The Potsie Hall of Shame

Potsie Pic

Poor, poor Potsie... Though he usually tries his darndest, he just cannot stop himself from doing something stupid in RBI. The man is a rock - give him enough games (and beers) in a night, and he'll pull off the mind-numbingly awful play. The uninitiated would attribute this to dumb luck or a momentary lapse in judgement, but these people don't know Potsie. You want the truth? You can't handle Potsie's truth!!!!

This is just a taste of what Potsie has pulled off. Mind you, all of these impressive feats are unique to Potsie, nobody else has sunk so low:
