The guys over at DRaysBay put up this really cool post, called “Choose Your Own Adventure: Joe Maddon’s Big Night.” Go entertain yourselves with it, because the options are so funny.
It is July 18, 2011, and the Yankees are playing at The Trop. C.C. Sabathia and David Price are on the mound, while you, Coach Joe Maddon, have a game-time decision to make. From there, depending upon the choices that you make, adventure and hilarity ensue. You may have to decide whether to leave a pitcher in, or where to eat dinner after game. For example, at one point, I was asked:
On one hand there is a lot of preparation to go over for tomorrow's game. Phil Hughes is on the mound and he's no slouch. On the other hand, tonight was a big statement win and after a big statement win it's always nice to take in the sights at a local strip club called the Pink Pony. So, do you:
Go home and make preparations for tomorrow's game, or
go to the Pink Pony Strip Club?
If you make a poor decision, the game ends and asks “What Could I have Done Differently?,” which brings you back to the beginning. Lebron wishes that real life had this option. I wish I knew how to create something like this, because it is sort of brilliant. A+, DRaysBay.
