So here it is folks, the BrooWaha Deathmath... the genius of Bill Friday combined with my unimaginable lack of social options on St. Patty's day has bore this - another, less meaningful way to waste your time this tournament season. Eight (8) automatic bids – one for each of
the top “Editions” of the Broo, awarded to the most read author in that
division and twenty four (24) “at large” bids determined by the selection
committee (consisting mostly of me). Selection critera was mostly the top twenty five (25) Broo writers ever - and some honorable mention folks that just couldn't be left out:
In the West Coast Division:
1. Ed Attansio
2. Steven Lane
3. M.B. Dion
4. D.E. Carson
5. Pleasure Palate
6. Charles Harmison
7. Gary Schwind
8. PLAY IN WINNER – (Dr. Traci vs Mora Ulman)
In the East Coast Division
2. Brad Fink
3. Joseph Mael
4. Jen & Tonic
8. PLAY IN WINNER – (Crowbar vs Tumerica)
In the Red State Division
1. Chris Jones
3. Bill Friday
5. Rose Mountain
6. DL Fergson

2. I wisdom
4. El G
7. Glenn T
8. PLAY IN WINNER (Mean Mike Duffau vs Jen)
There was actually some method to my madness, although I don't feel compelled to explain it, but rather leave it to the same conspiracy theorists who believe that the old men who select NCAA Men's Basketball teams for their tournament actually set up particular match-ups for "storyline value". To put it simply - Edition winners got to stay home, and the rest was a "quality spread"... Of course there were some snubs - feel free to let me know who they were.
Provided that there is some significant feedback here - I'll pick winners for each round - based on votes, messages, comments, and my own distorted sense of justice.
The brackets are available here:
Where you can make predictions and print it out if you like...
Play in winners will be selected on Tuesday night/Weds morning:
Dr. Traci vs Mora Ulman
Crowbar vs Tumerica
Baynurse vs Jeff Weisinger
Mean Mike Duffau vs Jen
...and I may even post some sort of justification.
Above all, have fun - try to behave (to whatever extent you can) and remember, I'll probably just let Ariel win so he'll let me keep writing.
