Best Comeback Stories


#1

I won 50 dollars yesterday on a 1-1 basketball game. The game was up to 20,I fell 12-1 but caught up and won the money. It was fucking sweet.

Anybody have any great comeback stories ?? Does not have to relate to sports.

The Clown Joke

My favorite comeback in history…

Lady Astor: “Sir, if you were my husband I would flavour your coffee with poison”

Winston Churchill: “Madam, if I were your husband, I would drink it”

It is a very unique skill, cutting someone to the core without resorting to vulgarity.

Another great Churchill comeback along those lines:

Bessie Braddock: " Mr. Churchill, this is a disgrace. You are quite drunk."
Winston Churchill: “This may be well and true, but in the morning I will be sober and you will still be ugly.”

LOL, she probably wasn’t worth keeping in that case, anyway.

Unfortunately, I was on the loosing side of such a comeback. It was the third game (best of 3) in the finals of a racquet ball tournament. My saving grace is I won the B flight playing left handed. Not a bad weekend overall but it would have been really sweet to take both.

I’ve physically come back from injuries that sent me down to
168 lbs
162 lbs
and I’m now working on a comeback from 156 lbs. At 185 , if I can get my hip all the way cleared up and my shoulder a little better, I should be able to make a run at 200.
