Hockey v. Baseball

I was watching the 2nd playoff game between the Redwings (good guys) & Pens (young guys) & thinking about the differences between BB & Hockey.

In Hockey, a player has his appendix out & plays in three days (Ericsson who scored a goal) in baseball if they feel a tweak they are out 15 days.  In BB over a 3 hour game there is maybe 15 minutes of action (I don't consider the pitcher looking into the catcher or them playing catch as action); in Hockey there is action all the time.  If it is raining the BB games are delayed; Hockey players play on ice!

BB players especially the pitchers are fat & look out of shape; Hockey they are fit able to move on skates at speeds that BB players would consider dangerous.  Whenever, you listen to Hockey players they are articulate; BB players are cliche machines.

Hockey is a man's game; BB is a relaxing boring game!

All hockey players are bilingual. They know English and profanity.  Gordie Howe

Baseball is the only field of endeavor where a man can succeed three times out of ten and be considered a good performer.  Ted Williams

sport (n) 1 an activity involving physical exertion and skill in which an individual or team competes against another or others for entertainment 2 informal a person who behaves in a good or specified way in response to teasing, defeat, or a similarly trying situation
ORIGIN late Middle English (in the sense [pastime, entertainment] ): shortening of disport
