Baseball vs. Football

During these months where there's no sports to talk about besides that terrible one played on a diamond in a park, I give you the late great George Carlin.

"And finally the objectives of the two games are totally different. In football, the object is for the quarterback, otherwise known as the field general, to be on target with his aerial assault, riddling the defense by hitting his receivers with deadly accuracy, in spite of the blitz, even if he has to use the shotgun. With short bullet passes and long bombs, he marches his troops into enemy territory, balancing this aerial assault with a sustained ground attack which punches holes in the forward wall of the enemy's defensive line. In baseball, the object is to go home! And to be safe! I hope I'll be safe at home!"
-George Denis Patrick Carlin, 1937-2008

My name is Seth and I write an Ole Miss Blog (The Hotty Toddy Blog, I've written several blogs on how other universities and fans perceive Ole Miss and the SEC. In many cases stereotypes and ill will prevailed. Most people do not have a good impression of the SEC as many people in the SEC do not have a high impression of other conferences.

Ok, so why am I bothering you? I would like to start a blog organization that promotes education and good will between the conferences. How, you ask? Our blog organization, to be named something like "Good Sportsman College Sports Bloggers", would have blog swaps, polls, did you know articles and other activities that would help educate and foster good.

I have tagged your blogs as bloggers who might be interested in joining this organization. If you are interested, please respond to this email and let me know. Once everyone who is interested has replied a new note with more information will be sent.

Thanks for your time.

The Hotty Toddy Blog

PS. I added your blog to my hotty toddy blog links, feel free to add the Hotty Toddy Blog to your links
