 10.        "Sometime, Rock, when the team is up against it, when things are going wrong and the breaks       are beating the boys- tell them to go in there with all they've got and win just one for the Gipper. I           don't know where I'll be then, Rock. But I'll know about it, and I'll be happy." -George "The Gipper"     Gipp 

9.         “I want to give him the heat and announce my presence with authority!”  -Ebby Calvin        LaLoosh 

8.         “Over? Did you say "over"? Nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the                    Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no! And it ain't over    now. 'Cause when the goin' gets             tough...             the tough get goin'! Who's with me? Let's go!  -Bluto

5.         “Apollo was like my son. I raised him. And when he died a part of me died. But now you're the one.            You're the one that's gonna keep his spirit alive. You're the one that's gonna make sure that   he didn't die for nothing. Now you're gonna have to go through hell. Worse than any nightmare you ever dreamed. But in the end, I know you'll be the one standing.” – Duke 

4.         “My name is Maximus Decimus Meridius, commander of the Armies of the North, General of the    Felix Legions, loyal servant to the true emperor, Marcus Aurelius. Father to a murdered son,    husband to a murdered wife. And I will have my vengeance, in this life or             the next.” – Maximus

2.         “If you put your effort and concentration into playing to your potential, to be the best that you          can be, I don't care what the scoreboard says at the end of the game, in my book we're gonna be        winners.” –Coach Norman Dale

Quote of the Day

Quote of the day

"This is my first Mark Smith event. There have been a lot of changes in Hudson County over the last year and a half, and the most important change that has happened is that there really is unity. For the first time, we really are working together. Despite political differences. Mark and I have worked very hard to repair that. I'm really happy to be here in support of him, because I recognize that when you work together, politics becomes secondary and you really have time to focus on government, which is the most important thing." - Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop
