A barber is by nature and inclination a sport. He can tell you at what exact hour the ball game is to begin, can foretell its issue without losing a stroke of the razor, and can explain the points of inferiority of all the players, as compared with the better men that he has personally seen elsewhere, with the nicety of a professional.
Clemente could field the ball in New York and throw out a guy in Pennsylvania. He was a great player and deserved a longer life.roberto clemente
In soccer, the blindest player is the one who sees nothing but the ball.nelson rodrigues
It is therefore not an exaggeration to say that if the city of New York were replaced by a ball of fire, some significant percentage of the American population would see a silver lining in the subsequent mushroom cloud, as it would suggest to them that the best thing that is ever going to happen was about to happen: the return of Christ. It should be blindingly obvious that beliefs of this sort will do little to help us create a durable future for ourselves- socially, economically, environmentally, or geopolitically.sam harris
I think football would become an even better game if someone could invent a ball that kicks back.Eric Morecambe
Logistics is the ball and chain of armored warfare.heinz guderian
I'm a rugby player, really, and I knew I was going to get to him, and when he was about two yards away I just put my head down. There was no malice. I was going for the ball with my head, which I understand is a legitimate move in soccer.Boris Johnson
The history of a battle, is not unlike the history of a ball. Some individuals may recollect all the little events of which the great result is the battle won or lost, but no individual can recollect the order in which, or the exact moment at which, they occurred, which makes all the difference as to their value or importance. ..1st duke of wellington

Here lies, bowl'd out by Death's unerring ball, A cricketer renowned, by name John Small; But though his name was small, yet great was his fame, For nobly did he play the'noble game'. His life was like his inningslong and good; Full ninety summers had Death withstood, At length the ninetieth winter camewhen (Fate Not leaving him one solitary mate) This last of Hambledonians, old John Small, Gave up his bat and ballhis leather, wax and all.
What Zidane does with a ball Maradona could do with an orange.
How little, mark! that portion of the ball, Where, faint at best, the beams of science fall.Alexander Pope

You run the football for toughness. You run the ball to tell your opponent that you're as tough as they are. But you throw the ball to ring the bell.jerry glanville
Now the pitch, and it's lined foul into the seats, down the third base line, 1 ball, 1 strike, and I'll tell you what's going on. The crowd is chanting "U-S-A!" and the reason for that is that there are reports circulating, I'm not sure if they yet been confirmed by the White House, that Osama bin Laden is dead. How that's happened, we don't know, but this crowd now knows it.howie rose
I didn't try to hit him. I just tried to make my pitch and the ball went out of my hand.carlos zambrano
Like feather bed betwixt a wall And heavy brunt of cannon ball.
Language is the net that holds thought trapped within a particular culture. But if one could only strike the ball with sufficient force, with perfect timing, it would perhaps break through the netting, continue on its course, never fall to earth, but go into orbit around the world.david lodge
A man who waits to believe in action before acting is anything you like, but he’s not a man of action. It is as if a tennis player before returning a ball stopped to think about his views of the physical and mental advantages of tennis. You must act as you breathe.Georges Clemenceau
This knowledge, so inaccessible, so formidable, the Fool, in his innocent idiocy, already possesses. While the man of reason and wisdom perceives only fragmentary and all the more unnerving images of it, the Fool bears it intact as an unbroken sphere: that crystal ball which for all others is empty is in his eyes filled with the density of an invisible knowledge.
Even though the emotion and the drama of the situation, I wasn't thinking about that. I was just thinking about ball, head, goal.
I know that the new ball is due, but I am saving it for that "Chotu" (Sachin) who is coming next.
When I dunk, I put something on it. I want the ball to hit the floor before I do.Darryl Dawkins
