"I'm terribly competitive when it comes to sports. I didn't know that about myself. I tore myself trying to be Steffie Graff (sic), trying to go after a (tennis) ball a few weeks ago. I'm like a bull with a red flag in front of me. This is why I didn't play sports as a kid; I wouldn't have had any friends." Singer/songwriter Sarah Mclachlan isn't always a mild-mannered balladeer.
