Movie lines new police chief can recycle

If the current Indiana resident presumed to be Spokane's new police chief gets tired of referring to planning security for a Super Bowl, he can always borrow a few lines from 1986's “Hoosiers.”

A few possibilities…

“I've seen you guys can shoot, but there's more to the game than shooting.”

“My practices aren't designed for your enjoyment.”

“I play, coach stays. He goes, I go.”

“Sun don't shine on the same dog's ass every day.”

“A man your age comes to a place like this, either he's running away from something or he has nowhere else to go.”

“I never met anybody who wanted to win as badly as I did.”

“I would hope you would support who we are. Not, who we are not.”

“Team, team, team — no one more important than the other.”

“We're way past big speech time.”

“Kick their butts.”
