    Good luck, gentlemen. Let’s keep it clean. We’re all friends here.

  2. […] Posted by Signal to Noise on June 10th, 2007 First, I’d like to thank those of you who voted for me in the first round of the Ladies… Hot Blogger Bracket in my victory over Satchmo/Bowdenx3/Elric VIII of Manning Family Reunion, a worthy opponent. The second round brackets have been released, and it lines up with my prior thought that I would be in a difficult situation come the second round: I’m going up against Dan Shanoff. […]

  3. The odds say I’m screwed, but I’m not going down without a fight against Shanoff.

  4. JP says:

    Punterrrrrr….. Come out and Play-ay!!!!!

  5. Holly says:

    S2N—Unluckiest. Draw. Ever.

  6. ladyandrea says:

    JP, you’re calling out a guy to come play whose picture is of him in the bath tub? Heh.

  7. JP says:

    Lady Andrea- When I said that I’m using Karate Kid as my tournament frame of reference from here on out, I planned on including some of the homoerotic overtones. You may notice this in a previous exchance with my sensei Extra P.

  8. Sebek says:

    Good to be a part of this bracket, gentlemen. After a first round win in the AFC North, I somehow find myself in another 5-18 matchup on the other side of the bracket. Digger Phelps is going to have a heart attack.

    With a few lads sans shirts and some amigo with a police hat, this bracket has way more gayness than the AFC North.

  9. Holly says:

    Not that there’s anything wrong with that. Yum…

  10. Extra P. says:

    Wax on, wax off, Pyle-san.

  11. Sebek says:

    What’s up with the St. Louis pairing in the second round?

  12. ladyandrea says:

    It’s a conspiracy. All the Ladies hate St. Louis cardinals fans except me. I say we strike!

  13. Maybe something about killing two birds with one stone?

    Go Team Precious Roy!

  14. Burnsy says:

    I noticed that, Sebek. I am famously against Red on Red crime. Give me a Cubs fan anyday. I thought maybe it was a hot fantasy of Andrea’s. Now I see we’re merely pawns of the Astros, Phillies and Mets contingents. Whatever, works for me.

  15. Burnsy says:

    That is, being picked on for being champions.

  16. ladyandrea says:

    Shhhh, the fantasy stuff is supposed to be a secret.

  17. JP says:

    “And now the winner of the… wait, what? JP is gonna fight!”

  18. Vanilla says:

    Despite the fact that I think Sebek is just dreamy I’m officially asking my vast constituency to vote for Burnsy. Expect a lot of last minute votes, and by ‘a lot’ I of course mean 3.

  19. Burnsy says:

    I certainly appreciate that, but Matt’s sudden bursts in votes are becoming difficult to stave off. He’s like Pujols and I’m merely Tyler Johnson trying to hold him off.

  20. I’ve been pinch hitting for ya all day Burnsy… your initiative is working.. plus Extra P is helping… keep diggin man, keep diggin

  21. Burnsy says:

    My analogy made little sense. Tyler Johnson wouldn’t be holding off Pujols. But I refuse to call myself Dempster, so I guess I’ll just drop it.

  22. Extra P. says:

    But Dempster is a Ninja!

  23. Then i am unapologetically against Dempster

  24. David Arnott says:

    No one ever notices the Brown Boys. The world always seems to see in black and white. No one’s supposed to be invisible anymore. Look at Jon P, refusing to be anything other than a Brown Boy.

  25. JP says:

    Thanks for your support, David. I’ll need all the brown folk support I can get to make it to the next round… and beyond!

  26. Extra P. says:

    JP – just for kicks, I think we should ask Brown University to vote for you on that premise.

  27. JP says:

    You’re a genius. I’m sure they have nothing better to do with Finals over.

  28. Sebek says:

    Dammit Burnsy….

    Every time I post a column, beg people for their lonely vote, and gain some ground….you manage to push ahead even more.

    I feel used.

  29. Burnsy says:

    What are you talking about? Every time I get out to a cushy lead, you pummel me like the Hammer Brothers and you’re right back on my ass. This is what they wanted, Matt. These girls wanted to watch us Cardinal fans destroy each other. They’re sick and twisted, but gosh darnit I can’t get enough of them.

  30. Sebek says:

    This is insane. We almost have 1500 votes in our matchup – meanwhile the rest of these clowns only have about 700 votes in their respective competitions.

  31. Burnsy says:

    Somewhere Shanoff is giggling.

  32. Burnsy says:

    Whatever happens from here on out, I’ve got your back in the next round. It’s been fun, to say the least.

  33. Burnsy says:

    Come on, Goldfish. Keep pumping those legs.

  34. Sebek says:

    Likewise. I’m down with anyone who makes a Hammer Brothers Mario reference.

    Is it the least bit disturbing that two chaps from the Midwest are now talking exclusively with each other on a website blooming with estrogen? A little creepy. I feel like I need to go make it rain at a strip club or something to get my dignity back.

    Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

  35. I don’t know if I’d say booming per se.. haha

  36. Burnsy says:

    I’d like to propose that Matt and I both advance, regardless of the outcome. This has been the real Finals. We’re like the Spurs and the Suns. He can be the Spurs because I hate Manu.

  37. Burnsy says:

    Atta boy, Goldfish. Good to see one of us is still fighting.

  38. Sebek says:

    Where can I find your email address? I’d like to take this cybering off chartered waters.

  39. Burnsy says:

    It’s on the left side of my blog under “contact burnsy.” I’ll let the fact that you’re not a chick with nude pics slide this time.

  40. ladyandrea says:

    This is like a love connection made on Ladies. I’m all a-flutter. *sniff*

  41. Burnsy says:

    It’s a Cardinal alliance, Andie, between the two opponents in the tournament’s most exciting matchup. After this, no matter who advances, it’ll be like the Spurs and the Cavs.

  42. I dunno buds, its looking real close

  43. Burnsy says:

    It’s done-zo. Hats off to Matt.

  44. I cannot believe how many of these are still very close!

  45. Burnsy says:

    The Spurs and Suns are going to triple overtime.

  46. Burnsy says:

    It’s incredible how some people can get 104 votes in a split second.

  47. BaptismByFire21 says:

    It’s kind of like hitting a 7-run home run with bases loaded. If only the Cardinals could figure out how to do that.

  48. Burnsy says:

    All yours, Matt. My friends and readers can’t compete against magical surges of 100 votes.

  49. Murphy says:

    You know what’s weird? I’m sitting here, watching the polls and one of the competitors just got over 100 votes in a mere 2 minutes. That, my friends, is incredible.

  50. JP says:

    Burnsy, is than an official declaration of Shenanigans?

  51. Burnsy says:

    Nah, I don’t really care. My friends tried. It was fun, I guess.

  52. Sebek says:

    I sent out a final blast to my email contacts. I pretty sure I won’t compile one more vote the rest of the night. My friends hate me.

  53. Sebek says:

    Shenanigans??? I’m losing now…..

    I regress….

  54. Holly says:

    Team GoldfishCowboy!! (Natch.)
