100 Words about Baseball

  • Why I Love Baseball
    There is no clock
    90 feet between bases is genius
    There are secret signs
    Hanging curveballs are sexy
    Numbers are magic: 755, 56, 7, 61, 1.12
    Tinker to Evers to Chance
    Ivy at Wrigley
    The Green Monster
    The suicide squeeze
    Cracker Jack
    Walt Whitman liked it
    Jackie Robinson and Pee-Wee Reese
    It just feels American
    The seventh-inning stretch
    Guys in tight pants
    Bull Durham
    There’s no crying in baseball
    A great play at the plate
    High socks
    Spring training
    Keeping score
    The rubber game
    The infield fly rule
    162 chances

Well, at least it was all going home rather than no luggage at the conference, no transportation etc!!

Glad you made it home safely! :)

Could've been worse - the last time I flew out of IAD, I was coming from Orlando, routed through Dulles to Denver - during Spring Break & Cherry Blossom Festival - we ended up getting put up for the night at Embassy Suites and flying out next day to LAX then Denver... I saw Florida, DC, LA and Denver in less than 24 hrs...
My luggage, however, was circling the carousel at DIA for a good 20 hrs! :P


GeekMommy - I only wish I were home! That won't happen until Monday night. I'm in DC for a conference (, so today at the conference I'll be wearing yesterday's clothes, and even though they're 7 jeans, they're still jeans.

What you describe sounds like a horrible travel experience, but what a tour of some of the world's more frustrating airports. ;)


I like to think of it as my luggage has their own travel plans and itinerary. And if they coincide with where I am going, all the better. Sometimes they just want to see the world and who am I to complain? (I complained once but my luggage got cranky and things became ugly fast. Pants are only useful if both sides are connected...) Teaches me to buy sentient luggage. *sigh*

Anyway, hopefully these delays aren't the norm when you travel.
