  • Bubbles Busted: Otter, Cheetah, Crocodile (!), Peacock

Fan Pulse
  • "OTTERS ARE THE VIRGINIA TECH OF THIS BRACKET. NO RESPECT FROM THE SELECTION COMMITTEEEEEE" (meechone, via Twitter @mammalmadness)
  • "Frankly, I'm surprised to see Gorilla seeded that low. I guess it lost too many out-of-paddock matchups." (Jay Bilas, ESPN)
  • "Red Panda is like Butler. You never really think of them, but there they are every year." (Slate.com)
  • "Do NOT rule out Giraffe. Their height is going to be very hard to match up against, and they are going to be a tough out for anyone who has to face them." (John Gonzalez, Philadelphia Inquirer)

  1. So I filled out my bracket with the assumption that it was a death match style thingy... was that the wrong way to go? Or is this pretty much open to interpretation?

    Also, congrats on making The Phield in your first season of sanctioned play! Tough first-round matchup, though.

  2. I think how one fills it out is up to one's own interpretation. Myself, I'm going by that familiar maxim: vote for the most awesomest of them all. King Cobras KICK ASS.

  3. it's completely open to interpretation. how you choose fill out your bracket will likely reveal a lot about your personality, and we of course will interpret every pick you make in a bolg post and deliver a complete psychoanalysis likely to make you cry. but seriously, i still can't believe OTTER got snubbed by the committee.

    How the F do you fill this thing out? Is there a file with fields to enter shit into, or do I actually have to type all this out?
