Pit Your Wits Week 20: The Great Arizona Songbook


Shhh, not so loud. I may or may not have drunk enough PBR last night that I officially have mutton chops and am a initiate hipster. It's cool, I guess.

Last week, I asked y'all what you think the nickname for Tyler Skaggs should be. Keep in mind, this is important stuff. Whatever wins gold (find out after the jump!) becomes his nickname. It is Ape Law. If you wanted to reverse the decision, you would have to fill out 32 forms with a notary present, memorize all the agricultural exports of all the countries within the EU and recite them in front of a guy who is trying to pay attention, but is really watching a twitter feed of a guy talking about the hobos he's seen around Bismarck, North Dakota, and finally, you have to become a master of a Street Fighter game and not use Akuma or Ryu.

So it's really not worth it.


And the Gold goes to piratedan7 for this nickname which is now the official nickname. It also has the added bonus of eliminating "Microwave" from our collective consciousness (I still think his advocacy of "The Microwave" is what got Sutton suspended)

well mine is a twofer

since everyone hates the Microwave…. why don’t we make Skaggs and Montero Skaggy and Scooby?

I used to be disgusted, now I try to be amused....

Trumbar takes home the silver, and give Skaggs an alternate nickname in case of illness:

He is the Kwisatz Haderach!!!!!!!!!

or Muad’Dib

My only basis here is the desert environment of here and Dune and Skaggs being a young hero.

Probably digging a bit too deep on that nickname

Four people win bronze. Rather than post all of their suggestions, I will link back to the thread so you can look at their third tier nicknamery. Whilst they did not get to name Skaggs, imstillhungry95, SenSurround, grimmy01, and Zavada's Moustache all get a point for their efforts.

Your assignment, should you choose to accept it, is this:

Pick the theme song of the 2012 season for the Arizona Diamondbacks so far. It can be anything, really. Including links to youtube clips may be helpful. You are also required to write a short justification (like a sentence at least), because your reasoning for picking said song may not be obvious to all, and so just posting a link to a one man band doing Stone Temple Pilots covers may be blindingly obvious to you as to how it relates, but others may not catch on.

Standard rec rules apply, see stores for details.
