You read that correctly, folks. I came up with the brilliant idea just a week or so into the 2013 season of creating a '3-HR Pool' where we attempt to determine on what date the first player slap 3 dongs all over the place in a single game. For those of you who are unaware, the lore of the 3-HR Cafe Meme can be traced all the way back to HERE
. Read and enjoy.
So, all of that said, I'm just too excited (misplaced?) about this to wait until 2014. So what I've done is compromised with myself. I want to run a pool for the 2013 Second Half. This will give plenty of people enough time to reply and submit a date, and for me to compile it all and track the 2nd half. Will it be as exciting, after somebody accomplishes the unpossibru in the first half? Probably not. But at least I'll get to see if/when I can do this. We also run the possibility of this happening on the first day of the 2nd half, and prematurely finishing, which, being honest, is something I'm pretty used to.
How do you play?
Funny you should ask. All you need to do is reply to this thread with a date sometime between July 17, the day following the All-Star Game, and the final day of the season, September 29th.* On which date, after the All-Star Break, will the first MLB player hit 3 HR in a single game?
What do you win?
Besides predicting when and where lightning will strike at the same time as a tornado touching down, I'll be picketing for you to earn a title, the way we have awarded them in the past to Graphic Contest Winners, etc.
Really, it's all in good fun, and should be fun calling out those as they are eliminated as the dog days of summer drag on.
So, reply to this thread, pick your date. You get one and only one submission! After I read your post, I enter your name and date into my Excel database, and may the odds be ever in your favor!!* This is all en lieu of the obvious choice of 'never'. Submissions of 'never' will not count for the purposes of this promotion.
