"God is real. I saw him today and he said come back later."
US hurdler Lolo Jones was involved in a bobsled crash this week, but divine inspiration meant she made it through unscathed. Luckily God is doing the important stuff like looking out for US athletes. As a sidebar, at least 420 people were killed in a typhoon in the Philippines this week.

"I felt like jumping off the couch, flying to Perth and grabbing the ball."
Shane Warne wasn't impressed with Australia's bowling effort in the second innings in Perth and mentioned he may be available for the upcoming Ashes series, but later in the week he changed his mind.

"If I was Sidds, I would have been blowing up."
Brett Lee thinks Australia's bowler rotation policy was to blame for the result in the Third Test against South Africa.

"(It) just goes to show that when you are playing for Australia, you have to make the most of the chances you get."
Ricky Ponting feels that two Tests gave Rob Quiney plenty of time to prove himself.

"For every elite dual talent … who chose cricket over football, there are 10-12 others who take the AFL pathway."
Cricket Victoria general manager Shaun Graf offers his explanation as to why there were so few cricketers knocking down the door to take Ricky Ponting's spot in the Test team.

"Everyone is pretty keen to prove themselves to Mick."
Carlton midfielder Brock McLean says pre-season training has taken on a new dimension with new coach Michael Malthouse on board.

"We expect Jack to be able to begin his running program in January."
Melbourne assistant coach Josh Mahoney breaks the bad news that co-captain Jack Trengove will miss six weeks of his pre-season training with the early onset of a stress fracture in his foot.

"They (should) change the laws so they can give somebody a little bit of justice on a Monday."
Mark Bosnich thinks the A-League's match review panel needs to be able to consider incidents that were already dealt with on the field after Sydney FC's Fabio escaped penalty for a dangerous tackle on Melbourne Heart winger Ben Garuccio.

"I hope for his sake he grows up pretty quick."
Sam Stosur offers some advice to troubled tennis star Bernard Tomic.

"They (Alcopop and Sea Siren) came up on the plane together and they have become good friends."
Alcopop trainer Jake Stephens says his gelding developed a fondness for travelling mate Sea Siren on the trip to Hong Kong to compete for the Hong Kong Cup on Sunday.
