If you’ve been reading the blog or following Team Colors By Carrie on social media, you already know how much I LOVE quotes.  Many of you would agree that words can be very inspiring, so today I’m taking a break from team spirit crafts and DIYs, and sharing some of my favorite sports quotes of all time.

But first I have to make a little confession.  I know the title says top 25, but that’s a little misleading, and I’ll let you in on a secret.  I couldn’t pick just 25! So I’m actually going to share my top 50, starting with 25 today and coming back next week with the remaining 25.  I hope you don’t mind!

Here are the first 25, in random order:

That’s today’s 25!  Do you have a favorite so far?  Or maybe a favorite that I haven’t shared yet?  Comment below and let me know!
