Austen & Baseball Redux!

baseball-batSo it continues…the question if Jane Austen really invented baseball [ see my previous post here  as well as Janeite Kelly’s comment that indeed the OED cites Austen in Northanger Abbey as first using the term “baseball” in literature.]  So all this banter can only take the usual cultural turn of appearing on Comedy Central where all things are given their just due.  Thanks to David at Random Curiosity for this link to Stephen Colbert on Jane Austen Baseball.

David also provides text, in the probable event the video shall one day disappear … it is quite good, so give it a look for your daily chuckle!
