SoSG Streaking Proposition Post: Quarter-Finals

Okay, the final eight players have had a day off to nurse their injuries and rest up, so here's the proposition for tonight's game. Tonight's proposition bet comes from the brilliantly twisted and devious mind of SoSG Eric Karros:

The last comment in this Proposition Post thread on or before 7:00 PM will be by someone who took (or was given) the "True" side of this True/False proposition.

Just to be clear, since this one is a bit trickier:

  • The first person to comment in each head-to-head competition must establish a side, either by voting "True" or "False". That first comment in each bracket establishes the proposition sides for both players in that bracket.
  • The person who makes the *last* comment on or before 7:00 PM will establish which side "wins" (for all four brackets).

Cast your votes here. As usual, any votes made after 7:00 PM PT are invalid. Good luck!

true

Neeebs said...

Ok. I was going to say false so the world is good.

Spank said...

False

Josh S. said...

Well, I'm fucked.

Josh S. said...

Can I play under protest, since the players can easily affect the outcome?

Or, can I play under protest because I'm dumb and fell right into the trap?

Mr. Customer said...

False is good with me.

Jason said...

DAMMIT!

Dusty Baker said...

Can someone try to explain this fucking tripe?

Josh S. said...

I hope I misunderstood the rules right.

Dusty Baker said...

I wanted this to be abt baseball.

Keven C said...

I feel like the dude in that commercial that shows up a half-hour early for the flash mob.

Dusty Baker said...

Well said Keven C.

Josh S. said...

We all did, Dust.

I kinda want a mulligan on this one, win or lose.

Dusty Baker said...

Me, too. I want to lose to Josh fair and square.

Steve Sax said...

If I think I understand the rules right, Josh S had the last comment before 7:01p, so his "false" side wins out. Right?

Josh S. said...

Yeah, but I think this one confused too many of us. Just look at my comments for example.

rbnlaw said...

killKillKILL!

Jason said...

Well, that was totally predictable.

Dusty Baker said...

I was for some reason thinking that each power only had one "bullet." I didn't understand that each had to comment, then it went all Assassin's Circle from there.

Dusty Baker said...

^ player

Steve Sax said...

Hey, I'm sorry guys. I thought this proposition would be kinda fun... oh well.

I'll know for next time, then...

Steve Sax said...

BTW, finally a round with all players checking in.

I have the winners as:
Neeebs
Mr. Customer
Spank
Josh S.

Let me know if I'm wrong. See you four tomorrow.

There is a GT, you know?

Josh S. said...

Sax, don't get me wrong, it was definitely a clever tactic. It's just that it was kinda jarring to have a round that we could control the outcome of, rather than wagering on a baseball stat.

That said, I WON, BITCH! HONK HONK! U! S! A! U! S! A!

Dusty Baker said...

This put me in a bad mood for the night.

Dusty, out.

Spank said...

Messus won! Oh Joy!

Central Valley Fan said...

Yeah where in the rules does it say multiple posts?

Central Valley Fan said...

Also rules say before 7pm, hence Kevin c is last comment at 6:59...

Dusty Baker said...

Exactly, CVF. It doesn't necessarily exclude multiple posts, but led some to have an interpretation that multiple posts were not part of the gameplay.

Central Valley Fan said...

New rule, fox writes the rules from now on...

Dusty Baker said...

@CVF

Or: This is Florida 2000 all over again.

Central Valley Fan said...

Yeah my hanging comment didn't count!

Spank said...

There is no crying in SoSG Streak Stakes,ya heard!

Spank said...

69!

Central Valley Fan said...

Like going down Jamie McCourt, this left a bad taste in my mouth!
