"If you have ever felt the spell of the race track and know what it means to hear the song of the bugle and to see the field go parading to the post in single file past the judges' stand, with the smell of the stable and the fragrance of the flowers tingling in your veins; if the call of the Thoroughbred is so strong that your world would be less than half a world without him in it to make you laugh and cry and pray and curse, then you understand the thrill that comes with the memory of Turf gladiators of the past, prancing idols of bygone days with their hearts of iron and muscles of steel and skins of satin. It is so with me."- Sam Hildreth and James R. Crowell, The Spell of the Turf

"From the umpire's cry of 'Play ball!' to the final out, I felt fully alive and the world made sense. Perhaps that's why, with all the craziness that had taken over the world, I clung so desperately to baseball. It was the one thing- sometimes the only thing- that I understood."- Troy Soos, Murder at Wrigley Field, pg. 26

"Maybe it's not about being the best. Maybe it's about finding the little things that get you through the day.

I guess in the end, it's about surviving anyway you can."- J.D. (Zach Braff), Scrubs- "My Super Ego"
