JIMY WILLIAMS QUOTES :
The Boston Globe coined the phrase "Jimywocky" to describe Jimy's unique quotes.
"Baseball is a warm-weather sport. Thats why its played in the summer."
"One of the longest singles I've ever seen. But what do we have here? I'm a guy who wears glasses just to read."
"I don't know anything about that, surprise, or all those other adjectives, or what do you use, adverbs? Prepositions? I like gerunds. I went to high school with a guy named Gerand Thornquist. His dad drove a bus for Greyhound. He was almost the valedictorian. You'd have to be with a name like that."
"I guess, you know, when I was a little kid, I liked to play marbles. You know, everybody has different games they like to play. I liked to play marbles. A lot of you people think I've lost mine, I don't know. I still got them at home in a big brandy snifter. I really do."
"A great game, isn't it? Wow. I don't know if I chose baseball or it chose me.
