- Baseball'smy favorite sport.

I love it so much, and I love itfor a couple reasons.

I love it because it's old,it's slow, and nobody likes it.

I'm an only child.

I like to be alone...

with the things that I like.

I mean, this is why peopledon't like baseball.

A perfect game in baseballis when nothing happens.

I've been playing baseballon weekends.

I play on just a little team.

I love to tell people,"I've been playing baseball."

And nine times out of ten,that person will say to me,

"Don't you mean softball?"

[audience groans]Exactly, Meltdown.

Exactly.

And it is so sexist--"Don't you mean softball?"

It's like, the sexism is twofoldin that statement--

ah, a double play, if you will.

[laughter and applause]

Thank you.

When you say to someone,"Oh, don't you mean softball?"

is that people think womenare so stupid,

we don't even know what sportwe're actively playing.

Like I'm justat a driving range, going, like,

"Oh, hockey is so much fun.

Why do they fightall the time?"
