    Only Pete Rose is allowed to tackle the shortstop.

    Well, yes, but then you’ll be black-flagged and sent to the penalty box for three minutes, and a repeat violation will result in a red card and the other team will get some free throws out of the deal.

    Great… now I got NASCAR, hockey, soccer and basketball wrapped up in it. Hey, this would make a great Calvinball match.

    Well, they’re both boring (I assume you mean that version of ‘football’ that is played in the US, the one where the ball doesn’t get kicked, except by a designated kicker).

    This is the problem with adults supervising kids playing.

    @Jonathan Mason
    Compared to the football in which people run around for 90 minutes — and if you’re lucky — one goal might be scored.

    Go ahead and tackle someone, Calvin.
    You’ll be back to playing Calvin Ball with just Hobbes in no time!

    This won’t end well.

    I’ve always thought that Baseball would be more exciting if you could set up a 3-man-rush on the pitcher. Games wouldn’t last forever!

    Wow, the kid’s confused. Half backs never tackle. They’re the designated hitters who run from third to home and bury the catcher when he blocks the plate.

    Compared to American Football, which takes three hours to play and has about seven minutes of actual action.

    I gotta agree with Calvin this time. Sports I did not mix. The only difference between Charlie Brown and me is that Charlie Brown actually WANTED to be doing it.

    I prefer tackle golf. But I like playing baseball the old fashioned way – by the rules.

    I used to play water polo, but it got to be too expensive because the horses kept drowning.
