Quote of the Day - 01.15.09

ERIC HOLDER: Senator Kohl, he’s ten years younger than me. He plays a lot more frequently than I do. Having said that, I got a New York City game. I come from the city that produced Condy Hawkins (?), Kareem Abdul Jabar, Nate “Tiny” Archibald. I learned how to play ball in PS 127 in Queens. if you give me a little time and a little space to get back in shape, I think I could hang with him. I don’t think I’m ever going to be in a position to beat him, nor do I think that would be a wise thing to do.

  1. Connie Hawkins.

    Someday, you should read Foul. I still see copies of this kicking around at used book sales. One of the best sports biographies I read as a kid.

    I only got to see him play a couple of times, right at the end of his career. What might have been.

  2. Oops. Originally came over hear to say how much I liked that clip!

  3. oops, my bad. i know who connie hawkins is. i'd copied yglesias' quote exactly. i'll look for foul, though.
