Really sorry to see Sven go.
Not so sorry for MDG, since I’m pretty sure I promised to make out with him if he lost.
I’m sorry to see Sven go too…I had him in my final four.
That’s not the worst consolation prize I’ve ever heard of.
To be fair, I also promised to make out with him if he won.
(Seriously. MDG. Call me.)
The upside for Sven is that I’ve put his picture on my fridge as inspiration for the TSB. (Since I already have J-Money up there for me.)
(But honest in spirit.)
Sorry for the Bobby Knight-esque tournament performance.
…seriously, thank you. Quite fun, even if I came to an end sooner than I’d have liked.
I wish I had organized some kind of Chicago-style election shenanigans, outside of a few of my gf’s co-workers voting on Friday morning. The margin actually grew over the weekend, from 52-48 to 55-45.
I think Sven lost for three reasons:
1. I captured the key blogger demographic of “individuals who will never see their own abs again”. Not a group to be underestimated in a contest like this.
2. Sven’s quote. I think to many people attributed it to him instead of understanding its context. The quote combined with his picture probably got me a lot of “fuck that guy, I’m going for the fat, bald douchebag” vote.
3. Obviously, I’m hotter than the bottom log of a bonfire.

I’m adding all kinds of new axioms to my vernacular thanks to this thing….this is my favorite, along with “Seersucker is for closers”.
[…] the Ladies… themselves seem shocked and disappointed, so I’ll just shrug my shoulders, say “thank you”, and move along.Â Don’t […]
RUTS, you’re right; there is always a No. 19 v. No. 4 upset or two.
In fact, I broke down the first-round bracketology for you.
Yes, I’m a dork . . . but a hot dork!
The too-expected eighteenh & nineteenth seeds advancing… I have to think that the Selection Committee wishes they could have the process back.
Thanks again for letting me crash your party. This was the most fun I’d had all week.
Does this mean I’ve had my seersucker license revoked?
Guys to the right for high fives… Holly to the left for make outs! If I can somehow find my way to LA from DC you’re golden baby.
Congrats to everyone moving on, its well deserved.
Thank you Ladies… for including me, pulling for me and being so damn sexy.
Well, Sven really didn’t have a chance, did he? RUTS is a Penn Stater.
