I'd Like to Talk a Little Bit About Baseball and Football.

I'd like to talk a little bit about baseball and football. Starting with baseball. Baseball is different than any other sport in a lot of different little ways. For instance in most sports you score points or you score goals. In baseball you score runs. In most sports the ball or the object is put into play by the offensive team. In baseball the defense puts the ball in play and only the defensive team is allowed to touch the ball. In fact in baseball if an offensive player touches the ball intentionally he's out. Also most sports the team is run by a coach. In baseball the team is run by a manager. And only in baseball does the manager or the coach have to wear the same uniform the players do. Can you picture Bill Parcells in his New York Giants uniform? Now baseball and football are different from one another in other kind of interesting ways I think. First of all baseball is a 19th century pastoral game. Football is a 20th century technological struggle. Baseball is played on a diamond in a park. The baseball park. Football is played on a grid iron in a stadium. Sometimes called Soldier Field or War Memorial Stadium. Baseball begins in the spring the season of new life. Football begins in the fall when everything is dying. In football you wear a helmet. In baseball you wear a cap. Football is concerned with downs. "What down is it?" Baseball is concerned with ups. "Who's up? Are you up? I'm not up he's up." In football the specialist comes into kick. In baseball the specialist comes in to relieve someone. In football you receive a penalty. In baseball you make an error. "Woops!" Football has clipping, hitting,spearing blocking,piling on, late hitting, unnecessary roughness and personal fouls. Baseball has the sacrifice. Football is played in any kind of weather. Rain, sleet, snow, hail, mud. Can't read the numbers on the field, can't read the yard markers, can't read the players numbers the struggle will continue. In baseball if it rains we don't come out to play. "I can't come out to play its raining out." Baseball has a seventh inning stretch. Football has the two-minute warning. Baseball has no time limit. We don't know when it's going to end. "We might have extra innings." Football is rigidly timed and it will end even if we have to go to sudden death. In baseball in the stands there is kind of a picnic feeling. Emotions may run high or low but there's not that much unpleasantness. And football in the stands during the game you can be sure that at least 27 times you are perfectly capable of taking the life of a fellow human being. Preferably a stranger. And finally the objectives of the two games are totally different. In football the object is for the quarterback otherwise known as the field general to be on target with his aerial assault riddling the defense by hitting his receivers with deadly accuracy in spite of the blitz even if he has to use his shotgun. With short bullet passes and long bombs he marches his troops into enemy territory balancing his aerial assault with a sustained ground attack which punches holes in forward wall of the enemy's defensive line. In baseball the object is to go home and to be safe. "I hope I will be safe at home!" By George Carlin Rest in Peace
