SSO1 was nice enough to come up with some idea for me to crib from, I mean, tossed out as a challenge to use as game thread material.
Not one to lightly cast aside ideas for game threads, much like a 10 year old me scrambling for the returnable pop bottle that would be used to buy Tops trading cards, I grabbed that list and set it aside as the treasure it is.
In looking at the list, it's hard to decide if I should go in the order the ideas, I mean, challenges, as listed or should I start with the easiest one first?
See archived game thread here for list of ideas: http://twinsdaily.co...edt-8242019-ad/

Then, I looked at the IpRay AnVay InkleWay idea and thought, neato! Imagine, you've been Twins fan these last few years but, for some reason, took a 9 month long snooze after the Twins tanked in ought 18 and then woke up to find out the Twins are in first place, are leading the league in bombas! (though you wonder what, exactly, a "bomba" is)
You rush out, buy a jersey, and have the name, "Rip Van Twinkie" embroidered on the back, because, hey, Twins fan, and you've slept a long time. Might as well celebrate!
Then, SSO1 mentions "Daves Top 10" being a rejected idea. To which I reply, "Challenge Accepted!"
