    Sports Quotes of the Day

    Use this thread to post the best and most inspirational sports quotes that were said throughout history. Sports are programmed into our brain from childhood to old age. Competition, winning, losing, comradery, coaching, playing, manging.....sports are peoples' lives!

    Here's my favorite sports quotes to get this party started:

    “The only way to prove that you’re a good sport is to lose.” – Ernie Banks

    “When you’re riding, only the race in which you’re riding is important.” – Bill Shoemaker

    “Age is no barrier. It’s a limitation you put on your mind.” – Jackie Joyner-Kersee

    “A trophy carries dust. Memories last forever.” – Mary Lou Retton

    “Most people give up just when they’re about to achieve success. They quit on the one yard line. They give up at the last minute of the game one foot from a winning touchdown.” – Ross Perot

    “There may be people that have more talent than you, but theres no excuse for anyone to work harder than you do.” – Derek Jeter

    “Baseball is the only field of endeavor where a man can succeed three times out of ten and be considered a good performer.” – Ted Williams

    My favorite sports quote is from Wayne Gretzky:

    "You miss 100% of the shots you never (don't) take!"

    People don't play sports because its fun. Ask any athlete, most of them hate it, but they couldn't imagine their life with out it. Its part of them, the love/hate relationship. Its what they live for. They live for the practices, parties, cheers, long bus rides, invitationals, countless pairs of different types of shoes, water, Gatorade, & coaches you hate but appreciate. They live for the way it feels when they beat the other team, and knowing those two extra sprints they ran in practice were worth it. They live for the way they become a family with their team, they live for the countless songs they sing in their head while training all those hours. They live for the competition, they live for the friends, the practices, the memories, the pain, its who they are. It's who we are.

    Champions aren't made in the gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them -- a desire, a dream, a vision.

    Being perfect is not about that scoreboard out there. It's not about winning. It's about you and your relationship with yourself, your family and your friends. Being perfect is about being able to look your friends in the eye and know that you didnt let them down because you told them the truth. And that truth is you did everything you could. There wasnt one more thing you could've done. Can you live in that moment as best you can, with clear eyes, and love in your heart, with joy in your heart? If you can do that gentleman - you're perfect!

    The first quote in the original quote is my favorite. I guess that really is the only way to prove that you are a good sport! The best athletes are the ones who seek out the never have to prove that :)
