 Nine,  the number of innings in a baseball game
If you're on cloud nine,  it's happiness you proclaim
Everything included means you want the whole nine yards

Nine judges on the supreme court act like retards
In nine months a baby emerges from the womb
A cat has nine lives is what we assume

If you're dressed to the nines, then  you're fine
 A standard work day will usually begin at nine
All entries in this contest must have nine lines
