It wasn't even close.
With a shocking rout of No. 11 seed Monsterville Horton IV, Dragonwagon Regional No. 2 Taco B.M. Monster announced himself as the favorite to flash the sign of the championship belt in balloting for the 2011 Name of the Year.
(Speaking of Dragonwagon, our very Crescent was just on public radio, talking beans—she's just written a book about them—with Tom Ashbrook of WBUR's "On Point." We love you, Crescent!)
Meanwhile, in light voting in the Chrotchtangle Regional—light, of course, because we've alienated our once-huge audience with these dilatory proceedings—the last remaining No. 1 seed, La'Peaches Pitts, went down by six votes, 323-317, to No. 13 Neptune Pringle III. Must have been the video.
