Pit Your Wits Week 16: Behind Closed Doors

New, comments

This is Pit Your Wits. We are coming to you a little later in the day because of the Dodgers-D'Backs matinee. Boy howdy, wasn't that a game? Remember when (name of player) did (insert cool/inspiring/quirky baseball thing). Boy howdy that just made me so excited I still am typing this right now live. I'm definitely not doing this 9 hours ago and just editing this down to create tension and appease an audience I think is kind of slow despite all evidence to the contrary. I mean, I'm not the sort of person who works for the sort of company that would do that!

BRB, moving Community to Fridays.

Speaking of which , last week's PYW involved you deciding what sports the D'Backs Olympic Team would participate in. Let's award medals and stuff after the jump.

In the interests of continuing the tradition of shady Olympic judging, and because the entries were very long (as they were meant to be), and because I don't feel like editing down our silver medalist's many posts until we got something that followed the specified format, and to continue this NBC riffing. I'm going to link to an online stream of least week's events here, and then I will blatantly spoil the results below.


Gold goes to SenSurround! It was inspiring!


Silver is awarded to imstillhungry95! It was breathtaking!


Bronze is awarded to both Zavada's Moustache and Diamondhacks! It evoked self-defenestration from all of us!

Here's the medal count:

Boy howdy. Here is this week's challenge:

Two days ago, we were greeted to this:

Oh no! Shock! Intrigue! Incomplete sentences! Surely this was a sign that Drew would be shipped to Oakland or Detroit or Kodiak! But wait!

Wait, what? I am so confused! I need to lie down. Yesterday, the trade deadline passed without any Drew incident. So what was that all about?

Your challenge this week is: What exactly went on in that conversation? Be funny. Rec the ones you like, etc (seriously people, this is the 16th week of this, you should know how the scoring works by now)

Get to it!
