Vintage Zorn Quotes

Vintage Zorn and vintage Largent, looking sharp.

After yesterday, my mind remains sluggish, but I believe there are two possible meanings of "Vintage Zorn Quotes."

No. 1: Top-notch Zorn quotes, like this one, from his Monday press conference, concerning Jason Taylor's blood-filled calf injury:

In the calf muscle there's really three muscles. And I'm not trying to show off and tell you I know what I'm talking about here, but there's a deeper part of the calf, it's called the Soleus, ok? And then there's two on the outer side side the gastric nemius, ok, and it was in the Gastrocnemius that he got kicked....Believe me, I started at square one. When I heard what the symptoms were and what the procedure was, I starting coming up with all my [ideas], you know, "Couldn't we just milk the blood out of there, do we have to actually go in and do a procedure."

Wow. Yum. I would expect unfiltered video of Jim Zorn milking the blood out of Jason Taylor's Gastrocnemius on Almost lunch time?

Or this one, in his visiting media teleconference last week, concerning the maroon and black:

I'm still paying for that today. I called them maroon, and we are not maroon. We are burgundy. And we are not yellow, we are gold. So that's one of the things I learned very, very quickly here - they are passionate.

Did he actually call them the maroon and black and yellow? Where did the black thing come from, anyhow? Regardless, the second meaning of "Vintage Zorn Quotes" would be "decades old quotes from Jim Zorn, about, for example, his VW, accompanied by feathered hair moving pictures."

Like this one: "I really liked my Volkswagen. I thought it was really fast. Because I like to feel like I'm racing around. Well, you can't really race around in a Volkswagen, but it sounds like you are."

You really ought to watch the video, via Shutdown Corner; Snoop endorses Zorn, and Jim Mora calls him "Jimmy."

I hope Zorn is a successful coach, because he sure is entertaining. Much more fun to have a guy who'll speak his mind than a grumpy Parcells/Belichick type.

Although, still, winning is key I suppose.

This is one of the many things that I remember about Jim that were shown in the video-driving around Seattle in his yellow VW. It brings back many great memories of Jim and his days in Seattle. Seattle is Jim's home and he is loved and admired by many there to this day. And he always will be. I look forward to the days when his career is over and he is once again living in Seattle on the shores of Lake Washington.
