Roger Rodriguez, major league baseball pitcher

Posted under Episode 101, Story On By Chief

You are pitching in the final inning. You are about to throw the final strike when you coach calls timeout. He walks out to the pitching mound to give you a motivational speech.

> You listen to him You look around and see that the entire stadium is watching you. They want to know what this man has to say. You nod your head slowly, taking it all in. The crowd is silent as they wait for you to speak. "I am here today because I have something to prove," you begin.

You continue.

"My name is Roger Rodriguez". "I believe that we can do better than what we've been doing so far this season. We're not winning enough games. We need to be playing more exciting ballgames". The coach looks at you with a mixture of disappointment and respect. "It's true. It's true. We haven't played many exciting ballgames lately".

You Throw the ball at the next batter and hit him in the butt. You pound your chest and scream "USA! USA!" The crowd goes wild.

You walk back onto the field. The coach stands up from his seat and begins walking towards you. "Well?" he says. "We don't play much fun ball anymore". You shake your head. "No. We just aren't playing enough fun ballgames. If we keep putting off playing them, we won't get any practice before we go on the road again".

You attack the rival team for no reason other than to make the game more interesting. It clears both dugouts and the fight lasts for several hours.

Eventually the opposing manager comes over to you. "Hey boss, we had a real good time last night". "Yeah, well let's try it again", you reply. The next day you face off against another rival team. This one has a lot more talent. You win easily and take the lead in the standings. Your teammates congratulate you. "That was awesome!"

You celebrate with your teammates by having a contest to see who can get the most pussy in one night.

The following week, the opposing manager comes over to you. "Hey boss, we're really starting to turn things around now". "Yeah, but we still have a long way to go". "What do you mean?" you ask. "Last night we beat a pretty good team, didn't we? We should be able to do it again".

You pick a fight with the mascot.

Your team wins the next three games and you feel like you are getting closer to being a champion. Then the opposing manager comes over to you. "Hey boss, we really need to start playing some fun ball games". "Yeah, but I'm starting to think that I'm starting to lose my edge". "Well, there's only two weeks left until the playoffs".

You visit sick kids in the hospital and promise them you will make the playoffs by maximizing fun.

THE END

You promise one of the sick kids that you will hit a home run just for him. You pinky swear.

In the first episode of our new series, we'll meet the people behind the stories you love.

You Before the game starts, you get word that the sick kid you pinky swore with had to have his pinky amputated. Freed from the pressure of keeping your promise, you hit three home runs, and your team score 9 out of 10 on the Fun Scale.

After the game, you sit down to eat dinner with your family. A young girl sits across from you, her eyes wide open in shock. She tells you she watched you hit the home runs and then the boy in front of her told her how you promised to hit the boy in front of him with a bat if he did what you said.

You say "A promise is a promise," you say, as you hit the boy in front of her with a bat. If he wasn't a sick kid before, he definitely is now.

You After the game, you watch the little girl cry. She doesn't understand why you would hurt her friend. She asks you "Why did you do that?" You respond "Because I love you". You After the game, you look at the little girl. Her eyes fill with tears. She hugs you and cries. You tell her "Don't cry, sweetie".
