Overview

If John Bartlett (Familiar Quotations) was reborn as a sportscaster his name would be Hartley Miller. You Don't Say! is a highly readable collection of more than 1,000 sports quotes that's destined to become the definitive source of the funniest and most quotable things ever said by, for, or about sports men, women, owners, fans, coaches, and teams.

British Columbia sportscaster Hartley Miller began collecting sports quotes 20 years ago as his calling card to conclude each sportscast. What resulted is a compilation of more than 2,000 enlightening and entertaining quotes and quips that have delighted fans throughout North America for years. You Don't Say! presents over 1,000 of these selected quotations in one of the funniest and most illuminating sports books to ever roll off the court or field.

The book includes such quotables as:

• "I'm always suspicious of guys who've got a famous father." —George W. Bush, speaking to Diamondbacks GM Joe Garagiola Jr. when the 2001 World Series champs visited the White House.

* "I didn't even know Elvis was from Memphis. I thought he was from Tennessee." —Memphis Grizzlies draft pick Drew Gooden, on whether he planned to visit Graceland.

Miller did a winning job of capturing both the breadth of the sporting world and the appropriate context of the individual quotes and quips. Time after time, he explains the people and circumstances behind the quotations, which often results in the most humorous part of the item. From "Freudian Quips" and "Bad Boys, Bad Boys" to "Coach Approach" and "Yogi-isms" this book will make fans howl with delight.

Meet the Author

Hartley Miller has called sports in central British Columbia for more than a quarter century, covering many provincial and national events in hockey, baseball, track and field, basketball, and a host of other sports. While working as sports director for two Prince George radio stations, Hartley added his "Quote of the Day" feature to the end of every program. The "kicker" became his trademark throughout B.C. and the rest of North America.
