The 2011 Humboldt Blogger’s Tournament!!! The Field is set.

The field is set for the 2011 Humboldt Blogger’s Tournament.  There will be Play-in Matches this week before the Tournament starts at the end of the week.  So here I will announce the match ups in the first round.

Please note that the smaller number by a blog means a HIGHER ranking.  I wish the best of luck to all of those Blogs who made the tournament!

The Headwaters Region

1. Humboldt Herald vs. 16. High Like Me/ Trinidad Skatepark Alliance

8. Bumble Bee Nation vs. 9. Seven-o-Heaven

5.  Radio Radio Radio vs. 12. Continental Shelf

6. The Ranch at Salmon Creek vs. 11. Dreaming Up Daily

7. Thingamababy vs. 10 Highboltage

2. WatchPaul vs. 15. Kushboldt

So let the discussion begin.  People who are arguing that Readheaded Blackbelt deserved a Number 1 seed should note that it came down to a coin toss (literally) with Chocolate Covered Xanax.  As a result, those two blogs are placed in the same Region.  They will have to face each other to get the Final Four.

Any other arguments?  I look forward to the comments…

UPDATE: Please feel free to list any blogs that the Committee may have overlooked.  I will offer up the first:  Surfrider Humboldt

  1. I’m sure the Arcata Elder Village blog is very worthy but, since they haven’t made a post since September, if they win this round, I will be sure that the elders are not above a certain amount of bribery.

    Not that I’m like paying attention or will get my feelings hurt or will post that picture of Sally carving in a public picnic table if I don’t win. Really, I won’t. … Really.

  2. My only hope is that somewhere within the realm of giving a shit, there’s something within the realm of giving a shit. I’d like to think humboldt’s blogified “politics” are helping where this county’s headed…not just fanning flames.
