“If I have surgery and I have to sit out next year, I'd be done. Either he'll say this is going to heal up enough to pitch, or we're going to have to do surgery — which I don't want to do. With surgery, I have no chance and I'll miss all next year because it's a minimum of 12 months.”
“What can be said in New Year rhymes,
That's not been said a thousand times?
The new years come, the old years go,
We know we dream, we dream we know.
We rise up laughing with the light,
We lie down weeping with the night.
We hug the world until it stings,
We curse it then and sigh for wings.
We live, we love, we woo, we wed,
We wreathe our prides, we sheet our dead.
We laugh, we weep, we hope, we fear,
And that's the burden of a year.”
“We are going to begin club teams in the fall. Men's basketball and women’s volleyball... the first two sports as [IUK] moves to NAIA....We [IU Kokomo] will... follow all regulations of the NAIA to make sure that.. we will be able to apply and be in a conference. Our hope is to do one year of club and the following year to join the conference. (Feb.17, 2011)”
“There were a number of times towards the end of last year after I had some more surgery I didn't quite know whether or not I'd make it back onto the paddock, so just to be running around again is a good feeling.”
“I flew out to D.C. to see the guy who did my other surgery (on his thumb last year). It was in my best interest to have it done now. They said if there was a month or maybe two months left in the season, I'd be fine.”
“[The next big step for Barry Bonds in his return from knee surgery may be picking up a bat and hitting in the cage.] I feel great, ... I'm just doing what the Giants tell me right now. I don't want to make any predictions about the future, but I feel like I'm getting closer. The swelling is pretty stable.”
