MLB Fan Cave Over/Under Game! (Part Two)

In part one of the MLB Fan Cave Over/Under Game, we covered the Twitter followers each cave dweller might get while inhabiting the Big Apple .  Part two takes a look at some fun over/unders about what we except to see from the MLB Fan Cave Nine in NYC.

Pranks pulled on Shaun Kippins

Over/Under 7.5

They really opened the door for Shaun to be the fall guy for hilarity when Troy Tulowitzki punked him.  I’m sure that Ricardo has something up his sleeve.  It will be great to see if Shaun gets revenge on Tulo when he’s scheduled to visit the Fan Cave.

Tattoos gotten AND hats acquired by Benjamin Christensen

Over/Under 8.5 tattoos

Over/Under 79.5 hats

I asked the man himself for the official totals of his tattoos and hat collection.  Christensen has a staggering 38 tattoos on the sides of his body, while the hat collection is at 120.  We know that Ben has plans to add some ink while in the cave, just how many more mascots can he add?  Maybe the Rays just need to keep adding mascots every year like DJ Kitty to fill Ben’s needs.  The hats are a tricky one.  Ben’s looking to extend his collection into minor league teams as he has the majors set pretty well.  New Era being a sponsor of the Fan Cave might push this total way over, so we set the line at 200 total hats in his collection that Ben leaves NYC with.

Pizzas eaten by Ricardo Marquez

Over/Under 25.5

New York City has delicious pizza and if you follow Ricardo on Twitter, you know the dude loves him some pizza.  (Doritos tacos too)  There are 26 weeks in the MLB season, so we’re setting this that Ricardo will eat about one pizza a week in NYC.

Times Kyle Thompson reminds Ricky Mast and Shaun Kippins about the Braves collapse in 2011

Over/Under 49.5

This just seems like a natural topic to come up.  Kyle, the Cardinals fan, coming off the World Series title living with two Braves fans that his team passed in an epic collapse last season.  Bonus question is the number of times Lindsay Guentzel will remind them of the 1991 World Series.

Tomahawk chop motions by Ricky Mast 

Over/Under 3240.5

Ricky is a huge Braves fan.  This number works out to about 20 tomahawk chops a game.  Some games might be more if it’s close.

Things balanced on Gordon Mack’s chin 

Over/Under 19.5

A number that I’m most worried about.  Fans that come to the cave, might just ask Gordon to put things on his chin for fun and blow this number way over.  Even players might be intrigued by his quirky skill.

Fuhgeddaboutit’s said by Eddie Mata

Over/Under 84.5

The Brooklyn boy returns to the Big Apple.  Eddie’s personality will radiate in the cave and connect with the hometown Yankee fans.   Who wouldn’t love a few FUHGEDDABOUTIT’s in that thick accent?

Ricky Sandwiches given out 

Over/Under 99.5

The lasting image of the Fan Cave 30 in Arizona was the Ricky Sandwich.

I know quite a few people (myself included) that are already planning on getting a Ricky Sandwich of their own in NYC.  Carnegie Deli needs to get on this quick and make a sandwich for the menu.  Talking with the two Rickys, we’ve settled on carne asada topped with bacon, BBQ sauce, and monterey jack cheese.  HASHTAG delicious.

Marraige Proposals to Lindsay Guentzel and Ashley Chavez

Over/Under 199.5

This number might be too low, but I think it’s about right.  Once fans see how knowledgable, talented, and beautiful these two are; the Twitter marriage proposals are going to come flooding in, especially with the ease of doing it on Twitter.  Somewhere about one a day seems like a fair number.   And no, my proposals to them will not count towards this total.

Some great things to look forward to in the Fan Cave this season.  The countdown is on for the Japan series and opening day.  These over/unders are all in fun and as Ricardo would say POSIVIBES, great now I wonder how many times he’ll hashtag that on Twitter this season.
