Pit Your Wits: Week 5

Last week, I gave you a picture, and you captioned it. A lot of first time finishers this week. Let's find out who!

Some really good entries this week, but as you know, there can only be one, and this week, we have a first time visitor to the podium in first place, TylerO!

In second place, we have a four-way tie, with three rec's apiece, between Diamondhacks, TheGoldenSombrero, Jim, and onedotfive!

Jake Smolinski discovers

That saying "I’m not much of a hugger" is insufficient defense against the affection of Paul Goldschmidt.

Goldy shows his many talents as he imitates crane pose from The Karate Kid as he tags out runner

Not one shred of evidence exists in favor of the idea that life is serious.

And in third, we finish it off with another first time placer, hventure!

Even though Smolinski knew of Goldschmidt's love of bear hugs, he still wasn't able to escape!

Individual commitment to a group effort - that is what makes a team work, a company work, a society work, a civilization work. Vince Lombardi

It's nice to see a lot of new names in the game this week, and even nicer to see a lot of people with multiple rec's. Onedotfive's second place finish moves her into solo possesstion of first place!

As for this week's prompt, it's fairly straightforward. I'm sure you are all aware what a #HOTTAKE is. A sports writer, tv personality, radio host, or someone on a blog says something blatantly obvious, stupid, ridiculous, or something along those lines that is easily ridiculed. I want you to come up with your own #HOTTAKE for the Dbacks' season so far. Post yours and don't forget to rec the ones you like! Go!
