"Opera in English is, in the main, just about as sensible as baseball in Italian"
"Some say our national pastime is baseball. Not me. It's gossip"

"I was always active - I went from baseball to football. I didn't have time to work out"
"Really, it's not harder to train for them because once baseball starts you play everyday almost"

"So, baseball is probably more physical of the two mentally"
