Pit Your Wits Week 15: History Lesson

Kirby Lee-US PRESSWIRE

Let me stop you right there if you're going to be bringing that weak sauce Titanic or Hindenburg reference. Dig a little deeper?

Last week I challenged you to write a soccer-style chant for the Diamondbacks:

Gold-star_medium

Goldy Got Bat

Oh!
My!
God!

Gibby look at that bat! It is so big!

He looks like one of those long home run guys.

I got a big bat and I cannot lie.
I love to make pitchers cry.
With one big swing he puts the Dbacks in front.
And always makes Tim Lincecum look like a runt.

So Gibby
"Yeah"
Gibby
"Yeah"
Do you need someone to bunt?

Well call Owings,
Owings
Owings to the plate.
Cuz Goldy got bat!

(Sir Mix-a-lot "Baby Got Back")

I'm not just a sports guy, I am an any reason to BBQ guy!

Sung at home games, to our opponents, in the top of the first

When you walk to the plate
hold your baaat up high
and dont be a-fraid of the ballll
at the end of our arm
is a go-pher pitch
and the sweet sil-ver song of a bomb

walk up, walk up
with hope in your bat
and you’ll ne-ver miss a ball
You’ll NEE-VEEERR miss aaaa baaall…

Not everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts can be counted. - William B Cameron 1963

LET IT GO LET IT GO

STOP HITTING PEOPLE GIBSON
LET IT GO LET IT GO
PROVING A POINT GOES NOWHERE

WE DON’T CARE
WE JUST WANT WINZ
LET THE PAST STAY THERE
RETALIATION NEVER WORKS ANYWAY

Imagination is for turbo-nerds who can't handle how kick-butt reality is.

For Marshal last night after his first pitch to Braun:

Oops, I did it again,
I cannot believe,
That I was just ran.

I missed him the first time,
A second time means that I’m serious
‘Cause to loose all our senses
That’s so typical KG

Oops! I did it again
I played with my heart, and I lost the game

Oops, it happened again,
You thought the pitch "slipped"
I’m not that innocent!

"A good friend of mine used to say, 'This is a very simple game. You throw the ball, you catch the ball, you hit the ball. Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose, sometimes it rains.' Think about that for a while."

Why... I happen to have one of these written!

Oh, when the Snakes go slith’ring in
Oh, when the Snakes go slith’ring in,
Oh how I want to be in their number
When the Snakes go marching in!

Oh, when the RUNZ refuse to score
Oh, when the RUNZ refuse to score
I’ll still be in their number
When the RUNZ refuse to score!

Oh, when the ‘Pen melts down
Oh, when the ’Pen melts down,
I’ll still be in their number
When the ‘Pen melts down!

Oh when Goldschmidt comes and hits a bomb
Oh when Goldschmidt hits a bomb
I’ll still be in their number
When Goldschmidt hits a bomb!

Oh when Reed shuts the other team down
Oh when Reed shuts them down
I’ll still be in their number
When Reed shuts em down!

Oh we have won! Oh we have won!
I tell you we have won!
And we decreased that Magic Number
All because we have won!

Whatever you've got planned, forget it. I'm the Doctor. I'm from the planet Gallifrey, in the constellation of Kasterborous. I am the Oncoming Storm, the Bringer of Darkness. And you... are basically just a rabbit, aren't you? ~The Doctor

Kishi still has a big lead, but it's been shrinking a little in recent weeks. Do you have what it takes to overcome his wit? Show us what you got with this week's challenge:

Compare the Diamondbacks 2014 season to a specific historical event and a give a brief description why.

Give me recs, or give me death!
