The MMOB Daily Quote - Howard Cosell

Today's colorful character is Howard Cosell.

A little background pulled from the
American Sportscasters Hall of Fame:

During his nearly 40 years in broadcasting, the late Howard Cosell did more to popularize television sports than any other sportscaster in this century. Mr. Cosell is probably best known for his 13 years of expert commentary on ABC's Emmy Award winning "Monday Night Football". In 1977, he became a commentator on ABC's "Monday Night Baseball". Cosell gained worldwide recognition and fame as the voice of boxing including most of Muhammad Ali's major bouts.

And, no, I will NOT be presenting the statements that caused such a big stir when he uttered them on Monday Night Football. I guess you would now say he pulled a "Don Imus", but it's sad that such a unique broadcaster and beloved curmudgeon besmirched his own reputation.

And now, today's quotes pulled from

"Down Goes Frazier! Down Goes Frazier! Down Goes Frazier!"

"I'm just telling it like it is."

“Sports is the toy department of human life.”

“The ultimate victory in competition is derived from the inner satisfaction of knowing that you have done your best and that you have gotten the most out of what you had to give.”

“What's right isn't always popular. What's popular isn't always right.”

“Mommy, why does daddy cuss the TV and call it Howard?”

Cheers!- Jason
