Your RBR Word of the Day: apothegm

apothegm \AP-uh-them\ , noun
A short, witty, and instructive saying.

As the years between actual remembrance and legend grow, memories of Coach Bryant as a grandfatherly personality that's always quick with an apothegm overshadow the tales of a hard nosed, ornery cuss with little patience for sideline reporters and second guessing commentators.
