The Committee worked through the night despite the occasional brawl, and the tournament field is just about set. The excitement is building because after the first year jitters we have a better format for the tourney this time around.
The entire field will be announced tomorrow. Today I am revealing the four Blogs who have been rewarded with a top seed, and the region which they have been placed in. I am also announcing the four “Play-in” matches that will determine the last four blogs to make the field of 64.
In the Headwaters Region the Humboldt Herald will be the #1 seed. Congratulations to Heraldo and crew.
In the Arcata Marsh Region, the Humboldt Mirror will be the #1 seed. Congratulations to the Bugs.
In the Prairie Creek Region, the McKinleyville Press will be the #1 seed. Nice job down the stretch!
Last, but certainly not least, in the Richardson Grove Region, Chocolate Covered Xanax will be the #1 seed. Nicely done K-Bel!
Now we get to the Play-in matches. These eight blogs will be matched up with a spot in the final field of 64 at stake.
The reward for the winners of each of these match-ups is a date with a Number 1 seed. Maybe there is a Giant Killer among these 8!
Again, congratulations to the Number 1 seeds, and check back tomorrow for the rest of the field!!!!
