Weekly Hypothetical: put one current or former athlete in the Ballpark Village Dunk Tank.

23

2012

On Monday, the vapid hole next to Busch Stadium that’s formally known as “Ballpark Village” may have risen from the dead.  The Cardinals and the Cordish Company, the developers of Ballpark Village, announced that they’re moving forward with construction.  That is, without much/any taxpayer or private funding.

They’ve scaled back from the original plan significantly, but still.  This is exciting for the Cardinals, tourists and the City of St. Louis.  And it’s also exciting for you because we’re using the topic as the impetus for this week’s Weekly Hypothetical.

Without further ado, let’s get jiggy with it.

The grand opening of Ballpark Village is upon us.  New restaurants, new bars, live music, heck, even the homeless have been hosed off in preparation for this miraculous event.  As the master of ceremonies, you have the ability to feature one past/present athlete in the illustrious Dunk Tank. 

Who would you like to soak?”

  • Scott Spiezio. I hate to keep going there, but every time I see him, he looks like he desperately needs a bath.

  • Chris Shaffer says:

    Ray King. Splash factor!

  • Matt Zilch says:

    Hate to say it because he was a stud for the Cards, but Jim Edmonds just to see how badly his guyliner runs down his face.

  • MDF says:

    Metta World Peace or Ron Artest, whoever he is these days, just because he’s a jackass.

  • Joe B says:

    The obvious answer is probably Albert Pujols, but that’s boring. My answer: Brendan Shanahan.

    Current Blues fans were less than thrilled with the NHL’s chief disciplinarian. Shanny turned a blind eye to a bunch of borderline plays involving the Blues, especially the Dwight King hit on Alex Pietrangelo in the playoffs.

    As an added bonus, we could get Craig Janney to come to town to take a few shots at the man who is now married to his ex-wife.

  • Matt Sebek says:

    Absolutely love the Shanny answer.

  • Suzie S says:

    Mark Mulder…he soaked the Cards with that big contract, we finally get some payback.

  • John Fleming says:

    Rick Ankiel. I’m not a great thrower, so at least if I completely blow the throw to the dunk tank, my wildness could be construed as a tribute to the man rather than an exhibition of my terrible arm accuracy.

  • James in Wichita says:

    I’ll go to the well again with this one-Anna Kournikova of the St. Louis Aces. If I have to explain AK and a dunk tank to you then you’re on the wrong website.

  • Harrison says:

    My vote goes for any previous Blues goaltender before Halak/Elliott. Any Blues fan knows that seeing either Chris Osgood or even Patrick Lalime being submerged into a tank of water for many strangers amusement would at least wash (sorry for the pun) away the memories of their failed attempts between the pipes.
    Bonus points if Osgood is wearing a Red Wings jersey.

    Chicago Cub era Carlos Zambrano. The anger level with each passing dunk would increase at a hilarious rate.

  • ScottyP says:

    NBA’s Shawn Bradley, because he’s so tall that his head won’t even go underwater.

  • Bernie Brewer says:

    I know y’all only cover “St. Louis Sports” now, but seeing as Dr. Aaron was a big reason for John Axford being chosen as the 2011 Robert Goulet Award Winner, I figured ya might wanna know that, apparently, he shaved off his trademark lip-and-chin-dusters yesterday…

    Here’s a link to Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel NewsWatch where ya can see a picture of said facial hair, intact, and on a nice white background suitable for framing:

    I don’t think you could go wrong with dunkin’ with Chris Duncan.
