Bracketology: 3rd Round -- the Sweet Sixteen!
Doug: Now we're getting down to business. I thought it was nice in the latter half of the second round to see three races finish very tightly -- there is anticipation building for some of the match-ups yet to come. I have a couple of questions to pose today. I've attached updated brackets below, and unless you have the crazy things memorized by now, you'll need to consult them in order to answer.
Doug: Here's the first -- as with any tournament, and particularly this one which was set up on somewhat of a blind draw, there can be teams lose "unjustly". By that I mean, and am asking you now -- has there been any event that you feel should have moved on? Is there something important that got left behind solely because it had the misfortune of going against a juggernaut early? A few of our British commenters cited the merits of 2000 AD, for example.
Doug: And here's the second question -- now that we're in the so-called "Sweet Sixteen", is it an appropriate dance card? That is, if you had to name the top 10 or 12 events of the Bronze Age off the top of your head, are they all here?
Doug: And what the heck -- how about one more query? Does anyone want to make any predictions? There are some great match-ups, so let's hear your prognostications!
