"I don't care if Pat Terrell is so wide open, you could walk up and hand him the football! Take the sack"!

I believe that's Ben Franklin.

"There is no one dumber than an educated person, when you get them in a subject that they weren't educated in."

This person is the source of many a great quote.

David Farragut, although I have to admit that I had to look up who said it first because it has been said by so many people. I won't put up another one since I had to look it up, Aloha go ahead and post another one.

No problem. I wasn't sure how hard that would have been because it was primarily a military/Navy guote. I have a ton of those. So here will be a VERY easy one.

Yes, that is an easy one, John Blutarsky. "Mr. Blutarsky, zero point zero."

"When choosing between two evils, I always like to try the one I've never tried before."

I really love Mae West and Will Rogers so those two are always a good source for my quotes. Ok, I will let someone else solve your quote and in the mean time will bask in "The only difference between death and taxes is that death doesn’t get worse every time Congress meets." - Sorry, every time I google Will Rogers quotes I laugh, he helps me get through the day!
