Quotent Hittables

by Armen

It must be baseball season. How do I deduce that you ask? Well, Kozinski public enemy no. 1 Howard Bashman is writing War and Peace-length blog posts about the Phillies. Speaking of the Phillies, my fellow Bruin and current Phillie Chase Utley has picked up his game--giving me much needed numbers for our fantasy league at Boalt. And speaking of the fantasy league, as soon to be lawyers, we have referred a dispute between two members to a neutral arbitrator. To quote the arbitrator: "When I apply for a clerkship, this arbitration ruling will be in my application packet." Yes indeed, even in the legal world, baseball is in full swing.

What quote do I have in mind to capture the passion that is spring baseball? Well you don't know me very well if you can't guess that it's something straight from The Simpsons softball episode ("Homer at Bat", season 3). In that episode, Mr. Burns hires some ringers from the major leagues to play for his beloved power plant's softball team. The episode concludes with a parody song to the tune of "Talking Baseball."

Well Mr. Burns had done it, The power plant had won it, With Roger Clemens clucking all the while, Mike Scioscia's tragic illness made us smile, While Wade Boggs lay unconscious on the barroom tile...

We're talkin' softball...
From Maine to San Diego.
Talkin' softball...
