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

I celebrate today my first anniversary as a non-smoker. In order to control my weight, I try to run 10km and swim 5km a week. I had to force myself initially but today it's really a drug. I'll reply to your next post with my own running music selection :)


Reading this made me tired. Way to go sis!!

Philippe - wow, congrats on a smoke-free year! What an amazing accomplishment!!


Thanks, sis. :)

Somehow I ended up at your blog through mutual friends on Plurk. Your campus is beautiful. I had to keep reminding myself that it was in the US and not Europe. I'm a runner I (and was a smoker until about 2 years ago) too. Great job (on running and not smoking)! I didn't start running until about 7 years ago & I'm still not very good. I'm continually amazed, however, but what my body is able to do. Keep up the good work.


Hi Betsy - thanks for dropping in! Emma Willard is a beautiful campus, not mine, but I do feel possessive about it as it's in my neighborhood and I spend a lot of important time there running. Congrats on giving up smoking and sticking to it - I can't imagine how hard that is. I gave up soda almost a year ago and that about did me in, and that must be nothing compared to cigarette addiction!

Thanks for the encouraging comments - and I'll look for you on Plurk!
