the way I do things and I’m proud of it.
But if you’re coming off ACL surgery, you don’t need to be having a press conference at OTAs. Every week? Really? It becomes a circus, a sideshow. It takes away from the focus of what those sessions are supposed to be about: the team.
