If you could play one game as a professional athlete

What sport and which position would you pick.

You are you; not inhabiting LeBron or something like that. Just your regular old self plopped into a starting role for a game of your choice. For this exercise we will be limiting it to the major professional team sports of America, so no soccer gayness and no shooting a 200 at the masters for shits and giggles.

I'm gonna go as a hockey goalie for a game. Would love to experience the pandemonium of that, plus you're padded to the point of being able to survive.

This is tough.

I wanna say NBA because I always love playing pick up basketball. I couldn't do much at all but I'm decently strong and would have a low center of gravity compared to everyone else on the court so I could at least (attempt) to box out some mofos. They would just reach their 4 foot arms over my head and snag the rebound anyway

Relief lefty.

and hope lie hell the coach doesn’t try the lefty/lefty, righty/righty BS late in the game. I’d intentionally hit my lefty batter in the back first pitch and let the next guy clean up my mess.

What would the speed of said pitch be?

I was decent enough to catch all the way through college. So I’d say let me see the field one time in the show (moonlight Graham style). Wouldn’t totally embarrass myself and I might luck into an oppo field slap single since I damn sure would not be able to barrel up the heat these fuckers throw today.

NFL - used to play WR/TE back in the day.

Split me way out, no one on my side, fake a quick slant, then chuck it an see if I can get under it - no way the S is sneaking to my side, so shouldn't end up in the ER
