George mentions that one change in basketball he would like is if the ball goes into the basket off another guy's head, it would be 25 points. About a decade later, MTV Rock n Jock Basketball would have a 25 point basket come out in the final 1 or 2 minutes, but it would be up about 20 feet in the air, and did not require the ball to bounce off another player.

In his skit on how to change certain sports, he suggests if the pitcher hit the batter with the ball, the batter would be out, then suggests the game would be over if two pitchers hit 27 batters in a row. He conveniently forgets that in his famous "baseball and football" skit that he mentions the fact that baseball has no time limit, therefore, the game would not end after hitting the 27th batter. It would just keep going on and on and on. See more »
Lacrosse? Lacrosse is *not* a sport, it's a faggot college activity. Sorry about that... that's right... Any time you're standing in a field with a stick with a net on the end of it, you're engaged in a faggot college activity.

I remember the day George Cerlin died. I had no idea who he was, but I remember HBO airing every one of his specials for a week, and this was the first one I saw. I had never seen a comedian with such energy, such timing, such a way with words. It's not his best performance, mostly because I know all the jokes, but this had a profound effect on my sense of humor. I don't know where my sense of humor would be without George Carlin. A great show, with lots of laughs, and it still holds up to this day.
R.I.P. George Carlin
