GAMERS SAY: You MIGHT Not Be Playing Enough Strat If …
The first part of this article can be found here. We had some suggestions for symptoms of a Strat player who may not be playing enough Strat and we asked if there were other telltale signs. Here are some of your suggestions…
-You no longer need to wear your carpal tunnel braces on your dice rolling hand
1 – You see a double play grounder at a Major League Park and immediately think "GBA"
2 – An outfielder leaps and misses a barely escaped Home Run and you think "At the wall chart"
3 – A football player injured means three of the same number were rolled on the three dice
4 – You accuse a Quarterback of underthrowing the "long pass" area
5 – You mentally draw a split-card during a Hockey game when a defenseman tries to intimidate a forward from entering deeper into the zone.
6 – You associate a Wild Pitch with a one or two being first thrown by the twenty side die.
7 – A goalie giving up a rebound shot makes you think an eight must’ve been rolled on the initial shot.
8 – Your list of wanted old-timer seasons, far exceeds your number of creditors
