This or That: 1880's Baseball Player or Harlem Globetrotter

This week's This or That started off as 1920's Baseball Player or 70's Porn Star. Then I realized the Wiki didn't have a whole bunch of just 70's porn stars listed, and since most of the poll is done at work, much deeper research was unavailable. Then it became 1920's Baseball Player or anytime Porn Star, when I realized the best names were from the 1880's (and best pictures. Check out Tug Arundel and his amazing mustache). When I realized the Porn Star names wouldn't cut it, somehow I got on to a wiki about Scooby Doo, and from there, naturally, the Globetrotters. So there ya have it. That's how these things happen.

As always, the answers are behind the cut if you still want to play.

William "Buck" Ewing: 1880's Baseball Player. Who also has an amazing card.
Woodrow "Woody" Sauldsberry: Harlem Globetrotter.
William H. "Adonis" Terry: 1880's Baseball Player.
William "Pop" Gates: Harlem Globetrotter.
Ferguson Arthur "Fergie" Jenkins: Harlem Globetrotter.
Frank George "Noodles" Hahn: 1880's Baseball Player.
George "Meadowlark" Lemon: Harlem Globetrotter.
William "Brickyard" Kennedy: 1880's Baseball Player.
Walter L. "Mother" Watson: 1880's Baseball Player.
Reece "Goose" Tatum: Harlem Globetrotter.
John Good "Long John" Reilly: 1880's Baseball Player.
James William "Ducky" Holmes: 1880's Baseball Player.
Nathaniel "Sweetwater" Clifton: Harlem Globetrotter.

Perhaps all the failed attempts on my part were worth it. You guys got absolutely spanked this week. In Infectious Disease or Ikea Product, the lowest score was a 6/13. My Little Pony or Bath and Body Works Scent: 6/15. Scandinavian Death Metal Band or Atari 2600 Game: 7/13.

My hat goes off (and my tube socks go up for) first time This or That participant, piperlemons who struck out most thoroughly with a 3/13. There's no joy in Mordor today, folks.

The Home Run Queen of the week, darkymoore layed up a solid 12/13!

veejay has the rebound with 10/13!

And if one more person tied for 3rd, they could take on the Globetrotters: ao, mac, absolutcalm, and coldblackncold all knocked out a strong 8/13!

And fortunately I've run out of basketaball puns just in time to say, bang bang, good game, way to hit'em, and [something people say to encourage basketball players].
