Gordie-ism:" This isn't just war,this is the worst kind of war,this is organized war."
submitted by Mark Moral
I remember vividly the locker room scene in 1978, My senior year,after we had just beat Joliet East 22-0. It was the Friday night before the Lockport game,and after Gordie finished his game recap he said that Lockport was going to be a tough game and that we would hold a practice on Sunday night.
Well Sunday morning, all the papers came out with a quote from the Lockport coach referring to the JCA/Lockport game"Next Friday's game with Joliet Catholic is going to be war!!" Gordie sat the entire team down and asked if we had read the papers, He started to get fired-up like only Gordie can,he finished his pep-talk with one of his most memorable quotes of all time"This isn't just war,this is the worst kind of war,this is organized war"
