Dragonwagon Regional Round 2: #1 Dr. Suparman Marzuki vs. #8 DustyRust; #5 Twollie Vanderwerf vs. #4 Smokey Don Pipes
Just 24 names remain in the 2013 Name of the Year tournament. By the end of this week, we will be down to 16.
Another top seed is under fire as Dr. Suparman Marzuki moves past his triumph over Dickie Lee Hullinghorst to battle Dusty Rust, the dispatcher of Blaze Caponegro. Suparman has few weaknesses, but Mr. Rust may be able to exploit one of them if his dust happens to be of the crushed-up kryptonite variety. Can the Louisianian college football player pull the upset?
Elsewhere, Smokey Don Pipes will look to follow up his commanding round one victory over Dreamius Smith by taking out Twollie Vanderwerf. Smokey Don seems like an awfully strong four seed at this point; he's the 2013 Michigan Wolverines of our bracket. Twollie, who previously outlasted Necho Beard, is simply a Minnesota man whose name was submitted by his wife. He may not have the bravado of his opponent, but he has the modest backstory needed to spin a textbook David vs. Goliath tale.
