Bracket of Awesome Day 3!

Here we go with some more Bracket of Awesome action!  Today we tackle the In-n-Out bracket.

Matchup 1: 1 In-n-Out vs 8 Newspaper Comics

Why they're here: For those of you who have ever eaten a Double Double you know exactly why In-n-Out is in this position.  Sweet awesome deliciousness!  Growing up in California, In-n-Out was a staple of my diet.  In fact, it still is.  Plus there's a secret menu.  Secret menus are always awesome.

Newspaper Comics
Why they're here: I'm sure we can all remember when we were young and our parents were reading the paper.  We wanted to be just like them, so we reached for the comics.  It's like we were reading something super important.  And, really, we were.  I mean, we had to find out what was going on with the Peanuts gang and what Garfield was up to.  Not to mention Marmaduke and Ziggy.  But how many of you still read the comics?  I know I don't, but I wish I did.  It's such a simple pleasure which makes them so awesome.

Who wins? Comics are fun and awesome, but it's hard to top a Double Double, fries, and a shake.  In-n-Out advances!

Matchup 2: 4 Frisbee vs 5 Sunrises/Sunsets

Why it's here: The Frisbee is such a simple toy.  It's basically just a plate that flies through the air.  But think about how much fun you can have with it.  Besides just a simple game of catch, there's ultimate Frisbee and Frisbee golf.  And don't forget about those dogs who do all the Frisbee tricks.  That's altogether awesome!

Why they're here: They're beautiful, plain and simple.  Whether you're at the beach, in the desert, on a mountain, watching a sunrise or a sunset is just breathtaking.  Unfortunately, because it happens everyday we tend to take these things for granted.  So I implore to stop every now and again and just watch as the sun rises or sets.  You won't regret it.

Who wins? Sunrises and sunsets are really beautiful and quite awesome, but there's something about the simplicity of a Frisbee.  Frisbee moves on!

Matchup 3: 3 Making People Smile vs 6 Reese's Pieces

Making People Smile
Why it's here: Do you ever think about how good it feels to make someone smile?  Do you ever think about how often you make people smile?  It's the greatest gift we can give.  Seriously awesome.

Reese's Pieces
Why they're here: Well, E.T. loved them.  As if that weren't enough, it's peanut butter and chocolate together in perfect harmony.  They're easy to eat because they're small and they're delicious.  (Has anyone else noticed that there's a lot of food in this bracket?)

Who wins? Eating Reese's Pieces makes me smile, but that's not enough to beat making other people smile.

Matchup 4: 2 Baseball vs 7 Mythbusters

Why it's here: America's pastime!  I know many people think baseball is a slow, boring game, but that's because they've never stopped to appreciate the intricacies of the game.  There's nothing better than sitting in the sun on a summer day, eating some peanuts, and watching a baseball game.  And for a family, baseball games are a lot cheaper to attend than football or basketball.  I could go on for hours explaining the awesomeness of baseball, but I'll stop here... for now.

Why they're here: They blow stuff up and do cool things with science.  Plus they test common myths and saying that I'm sure we all wonder about.  I have yet to meet anyone who hasn't watched and enjoyed at least one episode of the show.  And that right there is the definition of awesome.

Who wins? Mythbusters is great, but baseball is America's game!

Here's how the bracket shapes up after Day 3!
