"I've just been overwhelmed with the response from people. I have a stack of e-mails that are just humbling, man. The overriding theme of [the e-mails] is that you're one of them, a friend in their living room and one of the family. The effect you have on people's lives is humbling. I was so overwhelmed by the e-mails that I brought them home to share them with my kids -- and I never do that." --Jack Harry
"I got an e-mail from this lady once and she said, 'My mailman saw you out mowing your lawn, and he said you're bald as an eagle.'" --Harry
"I'm getting a burr [haircut] July 2nd. I'm gonna shave it all off." -- Harry
"Around February  maybe I can find something if somebody wants me." --Harry, on the expiration date of his six-month noncompete agreement with KCTV Channel 5, WHB 810
"One key word really fixes two or three things." --Al Knipper, when asked what he has said to the Royals' pitchers to get them to improve, KMBZ 980
GH: My best guess on that key word -- "Omaha."
"The answer would be if you could bring the Yankees from New York and put them in Kauffman Stadium and send the Royals to New York." --John Bondon, chairman of the Jackson County Sports Complex Authority, on how to solve the Royals' woes
"If you're a Kansas State football fan, it's high time the news of Bill Snyder's revival of the program be sort of kicked to the back pages. It's no longer any big deal as far as I'm concerned. They have been a contender for the conference championship for most of the past seven years. So it's no longer appropriate in my estimation to say, 'Wow, what a job Bill Snyder's done bringing this program from where it was to what it is.' No football player or assistant coach in that program now remembers what it was in the 1980s." --Jim Rose, 980
GH: Rose, the former Lincoln, Nebraska, sports talk radio host, has made it known he is anti-Kansas State. Don Fortune used to run from the accusations from Wildcat fans that he hates the Purple, but his partner appears to relish the tag.
