THIS AIN'T YO DADDY'S PIT YOUR WITS.
You think you're ready? You think you are ready, but you are not ready. That is the opposite of being ready. That's right, PIT YOUR WITS 2013 IS COMING, and there's nothing you can do to stop it. What are the scary new changes that are coming?
- The Aggro Crag has been replaced by the MEGA CRAG.
- Rotating knives.
- The winner will have to play one on one with a randomly selected monster from "Space Jam" (hope you get the Shawn Bradley one!)
- You'll have to randomly take the LSAT at some point. You are not allowed to prepare.
Other than that, it will be the same as last year. What was it like last year? Well let's go back in the archives and
I'll lazily copy and paste the post I used this time last year. Tell you the rules as they were announced last year.
For those new to PyW, every Thursday I will post a challenge of some sort, and you will give an entry or response in the comments. For example: a challenge might be:
"What are the first two words that comes to mind when someone brings up 'Willie Bloomquist'?"
And you would respond with whatever you think is funny, relevant, witty etc. Your response could be:
Or whatever else may pop into your skull. Challenges may range from the controlled (like my example above) to the very free flowing and open ended. The common thread is that your creativity will be put to work.
How will your responses be judged? By you the people, of course! Any submissions that you like for any reason should be "rec'd" by you. If you are new to the pit and SB Nation, you might ask "How do I rec?". To "rec" a post, click on the "actions" button on any post and then hit the "rec" button. Easier than winning a home run derby against Rey Ordonez!
The top three rec recipients will be awarded points. Six points will be awarded for first, three points for second, and one point for third. There will be an overall leaderboard and whoever wins after the season gets the overall recognition of having won, which is worth something, I guess.
So prepare yourselves, you only have a week.
