The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It's been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt, and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game, is part of our past, Ray. It reminds us of all that once was good, and that could be again. Oh, people will come, Ray. People will most definitely come. ...

Umpire: Okay, let's go over the ground rules. You can't leave first until you chug a beer. Any man scoring has to chug a beer. You have to chug a beer at the top of all odd-numbered innings. Oh, and the fourth inning is the beer inning.

Chief Wiggum: Hey, we know how to play softball!

"The other day they asked me about mandatory drug testing. I said I believed in drug testing a long time ago. All through the sixties I tested everything."

"I just had a lot of pancakes before the ball-game in the morning, and then I went out and had a beer and a steak and uh...go get 'em."

anything Carl Everett says on dinosaurs:



* Carl Everett on dinosaurs?
"Didn't exist. God created the sun, the stars, the heavens and the earth, and then made Adam and Eve. The Bible never says anything about dinosaurs. You can't say there were dinosaurs when you never saw them. Someone actually saw Adam and Eve. No one ever saw a Tyrannosaurus rex."

* Carl Everett on the abundance of excavated dinosaur bones:
"Made by man."

* Carl Everett on the July 20, 1969 Moon landing by Neil Armstrong:
"Yeah, that could have happened. It's possible. That is something you could prove. You can't prove dinosaurs ever existed. I feel it's far-fetched."

* Carl Everett on Barry Bonds:
"I eat pieces of poop like him for breakfast."

* Carl Everett on eating pieces of poop:
"It's better than pieces of dinosaur."

* Carl Everett on dinosaurs from Maxim Magazine's July 2005 Mouth of the South Side interview:
"Nope. And that never will change. First of all, paleontologists don't believe one another on their own discoveries.—How can I believe in people who don't even believe in it themselves? And biblically, there's no mention of dinosaurs. According to the word of the Bible, Adam had dominion over all animals; according to man, dinosaurs ruled the Earth. So either God's a liar, or well, I don't believe that God's a liar."

* Carl Everett on dinosaur bones, also from Maxim:
"You can make bones in the lab nowadays. And every year they come out with a different dinosaur movie, so does that mean that that dinosaur existed? A lot of things are being made that you would never see walk on this Earth."

* Carl Everett on the reasons why nearly the entire scientific community believes dinosaurs existed, also from Maxim:
"Why would they say a lot of things that aren't real? That's the thing no one thinks for themselves. If everybody would think logically, then they would come to their own conclusions. That’s what I do."

"[Baseball] breaks your heart. It is designed to break your heart. The game begins in the spring, when everything else begins again, and it blossoms in the summer, filling the afternoons and evenings, and then as soon as the chill rains come, it stops and leaves you to face the fall all alone. You count on it, rely on it to buffer the passage of time, to keep the memory of sunshine and high skies alive, and then just when the days are all twilight, when you need it most, it stops.” -- Bart Giamatti

My honorable mention is what Willie McCovey supposedly said when asked what he'd like to be remembered for:

"I'd like to be remembered as the guy who hit the ball over Bobby Richardson's glove to win the 1962 World Series."
