March Madness is here, and it’s not just for college basketball. Because I’m an insane person, I decided it’d be fun to put together a bracket of the best and brightest Pistons fans on Twitter and pit them against each other until only one was left standing.
I expected a few dozen people to show interest, and I figured I’d already follow most of them so it’d be a piece of cake. More than 150 put their or others’ name in the hat and I had to be left to figure out who deserved to make the cut in a full 64-team field. (sorry, no play in games in my house).
The seeds were unveiled today on Twitter, and the interest in the proceedings was, honestly, shocking.
Now, it is time to unveil the entire bracket and further details about just how the hell we’re going to pull this sucker off.
First, what you’ve all been waiting for — the full bracket split into four regions: Big Ben, G.Hill, Zeke and Mr. Big Shot (h/t to @conradburry for that suggestion).
Voting will commence this evening and run for 24 hours. A post for each of the regions will be published on DetroitBadBoys.com with the matchups remaining in that region. The voting will be conducted via twitter poll with the tweets embedded on each post.
Those facing off are encouraged to make their case as to why they should be victorious in their match-up.
All complaints can be sent on Twitter to @sean_corp or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The voting will begin at 8 p.m. tonight! Get excited!
