Qutie shocked that the baseball bat wasn't chosen by either baseball fan.

Poz seemed to prefer creative inventions that were designed to solve very specific (small) problems, and I guess the bat didn't qualify.

Both Poz and Schur seemed to agree that if the Zamboni pick survived scrutiny by the Rules Committee, Poz won the draft. (The issue of course being that it is not equipment used by the actual players.) (Or, at least, one hopes not.)
