quote: The Worcester coach called in Pat and told him to take a look at this gobby bugger he'd be playing against, ... Needed taking down a peg or two. It was me. I've got rugby Tourette's syndrome, can't stop shouting. All that pent up adrenalin. I've only played against Pat once, when he was at Harlequins and me at Sale.
quote: Even though disciplined sleeping habits and the adrenalin of live radio ensures that we are very awake while on duty, there is evidence of a phenomenon called circadian desynchronosis which causes one's brain to function slowly at those times of day when it thinks it should be asleep, regardless how wide awake the body is.
quote: When you're working through the [fight] scenes, you're working on such adrenalin. And then, later, you're like, "Oh, god, my back hurts. Where did that come from?" Your entire arm can be bruised up, but you don't even think about it while you're working.
quote: As we walk back, it feels like the city is engulfing us. Adrenalin still pours through our veins. Sparks flow through to our fingers. We've still been running in the mornings, but the city's different then. It's filled with hope and with bristles of winter sunshine. In the evening, it's like it dies, waiting to be born again the next morning.
