It’s easy to sit in the press box and say, ‘Hey, they should run the ball.’ Come down and stand on the sideline with me and make decisions. You should run it here, you should pass it here, let’s throw a screen here, let’s get the quarterback out of the pocket right here.

A lot of guys I know are into this whole scarf trend. Not my thing. I prefer to update and personalize my style with the smaller things, like a pocket square or, again, with the shoes. All in the details.
I look for a sense of reality with everything I did. I didn’t work in a studio, I didn’t light anything. I found a way of working which pleased me because I didn’t have to frighten people with heavy equipment. It was that little black box and me and ВЈ5 worth of film in my pocket or maybe it was only ВЈ2 in those days.

As a coach, they would love to sit there and say, ‘It’s going to be five steps, you’re going to hitch up into a perfect pocket, you’re going to look at number one – no; you’re going to go to number two – no.’ It doesn’t work that way.

For me, the Parc was a place where I came when I had pocket money!
Folks can’t carry around money in their pocket. They’ve got to go to an ATM machine, and they’ve got to pay a few dollars to get their own dollars out of the machine. Who ever thought you’d pay cash to get cash? That’s where we’ve gotten to.

It’s a part of my game, something I’ve done since I was a little kid. Whenever I have an opportunity to do it, I feel comfortable outside the pocket. Big plays happen that way.
I haven’t changed, but public life has. It used to be you’d go into a restaurant, and the owner would say, ‘Do you mind if I take a picture of you and put it on my wall?’ Sweet and simple. Now, everyone has a camera in their pocket.
The pocket square, properly contrived, finishes a man’s look. With good tailoring and well chosen neckwear, the look connotes power, taste, refinement, manners. The naked pocket connotes the opposite: working class, tasteless, base, crude, ignorant.
Many, many years ago, when you named alternates, and they wouldn’t travel with you – I think you’re dealing with a small roster. Now you travel with these alternates, which you can replace at any time, obviously, if it’s a medical situation, so you have it in your back pocket.
Growing up on a farm, I saw that if I didn’t go to the military or go to school, and I knew my mom and my family wasn’t going to be able to send me to school out of their pocket, so it basically came down to athletics.

You can’t get anymore classic than being a part of a Disney animated film. To me, that’s something I can have in my back pocket for the rest of my life. I’ll be able to show it to my kids. I’ll be walking around Disneyland, and it’ll be bizarre to shake hands with Rapunzel.
If I’m a busboy in Philadelphia, then I have to be careful about what I say. But if I’m a public tycoon like Jerry Seinfeld, and I got a billion dollars in my pocket, he’s got to be nuts to wonder or worry about what people are going to think.

I used to soak my mitts in a bucket of water for about two days. Then I’d put a couple of baseballs in the pocket and wrap it up with a rubber band. Today you don’t have to do that, because catchers’ mitts are more like first baseman’s gloves.
We are, after all, a nation of laws. And we live in a culture where carrying a form of identification is as normal as keeping your car keys in your pocket. When any of us walk into a grocery store and cashes a check, no one skips a beat when asked to present our driver’s license.

I use a portable pocket ultrasound device instead of a stethoscope to listen to the heart, and I share it with the patient in real time. ‘Look at your valve, look at your heart-muscle strength.’ So they’re looking at it with me. Normally a patient is tested by an ultrasonographer who is not allowed to tell them anything.

It took 24 years for me to harness my autistic traits into something useful, and I have grown to regard them as a kind of superpower. Cooking, to me, is akin to algebra, and my mind a pocket calculator.
Me and my mate used to go across the park, jump on the Met line to get the Tube into Harrow. There was a sports shop we always used to go into, and there was a McDonald’s. We used to go off with three or four quid in our pocket. That would cover our train fare, mooching around Harrow, and going to McDonald’s.
I work on my novels wherever I have a PC, and I have four or five places around the world where I do have a PC. These days you can just slip a little flash drive into your top pocket, fly for 12 hours, come to another place, plug it into a computer and you are away again.

I have occasionally – if ever I do interviews that are difficult or nerve-wracking – I take my wife’s dog tags and have them in my pocket because it’s a very quick way to realize that what I’m doing is not that important. It’s not really worth getting stressed about because it’s not, you know, war.
Equipment sellers can pocket more than $2,500 every time they send a powered wheelchair to a patient and bill Medicare.
Chemistry is really about two people who like to act together, I think. It’s like tennis in the most cliched way.

Thanks to health reform, women across the country with private insurance can get birth control without paying out of pocket. This lets women make the health care decisions that are right for them and puts every one of us in charge of our own reproductive health.
The way Michael Vick uses his legs and is able to throw out of the pocket really changes games. The way that Aaron Rodgers is able to sit in the pocket and make throws that not a lot of people can make – I hope I can be half what those guys are and emulate it into my game.
Even when I got в‚№500 a month as pocket money, I would never spend all of it. It’s the same now. I am just conscious of the fact that I wasn’t born with a silver spoon.
I don’t see how a lowering of VAT helps much, in terms of stimulus. VAT is a form of sales tax. It gets paid when you spend. A stimulus should put money in your pocket before you have actually spent the money.
I’m a rude person. But men are hunters. We look. We like. We approach. Women don’t like the fact I do it with a swagger. They don’t like me walking into the room like I got a million dollars in my pocket, when I ain’t. But as a boxer you need that swagger.
It’s really cool having the news in your pocket.
Over the tops of it, beginning to dusk under a young white moon, trailed a wavering ghost of smoke, and at the end of it I came upon the Pocket Hunter making a dry camp in the friendly scrub.

When you’re in a pocket with low vaccination rates, that’s when you find yourself at greater risk of getting measles.
If you’re able to put your knee on someone’s neck for 8 minutes and 46 seconds, you have no heart. You have no pulse. If you can smile and put your hands in your pocket and the ones that are around you that didn’t do anything, are not human either.
