Bulltron Regional, Round 1: #6 Dr. David L. Dickensheets vs. #11 Arquimedes Caminero, #3 Skyhawk Fadigan, M.D. vs. #14 Roxanne Stackable
ALERT: Staats Battle has been disqualified. Though the NC State guard's name is real and excellent, we recently learned that he had previously been considered by the NOTY High Committee. In the interest of a fresh tournament, he's been removed. In his place, please welcome Roxanne Stackable to the bracket. More on her in a bit.
First, we open up what is shaping up to be of the most grisly bloodbaths of the first round. The 6-seed is Dr. David L. Dickensheets, doctor at the Infectious Disease Services of Georgia. Whether or not his job title enhances the overall gestalt comes down to personal preference, but even if you're not a fan of the Dr. prefix, there's no denying that this man's last name is Dickensheets.
For what it's worth, the Infectious Disease Services of Georgia is located in Cumming, GA.
He's up against Arquimedes Caminero, a rookie reliever for the Miami Marlins and a late addition to our bracket. Arquimedes replaced the recently DQ'd Bacarri Rambo. I admit that as a huge baseball fan, Arquimedes should've been on my radar much earlier. Instead, like most of South Florida, I've only watched about three innings of Marlins baseball this year. At any rate, he is a worthy contender, and not just because of his 4/1 strikeout-to-walk ratio.
So will Dr. David L. Dickensheets survive? Or will Arquimedes Caminero have a 'Eureka!' moment and pull the upset? You can decide in the poll below:
In our second matchup, we're pitting 3-seed Skyhawk Fadigan, M.D. against the aforementioned Roxanne Stackable. She specializes in family practice and is therefore a personal favorite of all children who wish to have a doctor named SkyHawk. Last time I checked, that's all of them.
We can't, however, count out Roxanne Stackable. A cooking enthusiast, Roxanne would fit well into a Name of the Year superhero fanfic. Perhaps she'd make a fierce love interest for our hero, Johnny Moustache, who together with his dependable sidekick Joe Shortsleeve must save the world from his nemesis, uh, Nemesis Vega.
Will Skyhawk soar above Roxanne? Decide in the poll below, and don't forget to follow us on Twitter @NOTYTourney for all updates. The first round of Bulltron Regional voting ends on Sunday.
