    The overhead camera in tonight's Pitt-West Virginia game provided a unique look at the way a QB walks up to the line of scrimmage. Made me visualize what a rush that must be, then made me wonder about stepping up to the mic in the other sports.

    Re: The best position?

    I would say the rush from being the starting home pitcher at a playoff game. I can't imagine what the feeling is like when you run out on the field, the fans are going nuts, there is an electricity in the air and your warm pitches have that little extra oomph.

    I prefer when the girl is on to... Oh, um, batter in the bottom of the ninth. Ideally work a full count with bases loaded and team down by three, foul off a mess load of pitches, just missing a couple, and then doing what A-Rod, well, can't: come through, breaking something in dead center in the process.

    My choice isn't an option: Trotting out to the mound at the start of the ninth inning to close out the clinching game of the World Series.

    Specifically, I'd love to be Keith Foulke or Bobby Jenks, trotting out to close out the first World Series championship for their team in almost 90 years. Of course, neither of those guys are deep thinkers, so they probably weren't thinking of the historical ramifcations of the next three outs.

    No sports skills. I'll vote for filling in as Boots, WTF.
