The Final Four was held today. Four great blogs, but only two could advance to the Humboldt Blogger’s Tournament Final.
The comments left by readers suggest that this was a success. The people who got into this event were all good sports. Next years tournament will be even better. Now, let us recap the two Semi-Final match-ups.
#2 The Redhead Blackbelt vs. #2 Ernie’s Place
Winner: Ernie’s Place
It was a back and forth battle, but Ernie pulled away at the end. Perhaps Kym was worn down from all the strong blogs she had to conquer on her way to this Final Four. Ernie continues to roll, and will now compete to take the first ever Humboldt Blogger’s Tournament Championship.
#1 Humboldt Mirror vs. #1 SoHum Parlance
Winner: SoHum Parlance
The Bugs were leading most of the way, but could not close the deal. Eric stormed back in the late stages of the contest, and closed the door for good on the wonderful run the Bugs made in the tournament.

#2 Ernie’s Place vs. #1 Sohum Parlance
Preview: Ernie and Eric have both had their way with opponents leading up to the Final Four. Ernie was exposed a little by the Veggie Addict, and again by the Blackbelt; showing some chinks in his armor. Eric survived a quick strike by the Bugs, and held the course to come back and finish strong in his Semi-Final. Poise will be an important quality in this Final, and Eric and Ernie have a lot of it. A slight edge goes to Eric because he has beaten higher seeded blogs along the way. However, Ernie has yet to be intimidated by an opponent. Look for an evenly matched contest, with the winner pulling out a victory in the final moments.
