George Carlin on Sports

I wanted to honor Carlin in some way on my blog, and it occurred to me, that the best way I could honor this man’s memory was to pass on the first routine of his that I recall, and the one that made me a life long fan.

I remember memorizing every line from this album, which I had on cassette, as a kid, and the sports bit, to my 10 year old self, was the greatest bit of comedy I had heard at that time.

Later on, as I grew up and learned more about the world, I respected Carlin not only for his humor, but his willingness to speak his mind, and make others think about themselves, and the world around them.

    one of the few human beings who used most of his brain capacity and the whole of his heart to promote comedy and rationale.
    RIP! the only true legend and the supreme master of the English language!

    Hear, hear, Aniche.

    A true wordsmith, a master of the craft. Blessed with a lack of political correctness.
