Quote Of The Day
“She said, ‘My Dad wants me to tell you something Billy. My Daddy beat you one year before the Olympic Games and told you ‘more speed.’ At the Olympic Games when you beat him, my Daddy said ‘too much speed’ but my Daddy wants me to tell you this. He was so, so happy when you won the gold medal in 1964. My Daddy told me you’re an American Indian, and you were like an arrow being shot out of a bow … woooo! You go by my Daddy and you win and he was so happy. My Daddy said the way you won, it was so powerful (that) he knew that moment was yours. That was your moment.'”
