The North End Zone Tournament Challenge Update

With all this TV Theme excitement going around, we almost forgot about the REAL tournament going on. And by that we mean the North End Zone Tournament Challenge.

Currently, two contributors (Wright and The Northerner) sit atop the standings. I’m reluctant to call Wright a contributor, but technically his name is on the side banner.

In 3rd is avid reader Maniak with a very clever HandsInYourBro’s Pants team name. If you didn’t get the joke at first, he was sure to include the word “gay” in parenthesis.

Tied for 4th are what appears to be St. Louis Shark (I always thought they were in San Jose, but whatevs) and our Hokie now living in Africa. So for all of us ranked lower than 4th, we should feel proud to be losing to a guy with no TV and 1 hour of internet a week.

Your humble editor and his father are tied for 6th. He has threatened to limit me to 1 hour a day of Super Mario Bros. 3 if he doesn’t beat me.

And jumping all the way to the bottom is our good friend Alison, more lovingly referred to as “Frake-Nasty” (you don’t want to know the origins of that). But with her final four of Michigan State, Pittsburgh, Mizzou, and Syracuse still alive, anything can happen… or so she keeps telling herself.

So let the games begin, and get ready to throw away that bracket at any time.

Good luck to all participants.


I forgot to mention that avid reader A. Young is leading the sad, pathetic NIT bracket we’re still keeping track of. And people think that we need girlfriends. Pssh.

    Ha, I didn’t know there were all those people in the pool. I though there was only 10 people total.

    Though everyone after “Athena” have got to be feeling good about themselves that they’re getting beat by someone who had Florida State in the Championship Game and forgot to pick a winner.

  2. C Gally Says:

    Yeah, Athena was already made fun for that. Took guts to take the ‘Noles all that way, I must say.

  3. The Northerner Says:

    Well, to the Championship game at least. Apparently, the final was either going to end in a tie or get called off.

  4. C Gally Says:

    If the Championship game is called off, does that make her automatically the winner? I feel like it should.

  5. The Northerner Says:

    I say we go with that. If that happens, we should also all get one big spearhead tatooed to our backs so that it’s only complete when everyone is standing side-to-side in a line.

  6. C Gally Says:

    I’m not too sure where that came from, but I’m in. As long as I go last. I don’t want to get screwed over like that head shaving incident.
