Using Humour To Get Your Point Across

Whether it be in business or your personal life, there’s a lot a truth said in jest.  And the sports world epitomizes this.

Consider these beauties:

“I have discovered in 20 years of moving around the ball park, that the knowledge of the game is usually in inverse proportion to the price of the seats.”
– Bill Veeck, Chicago White Sox owner

“I won’t know until my barber tells me on Monday.”
– Knute Rockne, when asked why Notre Dame had lost a game

“I learned a long time ago that ‘minor surgery’ is when they do the operation on someone else, not you.”
– Bill Walton, Portland Trial Blazers

And my favourite:

“The only difference between me and General Custer is that Custer didn’t have to watch the game films the day after.”
– Rick Venturi, Northwestern football coach
