George Carlin, Baseball and Football
August 29, 2011 Leave a comment
I’m currently going through all of George Carlin’s HBO stand-up specials on Netflix Instant. I just recently came across one of my favorite Carlin routines, “Baseball And Football.” In this brilliant bit, seen here in a 1990 performance, Carlin compares the over the top militarism of football with the often goofy passivity of baseball. With baseball going in to its last month and football starting its season soon, I thought it was appropriate to revisit this monologue. Enjoy.
