2011 Humboldt Blogger’s Tournament: First day Opening Round Results

It was an exciting first day of the tournament, and their were some upsets.  A few of the higher seeded blogs were sent packing today.  If  you are a fan of the underdog than today was a good day for you.

Most of the action took place in the Prairie Creek Region today, so we will start there.  The top seed Mckinleyville Press Blog advanced to round two.  Most of the other high seeds made it through, except for the #6 Bohemian Mermaid, who fell to #11 The Noble Lie.

  1. Cool, I’m still in it. Where is As It Stands? Maybe Dave will show up tomorrow? I can’t wait. This is almost as exciting as sitting on the hill waiting for the wave to take out the radio station.

    OK, I exaggerate a bit.

  2. I suspect I will Tom, as I understand Joe Blow is my competition. I wonder how that happened?

    We’re really such good buddies and all. LOL!

  3. I just want to apologize to Forest Defender. We didn’t mean to be competitive. We started the blog in 2006 during a time of (complete, thanks) recovery from surgery. Maybe I will look for some more local history items. I like those blogs best.

  4. Greg’s an honest man.

    The smart Vegas money is keeping a very close eye on Redheaded Blackbelt’s performance in the postseason, and it is liking what it sees. A lot.
