And here's one of his favorites, to describe a particularly good block: "Man, he hit him so hard it knocked him into the middle of the week so he could see both Sundays."

Paul Myerberg of USA Today had a nice look at Caldwell's book of country witticisms and how they underscore a deep love for his players.
