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

Mack Collier

Hey! You've got your community in MY community! Well you've stuck YOUR community in my community!

Ahem. Glad to be a part of your community ;)


Mack, I would say the pleasure is all mine, but I know you would just go and argue with me, so I'll just say thanks. :)

Beth Harte

You've covered the four best social media folks that I know! Mack, Connie, Amber and Tim have opened their minds and hearts to a lot of folks. And kicked them off in the right direction! I'll just use your post to share my gratitude as well! ;-)) I need to add you to the list too! We met on Twitter (my Chantecaille tweet), but really started chatting it up on Plurk...and I am grateful to have met you!

Frank Martin

Awesome people here, I have to agree. I am absolutely honored to call them my friends, and you as well!

Connie Reece

Tara, I'm humbled by your comments here. Thanks for including me. The quality of friends made online can be astounding, and our conversations on Plurk -- which include more than just the few people you've mentioned here -- have been richly rewarding. I have learned so much from so many smart people -- and had a ton of fun in the process. Long live social networking!


Beth - I remember the Chantecaille tweet. :) So glad to be able to get to know you, too! You are right - they're all very giving of their energy and thinking, which makes all of us better and in turn makes them better, too.

Frank - Thanks for commenting. It's a great community we're a part of, isn't it?

Connie - my TOTAL pleasure! You deserve all I said and much more that I'm simply incapable of putting into words.

Amber Naslund

Tara, I'm just tickled pink (yes, naturally) to be included on your post. And I certainly feel flattered and humbled to be included amongst the likes of Mack, Connie and Tim - people whose work I admire, and whose friendship I value so much - as I do yours. I'm so glad that Plurk has given us the chance to get to know one another, and hope it's the first of many adventures - both online and off.



Amber - tickled pink is about the best I could hope for. ;) So glad to have your friendship, too. What on earth would we do without Plurk??


I've already said this privately, but let me say publicly how enormously flattered and touched I am to be thought of so highly by you. And words can never express how absurdly lucky I am to call you my dear, dear friend. The internet is truly an amazing place.

And by the way, I noticed what you did with the sidebar. :-)


Jocelyn, thanks a million times over, but I say I'm the lucky one in this equation. :)

Tim Jackson

Ah jeez... Pinky...

Like Connie, I'll just say that I'm sincerely touched by the high praise. I feel totally unworthy of nit.

Your strength and courage are admirable- I did nothing more than affirm it for you. You had it (and have it) all along. It took me about 2 years of debating creating the poetry blog before I actually did it... so it's not like I'm *that* brave.

And as my co-conspirators said, I'm mighty lucky to be lumped into this group; I'm the ugly duckling with the swans, but I'll take it!


I just wanted to chime in here on how amazing social networking is. How I stumbled across your blog was from TED. You were blogging from the conference. When seeing that I remembered your name as one of my all time favorite Disney trip report writers. So I followed your blog. I also noticed your name from some of the blogs I follow too. It was your blog, Mack Collier's blog, Chris Brogan's blog, and Tara Hunt's blog that got me on Twitter and plurk.

I enjoy your writing style. Hope to get to know you better! (any Disney trip reports out there that you didn't post to MousePlanet?)



Cynde - you just made my day-week-month!! I am amazed at the different threads you've connected here - I really had never connected my Disney community involvement to my current sense of online community. I'm so glad TED blogging brought you here and you made all those connections AND pointed them out to me! THANK YOU! And I'm glad you are on Twitter and Plurk - looking forward to getting to know you there, too.

There might be some trip reports on the DIS boards that I didn't post to MousePlanet...and there are some Disney posts in here - at least a couple of detailed restaurant reviews of Jiko and California Grill, for sure.

Thanks again for your comment - it brought a huge smile to my face. :)
