Darryl Sutter vs. Yogi Berra

I think the toughest part of winning, when you have four-out-of-seven (series), is the first game. Then the second game gets tougher. Then the third game gets tougher. Then the fourth game gets tougher.

via Sutter postgame quotes (April 15) « LA Kings Insider.

The first game is the toughest, until the second game? I’m so happy Darryl Sutter is the Kings’ coach. He’s a member of an exclusive fraternity, though he has a way to go before he can compete with the Master:

  • “I’m not going to buy my kids an encyclopedia. Let them walk to school like I did.”
  • “Ninety percent of this game is half-mental.”
  • “It gets late early out there.”
  • “You’ve got to be careful if you don’t know where you’re going because you might not get there.”
  • “The game isn’t over until it’s over.”
  • “You can observe a lot just by watching.”
  • And my personal favorite: “You should always go to other people’s funerals, otherwise they won’t go to yours.”

     Nobody goes to that place, it’s too crowded.

      That’s probably my favorite Yogi-ism. Because I don’t like crowded places, and I understand the nugget of truth contained therein.
