10 things about hockey and baseball

From a website/blog I found. Here they are:

1. Green: baseball is played on a green field; hockey on white ice.

2. Wrigley, Fenway, Yankee Stadium: name one interesting hockey place.

3. Names: Babe Ruth, Pee Wee Reese, Ernie Banks vs. Wayne Gretzky, Gordie Howe, Bobby Orr.

4. Scoring: single, double, triple, homer vs. "It's a goal!"

5. Teeth: baseball players have them.

6. Season: summer vs. winter (and even when it's not winter they have to freeze the place to have a game).

7. Shrine: Cooperstown vs. ??? (is there such a place?)

8. Word: baseball players all wear a cup, hockey plays for one cup.

9. Instruments: bats and balls vs. sticks and pucks. Symmetry, baby, symmetry.

10. Pace: baseball plays until the boys say it's done; hockey is governed by a clock

I strongly agree with #1, 2, 4, 7, 9 & 10.

I'll be fair and call #3 a push.

I don't want to comment on #5 because I'm from the Ozarks.

#6 & 8, don't really have an opinion.

Anyone have anything to add?
