Sithole Regional, Sweet Sixteen: #1 Baby Swinger vs. #5 NormanConquest, #6 Pooky Amsterdam vs. #2 McWisdom Badejo
The mensches over at the Filmdrunk Frotcast, who've been following along with our game, commented a while ago that the Sithole was the weakest region of the bracket. This is becoming clearer as we separate the wheat from the chaff. We're not losing sleep over it; no bracket is perfectly balanced.
Starting off the Sithole Sweet Sixteen is Baby Swinger, who took out Octavia Sheepshanks without much fuss. She's up against Norman Conquest, who last round upset Konockus Sashington, a name I still have trouble saying with a straight face. Who wins?
Elsewhere, McWisdom Badejo's rout of Syndric Steptoe was unexpectedly decisive; I thought Syndric had more fight in him. He'll probably have a harder time with Pooky Amsterdam, who's got some solid momentum.
See you tomorrow in the Dragonwagon. Twittah.
