In the passage “Baseball vs. Football” the comedian George Carlin “enjoys comparing” the two sports – football and baseball by utilizing a bias tone, diction, and syntax. Using these rhetorical devices it characterizes baseball as a more favorable sport compared to football. When talking about baseball George Carlin used syntax by using a lot of exclamation points, giving the sport an uplifting feeling when the reader reads it.

Part I: The history behind the great American sport, football, is a very important subject to me as I have played the game since I was eight. As I continued playing while getting older, leagues got more competitive and injury seemed to be more prone to some than most.
