Baseball vs. Football



Tonight I watched a classic show on the HBO Comedy Channel, "George Carlin On Campus" from 1984. Carlin has always been one of my favorite comedians, and George is terrific in this comedy classic. He's done numerous HBO specials, and this is absolutely one of his best.

This special includes one of my favorite bits of his, about the difference between baseball and football. Great stuff, and in it football is very warlike while baseball is more pastoral. I couldn't find the actual bit from "On Campus," but I did find this from a concert he did in 1990.

This clip runs just under five minutes. Enjoy.
