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!
This bracket provided only one upset. Much like in the Head Honcho bracket, my love of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia did not transcend to your votes. Or perhaps I underestimated the Scarecrow’s fan base. Either way, The Wizard of Oz had enough heart to give, and the Scarecrow (#13) beat Mac (#4) overwhelmingly (at the time of this posting), 41-9.
Here are the other voting results (two were very close, one was a blow out):
Paul McCartney (#1) vs. Dipsy (#16) – 15-5
Raphael (#2) vs. Billy Baldwin (#15) – 19-4
Templeton “Faceman” Peck (#3) vs. Micky Dolenz (#14) – 13-7
Samantha Jones (#5) vs. Luigi Mario (#12) – 13-12
Kyle Broflovski (#6) vs. Eric Murphy (#11) – 20-7
George Costanza (#7) vs. The Invisible Woman (#10) – 13-12
Ray Stantz (#8) vs. Randy Jackson (#9) – 31-4
Round 2 of the Second Bananas might contain some of the toughest match-ups. Let’s go!
In a quest to find the greatest foursome composed of members from many foursomes, here’s the appropriately titled second bracket, Second Bananas. These are the guys and the gals that make the Head Honchos look like head honchos. If it was in their nature, they’d be at the top… but they don’t feel like it.
Stayed tuned for the Round Outs and Wild Cards brackets.
