I'm pretty sure something this awesome does not need a reason.

Well done, sir.

Top-notch work. Some thoughts...

We all know a 12 seed takes out at least one 5 seed in the first round. I see Sideshow Mel upsetting the Bumblebee Man.

Most intriguing first round matchup: Prof. Frink (6) vs. Comic Book Guy (11)

Marge should be the first 1 seed to lose, falling to Cletus in the round of 16.

Ralph Wiggum as the 6 seed should make his way to the Elite Eight.

Frank Grimes and Disco Stu get absolutely "Gonzagaed" with those 16 seeds.

Lisa gets a 2 seed behind Mr. Burns...interesting.


If this is what you do at the office, where do I send the resume??

I had to be talked into giving Marge a number one seed. I had Sideshow Bob as the fourth #1, but everyone accused me of extreme bias.

And, like the real committee, some people got seeds they didn't deserve in order to create amusing or interesting match-ups. For example, Comic Book Guy is probably too low, but we thought the match-up with Frink would be funny.

Hopefully Frink has fixed the "Sarcasm Detector" for that match-up...

Not to burst anybody's bubble, but this was done last year. It was done at www.roadtospringfield.com and was bracketed up and voted on by visitors of the site every day. I forget who won, and I just checked the site and it came up with an error. Maybe that web archive site might have the old page in it.

And not to burst YOUR bubble, but -- horror of horrors -- the idea is done EVERY YEAR by the NCAA with basketball, and by countless others by applying other pop culture properties to the tournament format.

Sheesh. Let them (and me, for that matter) have their fun.

I actually hadn't given it any thought. I was assuming it was a "one joke pony."

Nope. After I distributed a number of copies of the bracket, some of my co-workers have already filled out their choices for round one, and they want to know how it will be decided. :)

D'oh!

I can tell you he was on the bracket at one point. I think what happened it that he got moved when a better idea came up and then we forgot to put him back in.

I believe originally he was going to fight Skinner, but then thought that a) Chalmers is a better opponent and low seded and b) Willie should be higher.

Maybe he'll do a run-in, once we desire if there will be actual contests.
