They Said It On Glenn Clark Radio: June 2017

June 15, 2017
John Tillman, Frank Deford, Jacoby Jones, Buster Olney and Sal Sinatra chimed in on Glenn Clark Radio this month.

"Sometimes your heart gets broken. At some point, you've got to get off the mat, dust yourself off and keep going. And that's what I'm so proud of with this group, is after last year's [14-13 overtime] heartbreak [in the NCAA championship game against North Carolina], we could've let that bother us again this year and really take our focus, and maybe our drive, because guys really didn't want to get crushed again. That could've happened again, but I'm really proud of the guys for just basically pulling their heart back into it again.”
- Maryland men's lacrosse head coach John Tillman May 30 on winning the school's first national championship since 1975

"I've certainly heard that and understand it as a matter of fact. I don't necessarily like it. But when you've got an old, creaky place like Pimlico is and it's not drawing any crowds -- of course horse racing is fading -- if you ever go to Belmont, which I think is the largest track in North America, you'll see a few hundred people huddled together in this huge … 40,000 seat stadium, you know that horse racing is in trouble. ... I guess the Preakness is the only thing that's holding Pimlico together right now. That they would have already gone the way of Bowie, [Md.,] if it wasn't for the Preakness. I don't want to see it go to Santa Anita, [Calif.,] right? And so if it has to go to Laurel [Park], life moves on. It's taking it away from Baltimore, but it's not taking it away from the Baltimore area.”
- Baltimore native/former Sports Illustrated columnist Frank Deford May 15 on the possiblilty of the Preakness leaving Pimlico in his presumed final interview before he died May 28

"I probably would have been in the stands somewhere. Like literally jumped in the stands, crawled in the stands. No telling what I would have done. I would have got creative, trust me. At least they're trying to bring the fun back to the game. There was a point they got so strict on us that people weren't having fun no more, there were all these crazy rules.”
- Former Ravens wide receiver/kick returner Jacoby Jones May 25 on what he might have done if the NFL had relaxed its celebration rules while he was still in the league 

"I have no indication that that is a conversation that they've dug into. To the degree that I worry about it for the Orioles, that [third baseman Manny] Machado and [All-Star closer Zach] Britton are going to wind up leaving as free agents with them not exploiting their value. Because it's a conversation they should be having right now as they prepare to go to the trade deadline. To talk about -- is this the time you flip Manny Machado before July 31 if the Orioles drift backward -- to get as much value in return, to have him impact two pennant races for an acquiring team. Because I think there's no chance they re-sign him before he goes to another team.” 
- ESPN reporter/analyst Buster Olney May 23 on the future of Orioles third baseman Manny Machado

"My message [to Baltimoreans] is that we're working to get Baltimore a premier event at a premier facility. And we hope that it's here in Baltimore. And hope it all works out. If it doesn't for some unforeseen reason, we will make sure that Baltimore has something in its place that's worth losing it.”
- Maryland Jockey Club president Sal Sinatra May 22 on the long-term future of the Preakness
