    Default Guess That Sports Quote

    Similar to the other guessing threads, this one challenges you to name the sports figure who said the quoted line. It could be an athlete, coach, commentator, etc. Could be current, or historic.

    Whoever guess correctly within a day gets to post the next quote.

    To make the quote itself stand out from general discussion, please use bold text for it.

    I'll begin....

    "Nice guys finish last."

    Correcto, although I believe he credits Woody Hayes for it.

    It sounds like Casey Stengel, but he retired before the playoff era. He would have said World Series.

    John McKay of Tampa Bay, who held many coaching records for futility.

    He had a better line. When asked what he thought of his team's execution, he said "I'm all for it".
