Quote of the Day
I did not choose necessarily on the basis of significance. If you have a vote for the most significant athlete, then you have Ali, then you have Babe Ruth, then you have Michael Jordan.
No one hit home runs the way Babe did. They were something special. They were like homing pigeons. The ball would leave the bat, pause briefly, suddenly gain its bearings, then take off for the stands.
Why shouldn't we pitch to Babe Ruth? We pitch to better hitters in the National League.
I'm a babe in the woods when it comes to the Internet.
A babe at the breast is as much pleasure as the bearing is pain.
Marion Zimmer Bradley
Oscar Charleston was the Willie Mays of his day. Nobody ever played center field better than Willie Mays.

Or there was a black guy in Atlanta who might break Babe Ruth's home run record? No.
We need just two players to be a contender. Just Babe Ruth and Sandy Koufax.

'Et Tu, Babe' was born out of my absolute certainty that a writer's life was solitary and insular, and I was happy with that. I love reading and writing; it's my whole life.
I don't want to be Babe Ruth. He was a great ballplayer. I'm not trying to replace him. The record is there and damn right I want to break it, but that isn't replacing Babe Ruth.
The Babe was a great ballplayer, sure, but Cobb was even greater. Babe could knock your brains out, but Cobb would drive you crazy.
People think of the greatest home run hitters of all time and think of Babe Ruth; they don't think about that Warren Spahn hit more than anybody.
It was funny, when I thought of it afterward, how Ruth and Gehrig looked as they stood there. The Babe must have been waiting for me to get the ball up a little so he could get his bat under it.
I was obsessed with David Bowie - still am. He's a babe, a total babe. His music is killer; his visuals are beautiful.
