Pit You Wits '16: Week 14

New, 11 comments

After the week month season the Dbacks are having, we're going to need these ideas to spice things up

Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports

Starting off the second half off right, we have Rockkstarr and AzRattler!

Dunk Tank!

Put LaRussa in it one game, Stew the next, & so on and let the fans have their shots at dunking them. Rhe fans can vocalize their thoughts to them as well!

Whack a Mascot

In second place, we have another tie between Makakilo and TylerO!

Dugout Gals

Between rounds at a boxing match, Ring Girls (attractive models) walk around holding a big card that shows the next round number.

Between innings at the D’Backs games, Dugout Gals could walk back and forth on top of the dugout carrying a big card that shows the next inning, such as top half of the 2nd inning, or bottom half of the 2nd inning.

When the accolades start pouring in, we can add Homerun Gals. After each D’Backs homerun they would walk on top of the dugout with a joyous exclamation card, such as Awesome! or in-orbit! or Goldy Gone!

When people clamor for more, we can add Video Review Gals. They would carry cards with a question like tagged? or homerun? or safe? or out? As time allows, they would put down their sign and do the chicken dance.

When passion is channeled into a compelling enthusiasm and desire, the result is awesomeness.

Replace the "wave" with the Tsunami

At an opportune moment during the game, one section rises to its feet in unison, then turns and walks out. Progress one section at a time around the stadium.

I'm beginning to enjoy the consistency of badness.

And in third, we find Dbackid, onedotfive, MrMrrbi,

We could have the legend racers hit a target with a baseball from 90 ft. away after they finish running

The targets would be Dave Stewart, Tony La Russa, Mike Butcher, and Ken Kendricks. The first person to hit their target wins.

My suggestions

1. Eliminate the everybody clap your hands 
2. Eliminate the hot dog mustard race 
3. Eliminate the legends race.
4. Keep the kiss cam.
5. Tone down the extra extra loud PA announcements 
6. Between innings, watch the players warm up and enjoy the music of the stadium organist, who is excellent.

Baseball is the greatest game ever invented. Ever. Say Amen.

And for this week's prompt. At a game this week, TLR was caught doing... something.

Here have a link to it, because apparently, I are completely unable to embed things any more, either Fangraphs or tweets, or anything.

So, yeah, that happened. What I want to know, is what is he talking about? What topic of conversation made that... motion come up? Try to keep it Dbacks/baseball related? Go for it.
