Sporting quote of the day

Audley Harrison tells the Guardian:
Sometimes you have to take two steps back to take one forward.
How true. I think that tells you a lot about life - and certainly about Harrison's approach to boxing.

An honourable mention also goes to David Lacey, for this piece of blatant racism in his report on the Chelsea vs Wigan game:
Yet Mourinho does seem to like seeking mountains behind molehills. He said he had told William Gallas not to give the ball back to Wigan because he felt McCulloch was feigning injury. This from a native of Portugal, the country which has perfected football's version of the dying swan. Maybe Mourinho's acquaintance with English idiom has yet to embrace the pot and the kettle.

Um, I don't think it's racist to refer to someone's nationality in such a way. Xenophobic perhaps, but not racist.
