Root Beer Bracket
Matchup 1: 1 Root Beer vs 4 Museums, Zoos, etc.
Who wins? Root Beer is such a powerhouse. How can you deny the base for root beer floats and black cow shakes? At the same time, museums and such are the centers of learning and innovation. That's pretty awesome! Nothing compares to seeing a kid's face light up when learning something new in a museum or seeing a lion for the first time at a zoo. But, alas, it's hard to top sweet drops of heaven on your tongue. Root Beer moves on.
Matchup 2: 3 The A-Team vs 7 Lasagna
Who wins? "In 1972 a crack commando unit was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn't commit. They promptly escaped..." and starred in the most awesome television show ever! Sorry, lasagna, you just can't compete with this.
Grand Canyon Bracket
Matchup 1: 1 Grand Canyon vs 5 Lego
Who wins? You could probably use Legos to build a replica of the Grand Canyon and it would be pretty cool. But it doesn't compare to the awesomeness of actually being there. Grand Canyon advances!
Matchup 2: 2 High Fives vs 6 Phillie Phanatic
Who wins? You all saw the video from last time. The Phanatic is hilarious and he brings smiles to lots of faces. But high fives bring more smiles to more faces. Just watch, I'll give you all a high five right now and you'll smile and understand why they're moving on.
So here's how the bracket looks after Day 1 of the Sweet Sixteen. Come back tomorrow as we shrink the field to eight!
Bracket of Awesome Sweet Sixteen!
