I believe 2 is specifically terms(nicknames) for a baseball. How is a hockey puck a horsehide?

#2 is wrong. Eclipse, Ribot and Kelso aren't breeds of horses... they are the names of three race horses... I think they were all undefeated but I'm not positive.

Maybe Merlin was thinking the puc was called pill? I thought that was basketball. Maybe he's thinking biscuit.

But the thing was what did all three have in common. So therefore the question is still how could a puck be a horsehide?

Horsehide=baseball
Pill=hockey puck (Yes, a puck can also be called a biscut, but I've heard it called a pill before. Note the similiarity in shape :) )
Apple=?

Could it have been that they are slang terms for the "balls" (including pucks) used in professional sports. That's the logic there.

Cool, just wanted to see the logic for the puck being in the mix.
