So this is new and exciting. Usually I'd write two paragraphs of introductory nonsense (emphasis on the nonsense), and then say "Follow after the jump for blah blah..." However, there is no jump! We are in a new world, man. Everything is shinier and there are pyrotechnics and "The Great Gig in the Sky" plays as background music when you go to the bathroom. It's great man. Follow after this paragraph for last week's results and I will announce the winner of the Challenge Making Up Challenge as well.
imstillhungry95 and blank_38 share the winningz this week.
As I mentioned above, this week's challenge was going to be determined by you readers. Well, one of you, because I had to choose one. The author of the challenge I choose will receive three points, and whatever accolades follow.
So I got a few ideas, but there could be only one.
Do you want to know who it is?
Do you really want to know?
Does this "one-sentence-per-paragraph" thing make me sound like Bill Plaschke?
I want to thank everyone who submitted challenges, but like Highlander there could be only one.
Anyway, the winner of that is..... PIRATEDAN7! His challenge will follow after some points.
4 Corners Fan
The first paragraph of Piratedan's e-mail went as follows:
"how about you picking out a random fangraph and having the participants add their own unique data points that took place in the GDT indicating a Diamondbacks win...."
Here is the fangraph in question. So as to bring happy thoughts, it is from last season. Devotees will know instantly which game it is without looking at the date.
I'm going to modify the submitted challenge a little bit by going outside the GDT and choosing certain points, but essentially:
There are three major points on this graph marked by a red dot and a description of what happened on a particular play. What sort of outside thing happened to help/jinx the D'Backs for those plays? (I.E: Someone did the wave). It can be in the scope of a made-up GDT, or something totally unrelated.
Post your entries, rec the ones you like. This is the final time you'll be able to do this in the year 2012, so make it count!
