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

Thanks for the recommendation - I'd been idly wondering whether it would make for a good date night at WDW. I'm kinda picky about movies particularly since movie theatre seats tend to aggravate my back/neck injury (movie has to be worth the sacrifice/pain :-) ).
Your review inspired me to check the times for the DD complex....lots of showings, including late night which should work well for us. And if Joe liked it, well, that's a selling point for Julian.


Do you have theaters at home with stadium seating? They are great for comfort -- get a seat near the back and there's no need to look up or lean back to comfortably view the screen. That said, I've never understood going to see a movie at WDW given how many other things there are to do that can't be done at home. But that's just me.

Yes, good idea. We've got stadium seating but the problem isn't looking up, it seems to be something about sitting up in one place (reclined or not), and the pressure on my injury when sitting up. Long story short, we weren't going to movies very often before my fall, and my reaction to movie seats hasn't made us any more likely to go...

I agree, going to the movies wouldn't be my first choice at WDW. But, we're not likely to be able to get away until the parks are closing or long closed anyway, and a movie seems like the least "Disneyified" way for DH to spend the evening with me. (He's isn't a Disney fan himself and even I found myself in "Disney overload" part way through our previous trip.) I'm more interested in a late dinner at a nice resort restaurant or touring a park at Extra Magic Hours, and hopefully we'll be able to do a bit of each this time.

That said, I was pleasantly surprised as how much I *did* like our movie date night last time -- we had take out at Wolfgang Puck's, strolled around DTD, and enjoyed a movie. Kinda nostalgic, too, to take a bus back 'home' to a room rather than a house, like when we were students living in dorms/residence :-)
