10,000 More Hits Than Uribe ! Final Round !

hey everybody.

THANKS so much to those of you who stopped by ATBATT and checked out my contest. Double and triple THANKS to those of you who became new followers and especially to all of you who participated.

i hope it was fun for you all, but does require a bit more work than i thought !  a tip o' the cap to those of you who run contests often.  i have a newfound appreciation for how hard the group breakers work to get everything right.

here's the final round for the contest with the final 2 tiers of prizes...4th and 5th place. 

fourth place will feature football cards. here's some examples:

fifth place features some cool oddball:

 final opportunity for points:
 if you can play any position for any professional sport, for any team (contemporary, no playing with the '55 Dodgers or '27 yanks)  -  where and what would you play?

the hot corner for the phillies?
goalie for the LA Kings?
striker for manchester united?
head whacker (or whatever they're called) for your favorite cricket team?
driving for the tide team in nascar?

what's that ultimate sports dream?

final 1 point for a comment below.  that could be THE point that gets you first place loot ! 


  1. free safety for the Cowboys.

    find the ball carrier and remove him, from his head. Simple.

  2. Closer for the Rockies, pretty light workload this season though.

  3. Punter/Placekicker for the Green Bay Packers!

  4. Starting defender on the USA soccer national team.

  5. Catcher for the Cardinals would get me some unflattering comparisons to Yadi, so I'll say 2B. I've been playing that a lot in pickup softball games and have started to like it.

  6. I would love to be a starting pitcher on the Dodgers. I would only have to pitch every 5th day and get to watch my favorite team from the dugout on my off days. That job is gold.

    I also would like to call out Zakwin for wanting to take Matt Kemp's job. Hahahaha!

  7. Towel boy for the Swedish Bikini Team... Hey, if you're gonna dream, dream big!!

  8. Do you get all the money/fame/perks/problems, too? Or is it just whatever would be most fun to play?

    If you got all the money/perks/etc., I would definitely be a pro baseball player for KC...probably play 2B.

    If it was just something for the fun of the game, I would want to be a hitter/blocker on the Olympic volleyball team.

  9. I was going to say Starting Cornholer for the American Cornholes, but maybe that's not professional enough, so, bat boy for the Tigers.
