"Aw, how could he (Jorge Orta) lose the ball in the sun, he's from Mexico."

"Booze, broads, and bullshit. If you got all that, what else do you need?"

"Hello again, everybody. It's a bee-yooo-tiful day for baseball."

"Holy cow!"

"I figure I had no business being here this long anyway, so what do you care how old I am? I've been on borrowed time for years. You know my old saying: live it up, the meter's running. I've always said that if you don't have fun while you're here, then it's your fault. You only get to do this once."

Once upon a time, all kids wanted to be baseball players, but nowadays a young kid dreams about playing basketball or football and making millions. I think it's great to see a man (Michael Jordan) who has reached the pinnacle of his career, and now he wants to go back and do what he wanted to do as a kid - play baseball."

"They (Expos fans) discovered 'boo' is pronounced the same in French as it is in English."

"This has been the remarkable thing about the fans in Chicago, they keep drawing an average of a million-three a year, and, when the season's over and they've won their usual seventy-one games, you feel that those fans deserve a medal."

"You could tell he (President Ronald Reagan) was an old radio guy. He never once looked at the television monitor."

Quotes About Harry Caray

"I have observed that, generally speaking, network sports announcers did not tend to live to a ripe old age. On the other hand, I had noticed that baseball announcers seemed to go right on forever. Bob Elson has been calling balls and strikes since the beginning of time. Harry Caray must have started with Abner Doubleday, and was still going strong." - Lindsey Nelson

"In Chicago, Harry was a larger-than-life symbol of baseball and like all Chicagoans, I valued him not only for his contributions to the game but also his love and zest for life. Nobody could sing 'Take Me Out to the Ball Game' like he could. And I hope he's doing a seventh-inning rendition in heaven." - Hillary Clinton

"On team flights, he liked to read or talk about everything from baseball to world events. I like this shot of him because it shows a pensive and quiet side that most people don't associate with Harry." - Steve Green

"There's no person alive who got his money's worth better than my old man." - Skip Caray
