It's a round ball and a round bat, and you got to hit it square.
Most ball games are lost, not won.
In 1962, my injury wasn't because of violence; I just kicked the ball and it happened. And that was OK because Brazil won; I didn't have any difficulty in accepting that. I still got a medal because I'd played two games.
To take a few nouns, and a few pronouns, and adverbs and adjectives, and put them together, ball them up, and throw them against the wall to make them bounce. That's what Norman Mailer did. That's what James Baldwin did, and Joan Didion did, and that's what I do - that's what I mean to do.
I've got a pen and I've got a phone - and I can use that pen to sign executive orders and take executive actions and administrative actions that move the ball forward.

I do think there are some great female comics: Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph. They're the whole ball of wax.
I like anime, but one of my favorite animes, and one of the most popular animes out there - Dragon Ball Z. That's the one that I watch the most. I don't watch all the crazy stuff like Bleach, One Piece.

I was an ambidextrous child, and the symmetry of roller skating was a welcome respite from my awkwardness with physical activities that involved a ball or a racket.
The baby boomers have dropped the ball on their burden of responsibility.
I hate running. Only if I have to, but my job is to get the ball to the receivers, the tight ends, running backs.
When I was 11 I had to umpire a game. I got hit in the head and got knocked out. The ball was hit straight back, hit the bail and knocked my head.
Fortunately, it doesn't seem to have made a lot of difference to my audience that I'm as bald as a billiard ball!
The furthest I have even thrown the ball was 85 yards. But I had a little wind at my back, so I don't claim that one.
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 can remember when, as a beginner, I was delighted with any ball as long as it would bounce.
I can't speak for the future. I have no crystal ball.
