I asked Darrell Royal, the coach of the Texas Longhorns, why he didn't recruit me and he said: 'Well, Walt, we took a look at you and you weren't any good.'— Walt Garrison
Interesting Darrell quotations
You might be a redneck if your wife wants to stop at the gas station to see if they've got the new Darrell Waltrip Budweiser wall clock.
My son Darrel could recite 'Straight Outta Compton' at two years old.
He loved it! You can expose your kids to anything as long as you sit there and explain it to them.
Defensive backs are the best players on the field.
But when you get an exceptional player like a Deion Sanders or a Darrell Green - these guys are fast and they have very good technique. You have to work a little harder.
I photographed Arthur Coble and his sons Milton and Darrel as they did chores, but the vicious winds made it difficult to see and breathe.
We've got the slowest 311 song ever, called 'Solar Flare,' which is a scathing political rap that [vocalist] S.A. [Martinez] puts over a really slow, heavy thing, And then there's also a really fast one called 'It's Getting OK Now,' which is [guitarist] Tim Mahoney channeling Dimebag Darrell [Abbott of Pantera].
All that's behind us. But now they want to know how it feels not to have that question asked. Now they can go along and bug Terry Labonte and Rusty Wallace and some of these other guys who haven't won it. It's definitely special to win the Daytona 500. Now when Darrell (Waltrip) and me are sitting in a rocking chair on the front porch when we're both about 70, he can't say, 'I won it and you didn't'.
Poor Darrell Hammond. What's he going to do when I leave office?
Darrell is really good in the studio.
I mean, he has a real working knowledge of how the process works, and what sounds good coming back over tape, and how the stuff works together.
Well, I had a fiddle that I really can't play, so I loaned it to Darrell.
But yeah, he's from another planet.
It was scary to be in that world of politics.
I felt uncomfortable to be in that discussion. The weird thing is, when Darrell Hammond or Will Ferrell or Dana Carvey did an impersonation of a president, no one assumed it was personal, but because Sarah Palin and I are both women and people think women are meaner to each other, everyone assumed it was personal.
there was an assumption that I was personally attacking Sarah Palin by impersonating her on TV. No one ever said it was 'mean' when Chevy Chase played Gerald Ford falling down all the time. No one ever accused Dana Carvey or Darrell Hammond or Dan Aykroyd of 'going too far' in their political impressions. You see what I'm getting at here. I am not mean and Mrs. Palin is not fragile. To imply otherwise is a disservice to us both.
