If winning isn't everything, why do they keep score?
Chaos is the Score upon which reality is written.
On this Score, I will briefly address the re-entry of Biafra as a talking drum in our recent polity. A minister of state (Mrs. Dupe Adelaja) had the recklessness to say that Biafran soldiers cannot enjoy retirement benefits, not minding, for instance, the reality that some of them were Nigerian soldiers before the emergence of Biafra and that pardon has been granted to all ex-Biafran soldiers.chuba okadigbo
Thou hast most traitorously corrupted the youth of the realm in erecting a grammar-school; and whereas, before, our forefathers had no other books but the Score and the tally, thou hast caused printing to be used; and, contrary to the king, his crown, and dignity, thou hast built a paper-mill. It will be proved to thy face, that thou hast men about thee, that usually talk of a noun, and a verb; and such abominable words, as no Christian ear can endure to hear.
Every ball isfor methe first ball, whether my Score is 0 or 200, and I never visualize the possibility of anybody getting me out.Sir Don(ald George) Bradman
Four Score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth upon this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal. We here highly resolve that the dead shall not have died in vain; that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom; and that government of the people, by the people, and for the people, shall not perish from the earth.Abraham Lincoln
Money is how we keep the Score in motor racing nowadays.
"Excellence," besought Kai Lung, not without misgivings,"how many warriors, each having some actual existence, are there in your never-failing band?""For all purposes save those of attack and defence there are fifteen Score of the best and bravest, as their pay-sheets well attest," was the confident response. "In a strictly literal sense, however, there are no more than can be seen on a mist-enshrouded day with a resolutely closed eye."ernest bramah
I heard of your marriage, Cathy, not long since; and, while waiting in the yard below, I meditated this plan — just to have one glimpse of your face — a stare of surprise, perhaps, and pretended pleasure; afterward settle my Score with Hindley; and then prevent the law by doing execution on myself. Your welcome has put these ideas out of my mind.emily brontë
Stern is a goalscorer but did not Score for us in seven games.phil brown
If you Score first, you have a 75 per cent chance of not losing the game. It doesn't take a brain surgeon to work out that you have to get off to a good start and Score.phil brown
My goal is the same, work like last year, play hard all the time. Try and Score goals.alexander ovechkin
If you keep your opposition on their ass, they don't Score goals.fred shero
"Why not go live on the beach?" "These things are a way of keeping Score. I'm sure you have your own way of keeping Score." I nodded. "I compare the numbers of answers I get to the number of questions I ask." "And how are you doing with that?" "Lifetime average is close to a hundred per cent."lee child
Students coming from father-present families Score higher in math and science even when they come from weaker schools.warren farrell
It is of course true that any kind of judicial legislation is objectionable on the Score of the limited interests which a Court can represent, yet there are wrongs which in fact legislatures cannot be brought to take an interest in, at least not until the Courts have acted.learned hand
The thing that strikes me more and more and it strikes a lot of other people, too is the extraordinary viciousness and dishonesty of political controversy in our time.:; I don't mean merely that controversies are acrimonious.:; They ought to be that when they are on serious subjects.:; I mean that almost nobody seems to feel that an opponent deserves a fair hearing or that the objective truth matters as long as you can Score a neat debating point.george orwell
One single positive weighs more, You know, than negatives a Score.Matthew Prior
This ol' guitar taught me how to Score, Right there on that Lambda Chi porch, Mary Ann taught me a little more, About wanting what you can't have.
"Excellence," besought Kai Lung, not without misgivings,"how many warriors, each having some actual existence, are there in your never-failing band?" "For all purposes save those of attack and defence there are fifteen Score of the best and bravest, as their pay-sheets well attest," was the confident response. "In a strictly literal sense, however, there are no more than can be seen on a mist-enshrouded day with a resolutely closed eye."
Alimony, that's what made OJ crack...after paying alimony OJ didn't Score a touchdown in 20 years.
Do you imagine that the law supposed that anybody should produce four Score witnesses? Two witnesses are enough to prove any fact, if it be a good one, for by the mouth of two witnesses shall a thing be established; and 200 will not prove any fact, if it be a bad one.
