Pit Your Wits Week 7: The Dbackolypse AKA "Can't We Just Get BEYOND Thunderdome?"


This is Pit Your Wits. It is a frivolous activity, designed to distract the easily distracted away from the emptyness and pointlessness of your fragile existences as you just sit on a rock burning through space YOUR LIVES HAVE NO MEANING! ABANDON ALL HOPE.


*ahem* Sorry about that. Anyway, last week our challenge was to bemoan Willie Bloomquist's slumping ways. Since that was posted, he has seemed to start raking. PIT YOUR WITS IS THE OFFICIAL SLUMPBUSTER OF THE ARIZONA DIAMONDBACKS. NO MAN SHOULD HAVE THIS MUCH POWER.

After the jump, results and stuff.


First place goes to blank_38 for this 5 rec performance:

"Whenever I see Willie pop out when I hitting leadoff I...

check how Stephen drew’s rehab is coming along."

No wonder he's fat.

Silver goes to kishi, for this:

"Whenever I see Willie pop out when hitting leadoff I..."

…think to myself "At least he won’t get picked off first."

"Anytime you can sign an oft-injured guy to fill a hole that wasn't there YOU MAKE THAT DEAL."

"Whenever I see Willie pop out when hitting leadoff I..."

am surprised and astonished….er not really.

This week the end has come. The bullpen has collapsed, the offense has sputtered to a halt. Mutants and deviants (otherwise known as Dodger fans) roam the aisles of Chase Field. You are a survivor, though. You have three items with you to make it through the fallout. What are they?

Post your responses below. Be creative, funny, etc. Rec others that you like. The top three rec getters will be awarded points, and a first round bye in the Gladiator Arena that has been set up where Fatburger used to be.
