I played college baseball and we'd play fantasy baseball for our own games. Before the game you would pick two players from the team, and whoever picked the two guys who did the best would win. I played only one time but I thought it was dumb, so with my first pick I picked myself even though I was a backup at the time, and for my second pick I picked a friend of mine who wasn't a starter either. I remember saying something sarcastic like "watch, I'm going to win." Everyone else was picking our starting pitcher, or our 3rd and 4th hole hitters.
I pinch hit that game, and led off the inning with a double that led to a run. We batted around that inning and when I came up again I hit a 3-run homerun. My buddy never made it in the game, but my 11 points was just enough to win. No one could believe it. I think I ate free that night.
