Literal Baseball Teams

Postby pomplona's finest » Mon Jul 12, 2004 1:40 am

This may sound strange... but if teams actually had the literal interpretations of themselves, how would they fair?

EXAMPLE

Away Team - St. Louis Cardinals (a group of birds)

VS.

Home Team - Kansas City Royals (some kings, queens, etc.)

-since the royals are home it would be played in a castle.


btw I don't mean a baseball game, more of a last team standing type of thing.

In this match I think the pampered royalty would fall to the dangerous swooping attacks from the birds. Even in the friendly confines of a castle the redbirds would be too swift to stop.

Wow, this may very well be the worst post ever.

a friend of mine, who knows vary little about college basketball, filled out a bracket a couple of years back. In essence it was a rock-paper-scissors kind of a bracket based on mascots/nicknames.

animals beat inanimate objects (eg. fighting banana slugs would beat the trees)
humans beat animals + inanimate objects
superhumans/superheroes beat everything.

animal vs. animal follows the food chain
human vs. human follows relative strength etc
super-human same as human.
Give a man a fish and he'll eat for a day, teach a man to fish and he'll drown because you forgot to teach him to swim.

I was thinking that the Red Sox (socks) Vs. the Yankees (north-easterners) would have just about as even a rivalry as they have now.

I think the White Sox would win...... the Red Sox are just too old. They've been darned too many times.

This seems like the right place to ask: Where would the Expos fit into this whole thing?

And could anybody beat the Twins? There'd be twice as many of them. Maybe the Pirates. Yar.

I think the Giants would crush everyone. But the Astros would be out of this world (cheesy joke O:-) )
