For this week’s game of the week I had to look long and hard across the country to find a worthy game.  Luckily I was able to find a worthy game in Greensboro, North Carolina in the land of the grasshopper.  On Friday Night the Greensboro Grasshoppers will be hosting “Superhero/Villain Night” at the ballpark…probably because of the Avengers movie coming out on the same day.

Superhero/Villain Night is a contest amongst the fans on who can bring the best costume.  You can be any superhero or villain you want to be.  You can be a stoic hero such as Superman or Batman.  You can be a villain such as the Joker or the Green Goblin.  You can be an underrated superhero such as Derek Zoolander or Captain Planet.  You can probably even make a hero up.  Just make it a really cool costume and you might be able to sing the Seventh Inning Stretch at the game!

Can you imagine going to a baseball game and sitting next to Daredevil…or trying to get Catwoman’s number while watching the game?  Imagine telling your kids that you saw Iron Man sing the National Anthem!  These are memories that are unforgettable and should be cherished haha!

Seriously though what other event can bring comic book fanatics to a baseball game?  As a baseball fan I love it when a team’s promotional staff can think of something crazy like this.  This is what can make that fair-weather fan’s experience a good one and what can make a huge baseball fan such as myself a memorable one.  I hope that the Grasshoppers bring back this promotion next year so that I can participate in the promotion!

If I ever get to attend this game I would only pick the mightiest super hero of them all!

Shaq as the Superhero "Steel"

Shaq as the Superhero “Steel”

That’s right I would pick the superhero “Steel” perfected by the legend Shaquille O’Neal!  I mean what better superhero can you pick then an aspring rapper/actor basketball superhero inside a superhero costume that he got out of the garbage!  The synopsis of this very underrated classic is quite compelling.  I mean this movie should’ve won an Oscar!

Check out this clip:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kmYwc_QVJKk.  You can’t tell me watching Shaq break out “hammer time” against a bunch of punks doesn’t get you pumped!

Which hero/villain would you go to the game as?

I think the crawdads/grasshoppers game could be like a Zearns flea market amateur wrestling nite (for those who know the Philly area). Wish I lived closer to NC, I’d be there. Americana at its best! Shaq as a vigilante…. what the streets of Philly/Atlanta/LA/New York..any large city could use.
