Jane Austen’s Baseball

Mike, Sports, TV No Comment

In this week’s Tip of the Cap/Wag of the Finger on The Colbert Report he wagged his finger at a British reporter who claimed that baseball originated in Britain after finding the term used in a Jane Austen novel. Stephen explains why this is not possible and explains what Jane Austen’s version of baseball would be like.

The baseball part starts at 1:42, but the rest of it is great as well.
