2010 NOTY: Sweet 16

As promised, we kept balloting in the final quadrants of the first round open until precisely midnight, and with good reason. The Chrotchtangle Regional battle between No. 7 Furious Bradley and No. 15 Pat Angerer was the closest race in NOTY history.

Final tally: Angerer 758, Bradley 755.

Drafted into the NFL, advancing in NOTY. Surely this was the greatest day in the life of one Pat Angerer. But let's also recognize Charity Beaver, who became the first No. 16 seed in NOTY history to take out a No. 1 (the great Just-in'love Smith).

Here are your Sweet 16 match-ups:

Bulltron Regional
No. 1 Nohjay Nimpson v. No. 12 Sequoyah Stonecipher
No. 14 Cynnamon Crabb v. No. 2 X'Zavier Bloodsaw

Sithole Regional
No. 1 God's Power Offor v. No. 4 ShaMiracle Johnson
No. 11 Banana Yaya v. No. 2 Tronic Williams

Dragonwagon Regional
No. 1 Spontaneous Gordon v. No. 4 Steele Sidebottom
No. 3 Starzanne Stipes v. No. 15 Pamela Balls Organista

Chrotchtangle Regional
No. 16 Charity Beaver v. No. 4 Spartacus Bernstein
No. 3 Pencilman Jeffries v. No. 15 Pat Angerer

10 a.m. update: Some late votes may appear to have pushed Furious Bradley past Pat Angerer. They don't count. Angerer wins.

  1. Interesting bracket.. It's nice to see Angerer and Sidebottom creating this much of a buzz, but I hope this doesn't interfere with the integrity of this competition. Not that there is a truly objective standard by which to determine what makes a good name, but I don't think the two names have what it takes in and of themselves. Despite this, I have Sidebottom over the Jewish gladiator Spartacus Bernstein in the final four. Justice (Offor) will be served in the end, though, as God's Power will best Nohjay Nimpson and creep past Sidebottom in the finale. This is a hot year.

  2. I have never disagreed with the rest of the people more than this. Furious Bradley and Selathious Bobo are out? This deserves outrage.

  3. The people did choose Furious Bradley. Outside of Iowa he was the easy winner, even if you also take away votes from Bradley's home state. After the initial surge from Iowa fans, he's been catching up - yesterday morning he was down by about 100 votes, and ended up 3 short at midnight. Let the vote go through the weekend and he ends up on top.

  4. I agree that Furious Bradley and Selathious Bobo totally deserve to continue. What are people thinking giving into stupid regional favoritism just because some guy is from their home state. JRV, I have to disagree with your claim that there isn't a, "truly objective standard by which to determine what makes a good name". I think that it becomes objective once you put aside favoritism based on the person's life/actions. If you decide solely based on the name, itself, I think that's objective. Be objective, people.

  5. Pat Angerer is the new George W. Bush, and Iowa is the new Florida. That is all.

  6. How about, in future years, expanding the tournament to 68 teams and having four play-in games that include some teams from the previous year or recent previous years that didn't win? That might give Furious Bradley and Selathious Bobo another shot at glory . . .

  7. I think the biggest upsets have been Bloodsaw over Dr. Speedy Nutz, and ShaMiracle Johnson beating anyone. Am I missing something? Why is ShaMiracle a good/funny/or intersting name?

  8. It seems like Charity Beaver has a home court advantage in the Crotchtangle Regional.

  9. That Selathious Bobo was defeated at all, much less so early, is a travesty of a mockery of a mockery of a travesty of a sham. How DARE you?

  10. Neither Furious Bradley nor Pat Angerer are that great, so let's not get so upset Furious lost. Neither will beat Pencilman, even with a regional bias.

  11. The people got several things wrong, but 2 of the 3 best names are still alive. Let's stop wasting time and get to the 2010 final: Tronic Williams vs. Spartacus Bernstein

  12. Anonymous, who are you to doubt God's Power? Some nominal heathen? Your reluctance even to reveal your own name betrays your true fear.

    I will say that I agree with you about Spartacus Bernstein, though. I am already looking forward to next year's competition, when other Roman jews might be tempted to come out of the closet and participate. Spartacus Bernstein, if he makes it to the final, will surely inspire confidence in people we don't even know about yet, like Crixus Goldberg, Augustus Julius Schneider, Colossus Katz and Septimius Severus Liebowitz. One can only dream..

  13. BEWARE the return of Selathious Bobo, Grand Vizier of the Steampunk Empire!

    In the meantime, GO NOHJAY!

  15. It's actually wow gold quite simple rift platinum (in theory)...Obama can veto rift Gold appropriation bills until the cows come home but he can't rift platinum force Congress to add anything to the rift Gold bills by vetoing them. What rift platinum Obama can do is force a government shut down like Clinton rift platinum did in the '90s rift Gold as a way to bring pressure rift platinum on the Republicans rift Gold to add money in. Then the media arm of the DNC (aka ABC, CBS, NBC, etc) go into rift platinum action a show all the rift power leveling horrible things that happen when people don't get rift Gold their government money.
