So much for the Iron Throne. How about a Plastic Throne instead?
The Iron Throne stood solid on HBO’s Game of Thrones for eight years, but in the end, it wasn’t able to stand up to heat very well. However, the assorted plastic bats used to build a Plastic Throne would be able to handle Wiffle Ball heaters from our flamethrower pitchers time and again.
So what purpose would it serve? Well, if you use rotisserie scoring like us, the player that’s leading in the standings gets to sit in it, ruling over everyone else in the league (except for the Commissioner, of course).
Or maybe share it for different events. Have a Home Run Derby, call it a Game of Homers, and let the winner sit on the throne as Home Run King or Queen.
An all yellow Wiffle Bat throne would look most impressive. Are any of our fans interested in building one? I would pay for that. Contact me on Twitter (@shaunbreen) if you have the skills to make that happen. We could even try selling them here.
