Quotable!
"I think about the cosmic snowball theory. A few million years from now the sun will burn out and lose its gravitational pull. The earth will turn into a giant snowball and be hurled through space. When that happens it won't matter if I get this guy out."
--Bill 'Spaceman' Lee, Boston Red Sox pitcher
