I'll start...

Setting:  The Buffalo Bills road to Super Bowl 27 included the greatest comeback victory in NFL history - a 32 point second half comeback against the Houston Oilers in the Wildcard round of the playoffs, using backup QB Frank Reich due to starting QB Jim Kelly being hurt…Jim Kelly recovers and starts SB27, but reinjures his knee in the 2nd Quarter and hero Frank Reich (who also was the QB who lead in the largest NCAA comeback, a 31 point variety) is called in to lead another miraculous Bill’s comeback, this time in the Super Bowl…At halftime, with the Cowboys leading the Bills 28-10, an NBC Sports reporter interviews some of the Cowboy players as they enter the locker room for halftime instructions…towards the end of the long Super Bowl halftime, Cowboys coach, Jimmy Johnson, begins to get impatient and steps out of the locker room to ask the NBC Sports reporter a question, which lead to the following exchange:

Jimmy Johnson: “When is this halftime thing over?”

Todd Christensen (NBC Sports reporter, former Raider and Super Bowl champion): “About 5:45, coach.”

Jimmy Johnson: “Okay.”

Todd Christensen: “Hey, coach, did you remind them about Houston?”

Jimmy Johnson: “We’re not Houston!”

Do not fight with one another over my banning.  I've enjoyed the time I have spent with all of you, but the time really has come for me to leave.  It is what I want.

Coming for to carry me home,
A band of angels coming after me,
Coming for to carry me home.

Swing low, sweet chariot,
Coming for to carry me home.

Cosell was great!  I hated him when he was on the air (he was very anti-Dallas), but once he retired, I realized what sports had lost.

Update reading list

The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.

I remember that. Saw it on TV. My dad and I had just arrived home from the parade and I turned on the TV. I began to walk away from the TV and heard him say that...I laughed for a good 5 minutes.

"We're sittin' here, I'm supposed to be the franchise player, and we're in here talkin' about practice. I mean, listen, we talkin' about practice. Not a game, not a game, not a game, we talkin' about practice. Not a game, not the game I go out there and die for and play every game like it's my last, not a game, we talkin' about practice, man! I mean, how silly is that? We talkin' about practice."

"I don't know any franchise players that come off the bench. I don't know any Olympian that come off the bench. I don't know any all-star that come off the bench. I don't know any former MVP that come off the bench. I don't know any 3-time scoring champion that come off the bench. I don't know any first-team all-NBA that come off the bench. Why Allen Iverson?"

After outboxing world heavyweight champion Joe Louis for twelve rounds in their first bout in 1941, light-heavyweight champion Billy Conn got a bit overconfident, and went after Louis in round 13, at which point Louis promptly knocked Conn unconscious, ending his title bid.

After the fight, Conn asked Louis: "Joe, why did you have to do that?  You could have just let me win the title.  I'd just hold on to it for six months and then I'd let you win it back."

Louis, looking quizzically at Conn, replied: "You had it for twelve rounds, and you couldn't keep it.  How the hell were you going to keep it for six months?"

This isn't as good as "PRACTICE?!, we're talkin' 'bout PRACTICE?!" or Xahar's gem that was new to me, but I like it.
