Famous quotes containing the words ball and/or musket:
“I dont like comparisons with football. Baseball is an entirely different game. You can watch a tight, well-played football game, but it isnt exciting if half the stadium is empty. The violence on the field must bounce off a lot of people. But you can go to a ball park on a quiet Tuesday afternoon with only a few thousand people in the place and thoroughly enjoy a one-sided game. Baseball has an aesthetic, intellectual appeal found in no other team sport.”
—Bowie Kuhn (b. 1926)
“McCoy: That sharks been following us ever since the surgeon died, waiting for the burial. Couldnt I have a musket to shoot it, sir?
Fletcher Christian: Take the deck, McCoy. Ill get the keys to the arms chest.
McCoy: Get two muskets, sir. Id like to shoot that shark on board.”
—Talbot Jennings (18961985)
