So I started making a list comparing my favorite sport, baseball, against hockey.
Baseball -- Southerners, Latin Americans, and the Japanese.
Hockey -- Canadians, Eastern Europeans, and the occasional kid from New England or the upper Midwest.
Baseball -- People with crewcuts and old Jewish men.
Hockey -- People with mullets.
Baseball -- A lot of country, with a little rap and salsa thrown in.
Hockey -- Rock N' Roll.
Baseball -- Ideally, warm and sunny on a Sunday afternoon, but mostly hot and humid on a weekday night. And then there are rain delays . . . .
Hockey -- Cold. Earmuffs would have been nice.
Baseball -- Leisurely.
Hockey -- Frenetic.
The resolution of a tie game:
Baseball -- Extra innings.
Hockey -- 4-on-4 overtime, and if that doesn't work, a dramatic shootout.
Somehow, I think hockey wins.
