George Carlin 1937 - 2008

I first came across George Carlin when I was in high school. I could listen to this guy for hours, and just laugh. I found Carlin to be smart, insightful, and at times, brutally honest about the way things were in America.

His take on everything from language, ["sir could you get on the plane... hell no I won't get on the plane, I'm flying in the plane. Leave getting on the plane for the daredevils."] to values, and religion was just stuff that brought a smile to your face.

Carlin died yesterday, taking with him the seven words you can never say on television. They were featured on his Class Clown album, which I still own. Here's the story on that list.

Now I know I could post that list, but I am sure you can find it. Besides, this is a pretty family friendly blog. So instead, I thought I would post a short little routine simply titled "Baseball, Football. "

As a sports fan, I loved this piece.
