Given the opportunity, what could you do in a professional sporting event? List what position you'd play, how much "time" you'd require, and what you could accomplish.

I know I could hit three 3-pointers in an NBA game if I was on the court for an entire game.

I know how the double switch works, so I could be a better in game strategist than John Farrell.

I could be a third-base umpire for an entire game without making a noticeable error.

Baseball manager who would change pitchers after every batter. Thinking I would be fired by the 4th inning of the first game.

I could probably take a pk successfully against a bad keeper.

I could score in the nhl if someone put the puck on my stick.

Yeah, I feel like, given enough power play time with my only purpose being to go to the front of the net, a puck is bound to go off me to get me a point eventually. There's a good chance I would get severely injured before ever getting to that point, though.

In baseball, there are a lot of guys I could pinch-run for. I wouldn't be very good at it, but I would be better than letting Albert Pujols run or something.

I could maybe hit a free throw if I could manage to draw a foul.

As a former high school pitcher, I think I could "get out" a lesser hitting National League pitcher

Baseball - before I blew out my elbow I could have easily played low level minor league baseball. I was a pitcher and centerfielder.

Basketball - I can shoot, so I’d definitely say I could make an open three.

Football - Given enough time, I could complete a pass to an open receiver. I could also make a field goal or punt the ball.

Golf - I could hit the fairway with a tee shot.

Bowling - I’m an above average bowler.

Downhill Skiing - I could complete a downhill run without issue, just not at competitive speed.

Hockey - Nope.

that assumes you're wide open the majority of the time. because if not, there's not a chance you could. and even if so, it's really different shooting in an arena with basketball stanchions and a huge crowd in the background. the depth perception is completely different.
