Quote of the Day


"The scoreboard can't make you a loser. If you walk off the field with your head up, you don't lose. You don't hang your head for nobody. People in the stands . . . their opinion doesn't make a difference. The only opinion that makes any difference is your own opinion of yourself."

~ Dan Marino,  Quarterback of the Miami Dolphins from 1983 - 1999
