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
    Superstition
    Guys in tight pants
    Bull Durham
    Centerfield
    There’s no crying in baseball
    Cooperstown
    A great play at the plate
    Chatter
    Pepper
    High socks
    Tradition
    Spring training
    Keeping score
    The rubber game
    The infield fly rule
    162 chances

Taking chances is always risking, but are also rewarding, even if we fall flat. It's always a learning lesson for sure! I felt that way with my blog and networking with new people. Twitter, Plurk and other socnets were unchartered water for sure. But the people I have met (you!) and the support everyone provides is unbelievable, smart, forgiving and humorous. It made me thankful for taking that chance and I don't regret it. Thanks Tara for reminding me to take even more chances!

You are so welcome! I'm convinced that a well-measured risk (or even not so well-measured) is more often than not worth the effort. I usually find that when I start feeling very comfortable, very "competent" or whatever, that's exactly when I need to step out on that ledge. And thanks for YOUR support!
