Maybe only medium rare

This may look like a sports-related post, but it's really not. Non-sportsies, stay with me on this...

Today's installment of Quotes That Almost Made Sense (a new feature!) comes to us courtesy of Ned Colletti, general manager of the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Ned is talking about the Dodgers' acquisition of pitcher Greg Maddux, who also played for the Dodgers for part of the 2006 season. Ned, take it away: "It's very rare that you get the opportunity to add a pitcher like Greg even one time, let alone twice."

Yeah, um, it doesn't seem that rare really, since you've done it twice inside of two years.

This reminds me of one of my favorite sports quotes of all time - again, I submit this is funny even if you don't give a damn about sports. While his team was in the midst of a 28-game losing streak in the 1970s, Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach John McKay was asked what he thought about his team's execution. Good answer: "I'm in favor of it."

So much useless information stored in that BIG BRAIN of yours. That being said - pretty funny quote.
