Quotes of the Week

February 2, 1998

In truth, Denver "won" the Super Bowl only because Alan Greenspan wanted it to win. Mr. Greenspan has been worried for quite a spell now that the stock market was too high . . .

Think of it: Why else would Green Bay deliberately allow Terrell Davis to walk into the end zone with the winning touchdown?

     Rodney Rothman (Staff Writer for the Late Show with David Letterman)
