    • Homer: I'm the luckiest man in the world, now that Lou Gehrig is dead.
      Lou Gehrig was a first basemen for the New York Yankees. During his retirement speech he stated "I consider myself to be the luckiest man on the face of the Earth." His retirement was forced due to his diagnosis with ALS, or Lou Gehrig's disease, as it would be named later.
