Make a Million Bucks, The Hard Way


This specific pile of money could be yours.

Remember how last year the company that made the baseball video game “MLB 2K10” gave $1,000,000 to the first guy to pitch a perfecto in the game? And how this generated publicity?

Well I guess it generated >=$1M worth of publicity, because 2K Sports is running basically the same promotion for this year’s “MLB 2K11.”

I might just feel this way because I’m the restless, maverick, pioneer-vagabond-trailblazer type, but wouldn’t it be cooler if the $1M accomplishment were switched up for 2011?

There must be hundreds of tough goals besides “perfect game” that could decide which unhealthily dedicated gamer gets a huge nonsensical windfall. For example, 2K Sports could give $1M to the first person to:

• Hit an inside-the-park home run with Pablo Sandoval
• Win the NL East in season mode using not-the-Phillies
• Pitch a perfect game with virtual Jim Joyce as part of the umpiring crew (snap!)
• Prevent Adrian Gonzalez from doubling off the virtual Green Monster for a whole game (good freahkin’ luck! Go Sox!)

How about recreating Bengie Molina’s cycle?

Or perhaps for an extra $500,000 pitch a perfect game using only Dave Bush

Use Aaron Rowand to hit a slider.
Score 6 runs with the Seattle Mariners offense.
Go a whole series without giving up a homerun with the Brewers pitching staff.
Score a run off Cliff Lee in Safeco.

How about some season-long goals? That’d get the gamers really hooked on the product.

Get Ryan Theriot to hit above a .100 ISO

Win the division with either Kansas City or Pittsburgh

Pick a franchise, sign Jason Giambi, and get him to win the league MVP award

Lead the league in walks with Jeff Francoeur
