George Carlin: Baseball vs. Football
I’d like to say many profound things about George Carlin. But I don’t have the ability with words that he possessed. Let’s just say I thought he was funny. And that there was an intelligence and wit in his humor found in his work that many comics can never match.

And though I later heard the infamous seven words routine, and though I later heard him pontificate on politics and religion and the general absurdities of life, it was always, and will always be, baseball vs. football for which I remember him.

Rest in peace. – John Royal
