John Thompson Quotes
He didn't say, 'I'm going to kick down this wall. I've heard him talk about it, and he was honest about what he did. He said, 'I'm going to win this championship, and this is what I've got to play with.' He wasn't even thinking about anything else, but they never listened to him. So he's not the one perpetuating the lie. We all are. It's crazy.

I'd like to sit and talk to him between innings when I'm pitching. It keeps my mind off the game a little. Most of the time, I like to talk not about the game, but something else. The last couple years it was a little hard because Leo wasn't like that. He's really into the game. So I'd talk to whoever sat next to me. We'd talk about anything.
