My new favorite sports quote and possibly the most dubious sports statistic ever or at least in the top ten
Li Weifeng, team captain for the Chinese soccer team: “We play soccer like the Brazilians play Ping-Pong.”
Dubious sports statistic department: Attempting to verify the Gaetti quote, I came across his wiki page: He currently is the all-time home run king of players that homered in their first Major League at bat.
This is scary and kinda cute: The Gary Gaetti Cult, because for a couple years there in the 80s, he was one of the best third basemen in the game. The Columnist Mike Nadel also has the quote. Even if I wanted to go to the Mpls Star-Tribune for an article their database only goes back to 1986.
