This has been mentioned before in the Off Topics but I figured that I should give it a FanPost in order to give everybody a chance to join in on this.
Here's the deal, Griffey! has long been a Mariner legend, whose career has been filled to the brim with exciting dingers and heart stopping catches. Unfortunately Griffey! has also long been an absolute piece of shit on the baseball diamond who has morphed into the Mariner's version of Fat Albert. Now having moved to Seattle in 1997 and not really paying attention to the team till they moved into Safeco, my baseball fanhood has been largely deprived of the show stopping thrill of watching Griffey! come up to plate with the thought that he could go deep at any moment. This needs to change.
Now let me introduce to you the 2010 Griffey! Challenge. The premise is this: Find something that you have been meaning to give up (smoking, drinking, fast food, jerking it, etc) then starting at 7:07 PM PST tomorrow resolve to not do it again until our lovable fat oaf knocks one over the fences. Think of it as Lent mixed with roulette, this could last one at bat (last year I only had to go without caffeine for two at bats) or he could break his hip or some shit and take six months to go deep.
Originally I was only going to do this by myself but other LL'ers have expressed interest in joining in on this aswell. So the purpose of this thread is for people to announce what they plan on giving up and when they miserably fail, for us to mercilessly mock them to oblivion for being a big fat pathetic loser with no self control.
So join in with me as we cheer on The Kid for one last time because let's be honest here, its not like he is going to do any thing for the Mariners that will actually make us give a shit about him.
GO GO GRIFFDAWG GO!
