Quote of the Day (P. G. Wodehouse, on a Great Rugby Player)

“Rugby football is more or less a sealed book to me, I never having gone in for it, but even I could see he was good. The lissomeness with which he moved hither and thither was most impressive, as was his homicidal ardor when doing what I believe is called tackling. Like the Canadian Mounted Police, he always got his man, and when he did so the air was vibrant with the excited cries of morticians in the audience making bids for the body.” — British humorist P. G. Wodehouse (1881-1975), Stiff Upper Lip, Jeeves (1963)
