2010 NOTY: Dragonwagon Regional, Part 1

Balloting in the Bulltron Regional is officially closed. The No. 1 and 2 seeds -- Nohjay Nimpson and X'Zavier Bloodsaw -- move on to the Sweet 16 with, respectively, 40 percent and 50 percent of the vote in their quadrants. (Farewell, Lolita Respectnothing; the tip of the tongue took a trip much too short.)

A couple of upsets in the other two quadrants: No. 12 Sequoyah Stonecipher romped, while No. 14 Cynammon Crabb ended the dream Hannukkah Wallace-Hitler Makofane second-round matchup, and took out Stalin Felipe, too. Clearly, Hannukkah, Hitler and Stalin divided the vote.

On to the Dragonwagon Regional, named for our good friend, 1993 NOTY Crescent Dragonwagon. Vote for one:

No. 1 Spontaneous Gordon: Delaware woman who crashed her car into a parked bus.
No. 16 Shy Ely: NBDL guard. Full name: Shyron Quonell Ely. Son of Shy-Quon and Jean Ely.
No. 8 King Jamell Modest: Albany teen murder suspect.
No. 9 Gregor Schwinghammer Jr.: Florida lawyer.
