Awesome Battle… Final Foursome – Final Round, Finally!

NOTE TO SELF: Do not undertake anything like this ever again.  There’s a reason I don’t partake in any sports pools at work – they’re tedious.  Creating and maintaining something similar is no less time-consuming.

That having been said, it’s been interesting and it’s been fun.  There have been definite upsets; there have been close calls.  Some rankings I got right (the Round Outs battle is between the first and second seeds); some I blew completely (or the Wild Cards lived up to their unexpected expectations).  I might have had different (and more varied) outcomes in my mind, but I can’t wait to create the ultimate Final Foursome’s group shot when this is over.

Remember to vote as much as you’d like… and tell your friends!

Awesome Battle… Final Foursome – Head Honchos Edition (Round 2)

(For Round 2 of the Second Bananas bracket, click here.  For the Round Outs bracket, click here.  For Round 2 of the Wild Cards bracket, click here.)

Wow.

Some of these upsets I did not see coming.  But just like the NCAA tournament system this is based on, upsets are what make it interesting.

THE HEAD HONCHOS (Round 1 Results)

– First dead Beatle John Lennon (#1) was pitted against the biggest Teletubby, Tinky Winky, and rightfully so, Lennon won (at the time of this posting), 34-15.

– Moneybags/sour puss Simon Cowell (#2) lost in the first upset of the competition to the Entourage’s nougat center, Vincent Chase (#15).  Not quite a blow-out at 27-17.

– There must be a fair amount of animosity being held against Jerry Seinfeld (#3) for his awful Marriage Ref show.  I didn’t think enough people would remember The Monkees, let alone the group’s breakout heartthrob, Davy Jones (#14) to help him scrape by a win at 24-21.

– The next one was not even close.  Peter Venkman (#4) blew Dorothy Gale (#13) all the way back to Oz with a 47-2 win.

– This one breaks my heart a little bit.  Maybe if the movie remake was already out (and it didn’t suck), John “Hannibal” Smith (#5) would have defeated mushroom-addict, Mario Mario (#12).  Instead, the double-monickered one won, 19-13.

– Alec Baldwin (#6) and Ninja Turtle Leonardo (#11) are a lot alike, if you take away the green color, shell, swords, and business suit.  Don’t believe me?  Imagine it.  The green one loses to the hairy one, 31-17.

– One’s made of paper and one’s made of elastic (kind of).  Stan Marsh (#7) pulls out a victory against Mr. Fantastic (#10), 27-6.

– This battle was upsetting to me.  I love It’s Always Sunny in California, and I’m rather indifferent to Sex and the City.  For those that voted, the opposite must have been true.  Carrie Bradshaw (#9) beats Dennis Reynolds (#8), 26-19.

With that being said, onto round 2!

Awesome Battle… Final Foursome – Head Honcho Edition (Round 1)

I’ve wanted to do an Awesome Battle involving the greatest foursomes in pop culture four some time now.

The foursomes I’ve selected to focus on:

  • The Beatles
  • Ghostbusters
  • The A-Team
  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
  • South Park
  • the cast regulars of Seinfeld
  • The Monkees
  • Fantastic Four
  • the cast regulars of Sex and the City
  • Teletubbies
  • the selectable players of Super Mario Bros. 2 for the NES
  • the Baldwin Brothers
  • the current judges on American Idol
  • the primary cast of The Wizard of Oz
  • the cast regulars of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia (starting with the first season)
  • Entourage

And since we’re in the midst of March Madness, I though what could be better than creating a bracket four finding the best of the best in each of these groups, and make the BEST FOURSOME EVER!

Each Sunday Whenever I get around to it, I’ll post the previous round’s results and the next bracket edition.  To begin, here are the Head Honchos.  Following this will be the Second Bananas, then the Round Outs, and finally the Wild Cards.  Vote as often as you can from any computer you can get to, and tell your friends.  (Please!)

The more votes I get, the more accurate the Final Foursome’s quality will be.
