Famous quote that I’m sure you’ve all heard ————

Back in the mid 40’s, famed Dodger manager Leo Durocher said, after beating the rival Giants, “Nice guys finish last”.
I was a mere slip of a lad in those days and I remember the press made a big issue of this quote. That really wasn’t exactly what Leo said but he was certainly taking a jab at the Giants.

Our guy has certainly proven that nice guys often win it all. Many can’t accept that fact but it’s true.
Clemson has a LOT of nice guys and I hope you can support them 100%. Go Tigers

And then Leo switched uniforms and beat the Dodgers in the famous 1951 playoff. But the Lip was anything but nice.
