Traditional Sports Translations for LoL Finals

Hey eSports fans (all three of you)! This Sunday is the League of Legends Finals. In a best of 5, TSM will take on Immortals (IMT). Both teams have already earned their spots into Worlds this fall, but first they must battle it out in Boston. The LoL finals air Sunday at 2pm.

TSM is fighting for a dynasty. This will be their 9th NA LCS Finals in a row. Winning would make them champions three splits in a row. IMT, on the other hand, is making their first finals appearance, though many individual players have made it on previous teams. IMT wants to upset the LoL titans.

For those of you who may be unfamiliar with League of Legends, I’m going to give you some quick translations to your sport.

LoL Finals (Football)

TSM (The Patriots) vs IMT (The Cowboys)

IMT (The Cowboys) have some great players and their rookie ADC (rookie QB), Cody Sun (Dak Prescott), is a star. However, he’s just not Doublelift (Tom Brady). TSM’s (Pat’s) mid laner (tight end), Bjergsen (Gronkowski) is a threat all over the rift (field). For IMT (the Cowboys), winning the pick/ban (running the right plays) is a must. IMT (The Cowboys) need to play to their strengths and ward (deep coverage) against TSM’s (the Patriot’s) extremely proficient roams (spread offense). If IMT (the Cowboys) can use their aggressive top laner (safety), Flame (Jeff Heath? Idk), to draw TSM’s (the Patriot’s) attention away from snowballing their bot lane (wide recievers), IMT (the Cowboys) will have a chance to take down the champions and truly become immortal.

LoL Finals (Hockey)

TSM (The Penguins) vs IMT (The Maple Leafs)

IMT (the Leafs) have some great players and their rookie ADC (rookie center), Cody Sun (Auston Matthews), is a star. However, he’s just not Doublelift (Sidney Crosby). TSM’s (Pen’s) mid laner (Assistant Captain), Bjergsen (Malkin) is a threat all over the rift (ice). For IMT (the Leafs), winning the pick/ban (faceoffs) is a must. IMT (The Leafs) need to play to their strengths and ward (defend) against TSM’s (the Penguin’s) extremely proficient roams (wingers). If IMT (the Leafs) can use their aggressive top laner (D-man), Flame (Jake Gardiner), to draw TSM’s (the Penguin’s) attention away from snowballing their bot lane (forwards), IMT (the Leafs) will have a chance to take down the champions and truly become immortal.

Lol Finals (Baseball)

TSM (The Dodgers) vs IMT (The Orioles)

IMT (the Orioles’) have some great players and their rookie ADC (rookie), Cody Sun (Trey Mancini), is a star. However, he’s just not Doublelift (Cody Bellinger). TSM’s (The Dodger’s) mid laner (lead-off), Bjergsen (Seager) is a threat all over the rift (field). For IMT (the Orioles’), winning the pick/ban (a strong bench and ‘pen) is a must. IMT (the Orioles’) need to play to their strengths and ward (be patient) against TSM’s (The Dodger’s) extremely proficient roams (pitching). If IMT (the Orioles’) can use their aggressive top laner (power hitter), Flame (Manny Machado), to draw TSM’s (The Dodger’s) attention away from snowballing their bot lane (letting the Dodger’s pitchers settle in), IMT (the Orioles’) will have a chance to take down the champions and truly become immortal.

LoL Finals (Basketball)

TSM (GSW) vs IMT (The 76ers)

IMT (The 76ers) have some great players and their rookie ADC (rookie), Cody Sun (Joel Embiid), is a star. However, he’s just not Doublelift (Kevin Durant). TSM’s (GSW’s) mid laner (Guard), Bjergsen (Curry) is a threat all over the rift (court). For IMT (The 76ers), winning the pick/ban (countering small-ball lineup) is a must. IMT (The 76ers) need to play to their strengths and ward (defend the three) against TSM’s (GSW’s) extremely proficient roams (shooters). If IMT (The 76ers) can use their aggressive top laner (small forward), Flame (Jerami Grant), to draw TSM’s (GSW’s) attention away from snowballing their bot lane (splash bros), IMT (The 76ers) will have a chance to take down the champions and truly become immortal.
