I’m going to the Nats-Pirates “tilt”* tonight at Nationals Park. Needless to say, the city shakes in collective anticipation.
But what would the equivalent match up like this be in sports or even just in other parts of life?
- A completely meaningless match like Stoke-Bolton with teams that aren’t going to Europe and aren’t going to drop either?
- A relegation six-pointer, with both teams going all out for survival.
- A cripple-fight
- Pro wrestling, where two groups of drugged-up men go through the motions of competition in which the actual result means nothing whatsoever.
What suggestions do you have? What are other examples of Nats-Pirates.
