Marriage 401, Lecture 143: Beisebol has been berry berry good to me

SH: It's not "points" in baseball! It's runs!

Me: Same thing.

SH: No it's not. Soccer and hockey have goals, baseball has runs.

Me: Same thing.

SH: No.

Me: The general category of sports scoring is points. When one team plays another, the team that has more points wins.

SH: Not in tennis.

Me: It is so. Games and sets are a type of point. They roll up.

SH: You can have more points than your opponent and still lose on games in tennis.

Me: Types of points.

SH: Golf isn't scored in points and the person with the lowest score wins.

Me: Golf is a game, not a sport.

SH: A marathon isn't scored in points and the person with the lowest time wins.

Me: Race. Not a game.
