Facts:
  • "Baseball & Football" is considered one of George Carlin's signature routines along with "Seven Words You Can Never Say On Television" and "A Place For My Stuff". (Stavro Arrgolus)
  • The words below are the original 'working' version of this bit that appear on the 1975 'An Evening With Wally Londo' album. Later versions are more creatively embellished. Also, the references to Woody Hayes and Walter Allston which date the routine terribly were removed. (Stavro Arrgolus)
  • Song Lyrics:
    Baseball and Football..

    Baseball is pastoral
    Football is technological

    Baseball is played in a park
    Football is played in a stadium

    Baseball...has no time limit
    We don't know when it's gonna happen
    Football is rigidly timed
    And it will end if we have to even go to sudden death

    Baseball has the bunt
    Football has the punt

    Baseball's object is to go home...I'm going home!
    In football, we're down in enemy territory
    Reaching for the end zone

    In football we have the block, the clip, the kick, the blitz, the bomb,
    The offense, the defense
    In baseball, we have the sacrifice

    And in baseball, you make an error
    In football, you pay a penalty

    Woody Hayes wears a baseball hat during the football game
    Can you imagine if Walter Allston wore a football helmet
    during a baseball game? They would truck him away, man.
    "Get him outta the dugout, man. Check his calendar."
    (Stavro Arrgolus)
