When you have more than 7 million followers on Facebook, it’s not really the best idea to allow all of them to write in answers on a Home Run Derby poll.
ESPN learned this the hard way when someone accidentally left their poll, which asked whom readers thought would win tonight’s Derby, open to write-in answers, allowing “Kwame Brown” and “That’s a Clown Question, bro” to be nominated as contenders.
Interestingly, TACQB ranked above such popular write-ins such as Tim Tebow, LeBron James and Your Mom.
The poll has since been removed, but Deadspin has a screengrab of the debacle. I don’t think I need to warn you that some of the offerings aren’t appropriate for the more sensitive sets of eyeballs.
There were no other D.C. related appearances on the list, which is a shame because I think Teddy would have made an excellent Home Run Derby contender. #LetTeddyHit.
