Cartoon Thunderdome – All Hail King Homer!!

April 30, 2008
HOMER SIMPSON WINS INAUGURAL THUNDERDOME TOURNAMENT

After more than 200 votes from you, Homer Simpson defeated Eric Cartman in the Championship round to become the first-ever Thunderdome Champion. The newly crowned king of cartoons knocked off the megalomaniacal child from South Park with a 115-97 victory.

Things seemed dim for Eric early on, as Homer jumped out to a 30+ voting advantage. However, despite recommendations to end the matchup, voting continued, and Cartman pulled within single digit votes of Simpson. But he would get no closer, and thanks to everyone’s input, America’s favorite dad from Springfield stands alone.
I thank everyone for voting and hope that you enjoyed Thunderdome ‘08. Don’t worry though, because Thunderdome ’09 will be in full force come next March.

A big thank you to Steve and everyone that voted. This was pretty awesome, and Steve quadrupled his number of posts on the site. And seriously, 200 people? Yeesh. That may seem small time for some sites, but for our little outfit here, that’s a little overwhelming.

Now sit back and be prepared for hockey and baseball posts…. is it football season yet?

Cartoon Madness – FINALS

April 23, 2008

(new survey: https://survey.vt.edu/survey/entry.jsp?id=1208976262761)

THUNDERDOME CHAMPIONSHIP SET
Thanks to a record number of votes in the Final Four, we now have our Thunderdome Championship set: Homer Simpson vs. Eric Cartman. Both had impressive wins in the semifinals, and both have had to go through some pretty stiff competition to get to this point. Homer has had to oust Michelangelo, Pinky and the Brain, and Peter Griffin, among others, while Cartman had to knock off Leonardo, Quagmire, and Optimus Prime.
So it all comes down to this. 65 to 2. To become the first and undisputed Thunderdome Champion. On one side, you have a guy who sits on his couch with a beer and a bowl full of chili. On the other, you have a kid who chops up bullies’ parents into chili. Both have had successful movies. Both have coined popular catch phrases. Both give the FCC hell with their constant swearing on national television. But only one can walk away with all the marbles.
Again, I thank each of you for voting. I think this has been a fun activity for the past two months for me (largely because it distracts me from doing my work), and I hope you have enjoyed it as well. I’m sure everyone is excited for Thunderdome ’09 (theme in progress). And as always, please tell your friends to vote, as it has been proven that every vote counts.
