2008 NOTY: The Sweet 16

And so it is time to say goodbye to some NOTY High Committee favorites, vanquished in the second round. Farewell, Rockefellow Johnson. It was fun while it lasted, Jeremiah Kilimanjaro. You did sub-Saharan Africa proud, Thankgod Amaefule. And little Poony Poon? We might have loved you best of all.

But you're out. And 16 worthier names are in. We've apparently got competition from some other tournament that also uses brackets. So here's the plan for the Sweet 16: Starting today and for the next couple of days, we'll post the eight remaining games in the four regionals. Then we're going on vacation. So make sure everyone votes while we're away.

Here are your Sweet 16 match-ups:

No. 1 Destiny Frankenstein v. No. 5 Firm Dinkins
No. 14 Urban Couch v. No. 10 Spaceman Africa
