Strike A Blow For Freedom, Or Something

So, the guys over at Brock and Salk are doing their annual media bracket tournament thing, pitting local sports folks against each in head to head contests to determine the most… I don’t know, most willing to promote their show in an effort to get votes? I figured I’d get slaughtered by Brad Adam and his amazing hair in round one, so I didn’t bother to put up much of a fight, but amazingly, I somehow overcame his locks of goodness and have moved on to round two.

And now, we have a real war on our hands, because Jeff Sullivan pulled off the dramatic 16 over 1 upset, and is now my opponent in round two. Yes, Jeff and I are “friends” – err, I just realized putting that in quotes might have some connotations that I didn’t intend, so just ignore the air quotes – but he’s also part of an evil blog conglomeration that is, I’ve heard, part of the illuminati. Also, he’s from California. We must stand up to his tyranny.

Vote for me. Not Jeff, me. Vote Me!

Note: Jeff and I will be slagging each other on the air at 10:10 am. Tune in to hear good friends tell the world how awful the other is.

    Who did Jeff beat?

    A truly selfless person, and thus worthy of one’s vote, would instead use their entire airtime to sing the praises of Larry Stone and Shannon Drayer, encouraging people to vote for them.

    was geoff Baker defeated in round 1? or is he not enough of a writer to even make the ballot?

    lesch2k – Muckraker Baker was eliminated in the first round, as is proper.

    Man, check that manliness-macho smack-down that is the Brock Huard-Bill Krueger contest.

    I voted for Dave because I saw a bazillion tweets from him telling me to vote for him and absolutely none from Jeff.

    Of course, the fact that I follow Dave and don’t follow Jeff may have had something to do with that…

    I voted for Dave, but it was a tough decision.

    Jeff is more active, locally, these days. But that would be like voting for your nephew over your grandpa. Wow, that was an awful analogy. I mean, I read USSM before LL. And Dave is like my hero. Okay, I’ll stop typing now.

    (One more thing actually: Dave, Jeff, Stone and Johns are all in the Calabro region instead of the Niehaus region. This seeding must have been modeled after the NCAA’s logic.)

    If you want to hear Jeff’s highly offensive comparison of my life threatening disease to the death of his pets, the audio is now up on

    Fast forward to the 11:00 minute mark for our blogger on blogger hatefest.

    Voted. Dave Cameron, no contest- although no disrespect to Jeff. Shannon Drayer and Larry Stone were my other two “don’t-even-have-to-think-about-it” locks.

    I’m writing in a vote for Bucky Jacobsen. Hey, I’ve got a genuine autographed Bucky-ball, one of my prized possessions.

    The new pet parakeet remark on today’s Fangraphs chat had me cracking up. Well done, Dave.

    Jeff Sullivan has moved on to the finals of the Kevin Calabro region where he is running neck and neck with Matt Pitman.
