Sydney Football

Famous quotes containing the words sydney and/or football:

    If ever there was an aviary overstocked with jays it is that Yaptown-on-the-Hudson, called New York.
    O. Henry [William Sydney Porter] (1862–1910)

    People stress the violence. That’s the smallest part of it. Football is brutal only from a distance. In the middle of it there’s a calm, a tranquility. The players accept pain. There’s a sense of order even at the end of a running play with bodies stewn everywhere. When the systems interlock, there’s a satisfaction to the game that can’t be duplicated. There’s a harmony.
    Don Delillo (b. 1926)
