The Humboldt Blogger’s Tournament: First Round Results, and Second Round Schedule of Matches!

Happy Easter to those of you celebrating the day. As for the Eggs in this hunt of a Blogger’s Tournament, we have the First Round of the Tournament in the books. Suspense was at a minimum as the higher seeds took the majority of the matches.

The big upset of the First Round was delivered by Fortuna Citizen. This #14 seed upends the #3 Dirt, and sends Amy Stewart home in one and done fashion. Among other notable higher seeds falling was sentimental favorite #4 299 Opine, who fell to #13 Humboldt Homestead. A pair of #6 seeds, Talking Tech and the Plazoid, fell to Kushboldt and Klamblog respectively.

  1. I don’t want to play anymore. I’m taking my ball and going home.

    (Thanks a lot….I lost big money and social stature because of this…I’m going to drown my sorrows in a vat of nacho cheese and convenience store meat)

  2. We’re funnier than Fred.
    We know you’ll do the right thing.
    We’ll make it worth your while.
    When we face the Humboldt Mirror, we have something special planned.
    Do it.

  3. OK…

    K-Bel, Captain Buhne would get busted back to Seaman First Class if he refused a spanking from you. Kinky stuff aside, the betting line has you slightly favored.

    Ekovox, I shed a tear as the Blogsphere watched you exit the stage for the final time. Thank you for all the great memories!

    Capdiamont, forget all the stuff you have read about Rose being dissed because she was a #3 seed only. The number of sure fire winners shrinks significantly after the first round.

    That being written, I turn my attention to my favorite underdog, Seven-o-Heaven. As much as i want to just pencil you into the Regional Final, I can’t. Just know that I am pulling for you. Next year the committee will not make the same mistake of giving you such a low seed.

  4. Seven-oh-heaven may be an underdog given the seeding, but Vegas disagrees-

    Seven-oh-Heaven -3 posts over Fred

    And you have to love Osborn as the ultimate cinderella pick

    Heraldo -21 posts, but could the impossible happen?

    Cap, I think Vegas was going to show you some love until they read your idiotic post today.

    Rose -11 posts

  5. I am invincible! Bring it on! I’ll sting like a bee and float like a butterfly!

    We’re gonna win the game. I guarantee it.

  6. Cap, your posts have nothing to do with the outcome of the tournament. For the record, that picture in your post was like a “Where’s Waldo” thing.

  7. Hey, my heart is with the Ranch at Salmon Creek. Us hill folk don’t go for competitive games. We’re into to cooperation. The Ranch and I join forces and defeat all the other teams! Yay, for playing nice in the sandbox!
