We used to do hockey player tournaments each year during March Madness. I believe Cam Neely and Dion Phaneuf were the past two champs. For some reason (I'm gonna guess it was gin), we didn't do a tournament this year. So we owe you one.
But instead of hockey players, we're gonna roll with superheroes. The idea stemmed from a discussion over on the Dave Dameshek Message Boards. Myself, Cousin Brandon, and a few other loyal Dameshek listeners started kicking around the idea of a tournament, so I went ahead and set up a bracket.
You'll notice no female superheroes are included in the seedings. This was a point of intense debate. In the end, I consulted the wisest man I know for advice on the matter. That's right. I asked The Ed.
The Ed stated, and I quote, "What do women know about flying and fighting tigers and stuff." Done and done. No broads allowed.
I'll give you two weeks to fill out your brackets. Just send an email with your picks to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Beginning July 28, we'll start posting the winners of each round until we crown a champion.
The lucky soul who submits the most accurate bracket will win an LCS Hockey T-shirt and a little hockey player with a big head. You know you're excited.
(NOTE: I really didn't make it too clear the first time around, but send me your picks for the entire bracket. Like run it right through the Final Four and pick a winner. Thanks.)
