Its time for the Elite Eight in March Moniker Madness

A couple of 1-seeds finally fell in the regional semis in the Madness, with Johnny Dickshot finally petering out in the Sounds Dirty bracket, and Kila Ka’aihue’s Spelling Bee charge to the title getting lost in translation.  Only two regions had their top two seeds make the regional finals, and the “Spelling Bee” regional final is a 4 vs. 7-seed battle.

The updated bracket is shown in this pdf.  We’ll now list all 4 “elite eight” match-ups here, and would love for you to vote on all of them by late Thursday afternoon.  Once again, the number to the far, far left of the name is the seed in the region.  The number and letters to the immediate left of the name are for clerical purposes only. (ex. “6  SD-121 Tony Suck” would mean Tony Suck is the 6 seed in the “Sounds Dirty” region)

Now, onto the pairings!

“Sounds Dirty” Regional Final

  • 4 SD-113 Rusty Kuntz (79%, 33 Votes)

  1. The choice between Astyanax Douglass and Drungo Hazewood may be the most difficult decision I’ve had to make since I was 18 and had to choose between going to Fordham or NYU……

      Wow ….. did you ask your SO or folks what to do this time?

    • Mike B says:

      Same problem here. Went with Astyanax for the ancient Trojan reference.

      I don’t think anyone’s beating Pickles Dillhoefer, though.

      • Daniel Goodwin says:

        So we do know what his parents were thinking. We just don’t know why. But “Drungo?” From whence that?

        • Diane says:

          Dunno …. anyone?

        • Mike B says:

          A little research…U.S. Census records from 1910 and 1920 list a family with the surname Drungo living in Mobile, Alabama at those times.

          Drungo Hazewood was born in Mobile in 1959. One Drungo still lived in the area as late as the 1930 census, late enough that Mr. Hazewood’s parents might have known him and named their child after him. That is my current hypothesis.
