Cleats by Bill Hinds for August 25, 2002
Jerome: Thanks for bringing me to these baseball games all summer, Grampa. Man: It's my pleasure, Jerome. That's why I bought the season tickets. Jerome: Maybe I can take you to a pro soccer match sometime. Man: Soccer? Soccer's boring. There's not enough scoring. Man: Not enough action. Jerome: There's plenty of action in soccer. They run for 90 minutes, Grampa! Man: There's running in baseball! Plenty of running! You've never seen anybody run 90 feet down that first-base line like I did in my day, beatin' out the bunts for base hits! Jerome: So, in baseball they run for 90 feet, and in soccer they run for 90 minutes. Man: Dang, another home run. What's that make the score? 8-to-6? There's too much scoring in baseball these days.
