Spot The Sig! - 5th Inning

This weeks early Spot the Sig! entry should prove a little tougher than last weeks and is good for a Triple.

And I decided to move up the STS! this week because there is apparently some football game going on tomorrow, and I didn't want to interfere with anyone's game or party plans.

It also gives me an opportunity to ask this Bonus Question. What will the final score for the Superbowl be? A walk or Stolen Base goes to whoever picks closest to the Cardinals Score and the Steelers Score. So I will award two bonuses, 1 each for Cards and Steelers - Simply specify your guess as something like Cardinals 47 Steelers 3.

And a second bonus question is What songs will Bruce Springsteen perform during the SuperBowl Halftime show? Each team can pick 5 Bruce Songs. Whoever gets the most songs wins a bonus of a single.

So yes we have a lot of bases on the table this week a triple for the auto, SBs for the two SuperBowl scores, and a Single for the Springsteen Bonus. I will close bonus Question guesses at 3pm on Sunday (Eastern).

The current STS! standings going into the fifth inning:

PTBNL - repsresentin those Fightin Phillies - 6 Runs - Men on 1st and 3rd.
Night Owl - Dodgers - 1 Run in men on 2nd and 3rd
Stats on the Back - Mets - 1 Run in - Man on 3rd
Cardboard Junkie - Braves - 1 Run in - Men on 2nd and 3rd
Card Buzz - Angels - Man on Second.
Cardboard Addiction - Bosox - Man on First
A Cardboard Problem - Yankees - man on first.
Covered in Wrappers - Cardinals - On Deck
Nachos Grande - Reds - On Deck

That looks like it says Gil Meche, but something tells me that'd be too easy!

I'm lousy at this game, but maybe I can get on base thanks to the Super Bowl.

Cardinals 16 - Steeler 28

It sure looks like Gil Meche to me.

Arizona 33, Pittsburgh 24. (Yes, I'm calling the upset).

Songs from The Boss: The Rising, Glory Days, Dancing in the Dark, Tenth Avenue Freeze Out, Waiting on a Sunny Day (I know he's going to sing one of songs on his current album, but I don't know what those songs are).

Damn, I hate being in college when these things are on Saturday night. Maybe I can steal home on saying that it's a 1998 Best Aquasox card of Gil Meche.

If not, I'll go 28 Arizona, 20 Pittsburgh and the following Springsteen songs. I have no idea what he'll actually sing, so I'll go with my personal choices that wouldn't bring down the Tampa fans

Spirit in the Night
Born in the USA
The Rising
Glory Days
The Wresler

Well done, FanofReds. I thought this would be a tougher mostly because Meche is off toiling around in KC, but apparently it wasn't too bad.

Nice collection of songs guessed for the Springsteen Q. And we have a split on the Cards and Steelers. Hope this keeps the gm interesting for any of you folks that don't have a stake in the game.

Sorry for the late response. Just got back from a mini vaca. I am happy report that a good time was had by all.

Steelers 27 Cardinals 23.

DayF and Night Owl both get Steelers Bonus.

Dayf Gets Cardinals bonus.

10th Avenue Freeze Out, Born to Run, Working on a Dream, and Glory Days

Night Owl Gets the Springsteen Bonus by naming two songs.

I will sort this all out Monday or Tuesday FanOfReds, Night Owl, and Cardboard Junkie all appear to have scored runs.

pretty busy week on the basepaths. Congrats all.
