Okay, as a quick refresher, I asked you to come up with a new chant for us to use at the Diamondbacks games and you delivered! Lots of good entries and, more importantly, lots of rec’s! In first place we find Nate with a classic...

Beat LA

Doesn’t matter who you’re playing; the Beat LA chant will always be loudest.

In second place, Hacks, with a... longer than expected entry

at bat:

GO SNAKES

GO SNAKES

JUST ONE BITE

IS ALL IT TAKES

SNAKES ALIVE

SNAKES ALIVE

FIRST A BLOOP

THEN A DRIVE

on the basepaths:

WE’RE SNAKES

WE’RE SNAKES

GOT NO CONSCIENCE

GOT NO BRAKES

This is just the beginning

And in third place we have a three way tie!

40,000 people hissing.

It may seem crazy but what’s more intimidating than 40,000 crazy people?

Though I do feel like this question does need to be asked

But what 40,000 people?

There is a gif that goes with this one, that adds to the chant, but I’m tired of fighting with it to play nice in the editor.

Hojotoho! Hojotoho! Heiaha! Heiaha!

And then TylerO spoke for the rest of us uncultured swine...

"Hojotoho! Hojotoho! Heiaha! Heiaha!"?

Isn’t that "Let’s go, Dbacks!" chanted after the fourth beer?

Aaaaaannnnnnd Diamondhacks moves into the lead! This week was also Keegan and Nate’s first times placing on the podium, so congrats to them!

This week, as you may or may not know, is Phoenix Comicon. It’s where nerds like me go and get autographs from nerd celebrities, buy stuff they really don’t need, and dress in costumes. I’m Gene Wilder’s Willy Wonka, in case you were wondering. In honor of this glorious event, I’m going to give you a comic themed prompt this week. Pick any player on the Diamondbacks, past or present, and tell us what their main superpower would be if they were in a comic book. Go!
