Well, since it's Thursday, that means it's going to likely be a slow day up ahead, baseball-wise. Or maybe not, since the threat of Hurricane Irene is raising the spectre of another round of "Death by Baseball," with the Sox squeezing three games into two days, with the possibility of a doubleheader on Saturday in anticipation of a hurricane-out on Sunday. (Especially since Oakland doesn't come back to the East Coast, nor are there common off days remaining.)
However, I still wanted to do something fun for the day, so I thought I'd introduce a new occasional feature: OTM Match Game! It's like Mad Libs, except you get the "question" in advance, and try to come up with the "best" response. ("Best" response meaning the one that earns the most recs.) The winner will even get a prize: a free download of the new SBNation app for iPhone! (Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price: $0.00!) (Insert audience "oohs" and "ahs" here.)
So, give it your best shot:
lone1c: "I love Adrian Gonzalez, but I've got to tell you, he's really slow."
Studio audience: "HOW SLOW IS HE?"
lone1c: "Gonzalez is so slow, that the Sox were doing warmups around Fenway, and he just got lapped by <blank>."
