Legendary comedian George Carlin tackles some of his favorite subjects along with his brand of comedy and humor.
George mentions that in darts the object is to reach zero. In most versions of the game, this is true, as the score starts at 301 or 501 for single player games, or 701 or 1001 for doubles, and the rules state that a player has to reach exactly zero with the score putting it to zero being a double score in order to be declared the winner. (Going past zero, reaching zero with a single or triple score, or reaching a positive score that puts reaching zero with a double impossible [like 1, 3, or 5] busts out the player, and their score resets to what it was at the end of their previous turn.)
And that seems to hold them for about a half an hour.
In his skit on how to change certain sports, he suggests in baseball that if the pitcher hit the batter with the ball, the batter would be out, then suggests the game would be over if two pitchers hit 27 batters in a row. He conveniently forgets that in his famous "baseball and football" skit that he mentions the fact that baseball has no time limit, therefore, the game would not end after hitting the 27th batter. It would just keep going on and on and on.
