Pit Your Wits Week 23: The Final Challenge

Daniel Berehulak

ONE MORE TIME!

We head towards the end... The end of everything.

First Place - Diamondhacks - 5 Recs

Postgame Exec-u-Drop

After each home loss, fans text ‘bid’ which Dbacks’ exec/broadcaster is bungee launched from the rafters. Raised proceeds go to worthy cause (ie Red Cross, payroll, Berthiaume’s LASIK surgery). Fans leave entertained, empowered; all is forgiven until the next defeat.

How you play the game is for college ball. When you're playing for money, winning is the only thing that matters. - Durocher

Second Place - TimInTucson - 4 Recs

Dunk Tanks

You remember the old dunk tanks from school carnivals. Teachers would sit on the hot seat and students would spend their hard-earned (parents) money to throw balls at the target in hopes of dropping said teacher into a tank of water. Well I think the hot seat should be filled by the most deserving person of the day. Blow a save? Have a seat above the tank. Get the Golden Sombrero? Your seat is waiting. Ump blows am obvious call? No favorites here, sit right down Tony Randazzo. My only fear is Baxter would be voted into the seat almost every night. By the way, the tank would be filled with……………Nacho Cheese

Third Place - imstillhungry95 - 3 Recs

Throwing

pies at people who attempted to start the wave during the game.

Here are the standings headed into the final week:

So the last two people eligible for the championship are... Jim and Hacks. Wow. #Narrative. That's the way the points work out, I guess. I mean I suppose I could have manipulated stuff to include more people in the finale, but unlike some circle-happy racing organizations, I have some integrity.

I suppose we should hype this.


THEY HAVE BEEN RIVALS FOR YEARS. AND NOW THEY COME HEAD TO HEAD. THIS ONE IS FOR ALL THE PEDANTIC INTERPRETATIONS OF ATTENDANCE NUMBERS. AND PLUS THERE'S A BUNCH OF OTHER PEOPLE THAT CAN POST FOR PRIDE OR THE CHANCE TO WIN A CHALLENGE OR WHATEVER MOTIVATES YOU I DON'T JUDGE.

IN THE PIT YOUR WITS FINALE: WHAT *NOT DIRECTLY BASEBALL RELATED* (I.E NOT PITCHING, HITTING, MANAGING, FIELDING, ETC.) SHOULD THE DIAMONDBACKS DO TO THE TEAM TO IMPROVE THEIR FORTUNES IN 2014? I'M LEAVING THE QUESTION INTENTIONALLY VAGUE SINCE I'M INTERESTED IN SEEING HOW YOU INTERPRET IT.

GO DO IT! NOW TAKE US OUT!
