Items removed from the disambiguation page[edit]

Um, I don't understand the reason why that would be removed. It's every bit as valid an association as the one with testicles. - IstvanWolf 17:17, 16 March 2006 (UTC)

Ball is also another body part... —Preceding unsigned comment added by Do da do da do da (talkcontribs) 20:13, 23 March 2009 (UTC)

Flight[edit]

I hear "ball" used in the context of flight. Notably when a pilot is landing a plane. I assume it means "they have the runway" or something. Can anyone explain this or confirm I'm not a loon. Latter is a hard task, so how about confirm that it's a real usage? :) Cburnett 07:19, 15 January 2007 (UTC)

I remember the phrase "I have the ball" from Top Gun, and guess what: I have the ball means that a pilot is set up on the proper glide path for a carrier landing. I'n not sure we could make an article out of this. Josh Parris 23:22, 15 January 2007 (UTC)
Is that encyclopaedic, or just a definition? /wangi 23:25, 15 January 2007 (UTC)
My point exactly. I'm sure someone with a deep knowledge and deep love for the subject could work something up, but, really, who cares? Josh Parris 23:33, 15 January 2007 (UTC)
I would read an article on what it means and how it came to be. Historical context, etc. Doubt I'd author it, but I'd definitely read it. Cburnett 23:48, 15 January 2007 (UTC)

Balls: courage[edit]

Ball (Party)[edit]

Why isn't there a part on here about Ball (Party)?

A Ball is something you have in school.

Like, My school is gonna "Have a Ball".

I think that's the ball (dance) listed in the "Other uses" section. DMacks (talk) 04:14, 10 February 2011 (UTC)
