I would have handed that check right back to Kate Upton and said "Now show me your titties!"

To give up a million bucks, I'd have to give her a full gyno exam.

Ahh, so they basically did what MLB did for years, they buried their heads in the sand and hoped it would just go away.

If it's a feature of the game, and the company wigs out over it, they set themselves up to look pretty stupid. Better to take it in stride and move on.

How long until the NCAA declares him ineligible?

As far as we know, this guy did not cheat to get into the final.

He's not an NCAA student-athlete. He's at a community college.

I haven't played any sports video games in years, but the way I remembered it in any game if you were playing the computer you could make all the changes you wanted to the computer's lineup.

I bought a 360 in 2008 because I thought that year's 2K game would be an upgrade over the then-4-years-old-and-on-a-previous-generation-console MVP 2005. Within 2 weeks, I had gotten rid of the game and the 360.

The $1 mil prize wouldn't be worth it for having to play that game, assuming they haven't made a complete overhaul in the last few years (and, judging from the reviews, they haven't). The Show, on the other hand, rocks.

The intent in the Million Dollar Challenge mode was to take a pitcher who would be pitching that day and throwing a perfect game against the lineup they'd face. They gave you a difficulty score before the game started that took your pitcher's ability and the strength of the opposing lineup into account, with weaker pitchers and stronger opposing lineups leading to higher scores. If you made any changes to the opponent's lineup during the game, it would DQ the attempt. They put that wording in the unofficial contest primer, but not the official rules.

The problem is that there was a bug/glitch where you could make changes to the opposing lineup before the game began and it would not DQ the attempt. Not only that, but you'd still get credit for facing big bats on a good-hitting team, even if you take their best players out.
