    • For the Gipper
      George "The Gipper" Gipp (1895-1920) was a famous U.S. college football player at the University of Notre Dame under coach Knute Rockne. The famous line purportedly comes from the words Gipp spoke on his deathbed and has been quoted in many arenas, including U.S. politics by former President Ronald Reagan, who played Gipp in a 1940 movie called Knute Rockne, All American. The full text from which the quote derives is:

      I've got to go, Rock. It's all right. I'm not afraid. Some time, Rock, when the team is up against it, when things are wrong and the breaks are beating the boys, ask them to go in there with all they've got and win just one for the Gipper. I don't know where I'll be then, Rock. But I'll know about it, and I'll be happy.
