One disco, one soft ball game, one lost love, one gay pride rally at a time.
He who lives by the crystal ball soon learns to eat ground glass.
Some stuff I don't even put out. I'll just be home, happy, creating something for myself, and then ball it up and throw it in the trash. It's less about trying to prove something or get on somebody's list or make a fan happy or make a hater mad or convert a non-believer. That's not the case for me anymore.
Hitting the ball was easy. Running around the bases was the tough part.
I'm definitely someone who enjoys life and wakes up with a ball of energy.
I'm just a ballplayer with one ambition, and that is to give all I've got to help my ball club win. I've never played any other way.
But, at the moment, when I step on the pitch, when I have the ball I know it's mine. It's just a feeling.
See the ball; hit the ball.
My first and only experience in baseball, the coach signed me up; he didn't tell me there's a thing called the curveball. I didn't know that. So the ball's coming at me and I start backing out, and then it broke inside. And the umpire says, 'Strike one!' And I'm saying, 'How is that a strike? It almost hit me!'
There are days when I go out on the court and I feel like I can't miss a ball.
As far as I'm concerned, Aaron is the best ball player of my era. He is to baseball of the last fifteen years what Joe DiMaggio was before him. He's never received the credit he's due.
The Moon is a ball of left-over debris from a cosmic collision that took place more than four billion years ago. A Mars-sized asteroid - one of the countless planetesimals that were frantically churning our solar system into existence - hit the infant Earth, bequeathing it a very large natural satellite.
I use a lot of balance training and functional training. Basically it's where you add an element of instability to a regular exercise. So whether it's on the physioball or the Bosu ball or just balancing on one leg, I try to incorporate an instable plane and/or movement to the exercise, so the body's doing two or more movements.
I'm a playmaker, and I'm going to score. At the end of the day, my job is to put the ball in the basket.
I had 10 to 12 close buddies who I played ball with all the way from elementary to high school. That is where I learned to compete.
I think the running game is very important to every offense. Being balanced is extremely important. There's times where you have to throw the ball. You could be down late in the game, you need to come back; you have to be able to pass it when they know you're passing it.
Circulating through the children's ward and seeing terminally ill kids, heads shaved, smiling and having a ball despite the tubes and needles sticking into them, I thought: What do I have to worry about? If God takes me, at least I've lived for 35 years.
Do you agree that when there's tension and an obsession to want to hit the ball is when you hit it worst? You have to be loose.
Enrique Pena Nieto
The challenge for me has first been to see things as they are, whether a portrait, a city street, or a bouncing ball. In a word, I have tried to be objective.
The ball whizzes past like a bumblebee and the Indians are in the sea.
Navjot Singh Sidhu
Playing sport was somewhat frivolous, but I liked it. I rebelled a little bit, and wouldn't go to music lessons and things like that, but I would go and play ball. My parents learned to love it because they saw how much I got out of it.
These greens are so fast I have to hold my putter over the ball and hit it with the shadow.
But the moment I've got a ball at my feet, I'm happy.
Any defensive coordinator is worried about two things: a running quarterback and a deep ball. You know, don't get beat deep and don't let the quarterback run, because a big part of your defense can't account for the quarterback as a runner, so he gets a free run.
Bowling is all physics and energy distribution. It's F = ma. So it is actually one of the most science-y sports, because it literally is just a ball and a surface and objects to knock down.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
John F. Kennedy
