Pit Your Wits ‘17: The Grand Finale

There can only be one...

MLS: FIFA18 Launch Event Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports

Last week, for our final prompt, I asked you to decide how the Diamondbacks should celebrate their first trip to the post season in six years. Lots of red responses, but in the end, Keegan’s lead proved insurmountable. Hotclaws came away with the win with seven recs, Makakilo took second with six, and AzRattler, onedotfive, and red_leader tied with four. Go ahead and look at all of the entries here. That leaves us with one last look at the final standings...

Keegan Thompson-30

Congratulations Keegan! you are our second half champion! But it’s not over yet. Keegan now will face off against first half winner, AzRattler, for the overall season championship. I’ve got to come up with a better name for that... Anyway. I’ll post their three, top rec’d entries along with the prompts they went along with, and then you guys will have the opportunity to choose who had the better overall season. Starting with our first half champ...

Alright folks. The power is in your hands. Only the poll will count. Votes cast in the comments will be ignored. Also, in the event of a tie, whoever had the most rec’d first place comment will have the tiebreaker. Go!
