  3. Bob Goalby:

    One guy wrote, ‘ They ought to put you and Sonny Liston in a sack of concrete and dump you in the ocean. ’ The negative-to-positive ratio was 10-to-1 negative, the letters piled up, and every one of them hurt. For some reason, I’ve kept that hate mail. I do n’t know why. Maybe to one day explain to people what the experience was like.

  4. Jimmy MacDonald:

    I remember waking up Christmas day, and there were penguins scattered in between almost every bivy sack, they were just taking the night off there, too. We’ve had Weddell seals within 15 meters (about 50 feet) of people sleeping. And you haven’t lived until you’ve heard the seals singing and making those strange burping noises. It sounds crazy spooky.

  5. Probaerb:

    When God sends flour the devil carries off the sack.
