Baseball vs. Football



George Carlin at his funniest (and without any profanity, believe it or not!).

Now I'm a Bug Red fan and all, but hey, what's up with a game called football when only special teams have players who actually play the ball with their feet and usual play is running or passing the ball with hands.

I guess "handball" was already taken. Not to mention the rest of the world calls a game where the ball is played with the feet "football".

Everybody knows baseball is participation in the mind of God at sport.

Dear PE:

Chacun à son goût, and all that.

But personally, I find baseball to be sooooo boooooring that I think it may actually be in Dante's Inferno below the "coffee break's over, back on your heads" level.

Today, we sang "Fight the Good Fight," "A Mighty Fortress" and "By All Your Saints in Warfare." The mind of God seems to be a little more footballish than basebally, at least when it comes to the Church Militant.

But I will give baseball this much: like bowling, it is a sport in which guys who smoke cigarettes, stuff their cheeks full of chewing tobacco, drink beer, and sport the abdominal appearance of late-term pregnancy can be professional athletes. That's got to be worth something.

Now before someone casts aspersions upon my sainted mother for uttering National Blasphemy: lighten up. It's a joke.

But at any rate, PE, what exactly is a Bug Red?
