The hour is getting late. Very soon time will run out on another successful weekend here at Awful Announcing. It would be wrong of me to allow that to happen without addressing what may well be the most important thing that happened under my watch:
The first round of the Ladies... Hot Blogger Tournament came to an end.
All six members of the News Team entered the fight with high hopes. With voting concluded, however, we now mourn our first casualty.
The Extrapolater, Extra P, is a fine writer, and even finer representative to the bearded community, but for some reason, the voters didn't see it that way. Faced with a tough first round draw (Kissing Suzy Kolber's Monday Morning Punter, the man who brought us "Free Crackers For Fitty"), E overcame the odds to put up a tough fight before running out of time. If only he had a cuter kid.
Anyway, the rest of us move on to the next round. In the MAC Bracket, I topped Paul from The Happy Recap, 70%-30% and Signal to Noise pulled away from Manning Family Reunion's Satchmo for the 53%-47% win.
In the NL West Bracket, Awful Announcing dominated Dave from Dave's Football Blog to the tune of 79%-21% and Just Call Me Juice's Marco handled Breaking the Press's Swellesey 63%-37%.
Finally, in the AFC North, Run Up The Score struck a blow for out-of-shape bloggers everywhere with a 55%-45% upset win over Being Sven's Sven and his six-pack abs. RUTS truly deserves a slow clap-turned-standing ovation for his efforts this round.
Check out Ladies... this week for the next round matchups.
