March 'Monte' Madness
Permalink Closed


*

I love "March Madness", the NCAA basketball tournament.  I enjoy watching the games, particularly the close ones, witnessing the comebacks, being stunned by the shockers.  I'm not exactly sure what the attraction is (perhaps the part of me that loves timelines?), but I'm addicted to watching the brackets as teams advance & others are eliminated.

 

So, with "March Madness", the "Monte" edition "BRACKETS"....

 

 

ROADS REGION

 

Knight Division

6 = 1978-1980

3 = 1981-1988

 

Shield Division

7 = 2000-2005

2 = 1973-1975

 

 

WHEELS REGION

 

Monte Division

8 = 1970-1972

1 = 1995-1999

 

Carlo Division

5 = 2006-2007

4 = 1976-1977

 

 

 

"Complete" your brackets by indicating your pick of which model years (as noted above) will triumph as champion, for a "to be determined" prize....

 

 

ROUND # 1

...For each of the 4 match-ups, vote for the years you like best.

...1 vote per person per board.

...If you are a member of more than 1 board to which I'm sharing this, you may vote once on each board.

 

6 (1978-1980) ...vs... 3 (1981-1988)

7 (2000-2005) ...vs... 2 (1973-1975)

 

8 (1970-1972) ...vs... 1 (1995-1999)

5 (2006-2007) ...vs... 4 (1976-1977)

 

 

 

ROUND # 2

...I'll post these match-ups based on your votes for the 1st round winners.

 

Knight Division winner ...vs... Shield Division winner

Monte Division winner ...vs... Carlo Division winner

 

 

ROUND # 3 (championship)

...I'll post the final round match-up based on your votes for the 2nd round winners.

 

Roads Region champ ...vs... Wheels Region champ

I think it will go more like this:

The Knight division
3 (1981-1988)
The Shield Division
2 (1973-1975)

The Monte Division
8 (1970-1972)
The Carlo Division
4 (1976-1977)

With the Knight division taking the overall victory in round 2

And the Monte Division taking the overall win in round 2

Leaving the Roads Region the Champions in round 3

Votes duly noted. ;)

And, Dave ... so far, you're the only one to qualify for the prize (see below)........


*
PRIZE ANNOUNCEMENT!

To qualify for the win, you MUST indicate your pick for which model years will be the overall champion...
...8 (1970-1972)
...7 (2000-2005)
...6 (1978-1980)
...5 (2006-2007)
...4 (1976-1977)
...3 (1981-1988)
...2 (1973-1975)
...1 (1995-1999)

For those who accurately pick the overall champion, the PRIZE is a small donation to the club, forum, group or charity of your choice in your name/honor. Depending on how many WIN, the donation may be small. I am unemployed, but I have an amount set aside for donations which I can use for the prize.



So...to start, right now:

A) NAME YOUR PICK FOR OVERALL CHAMPION

(and)

B) VOTE for the ROUND #1 MATCHES...
...For each of the 4 match-ups, vote for the years you like best.
...1 vote per person per board.
...If you are a member of more than 1 board to which I'm sharing this, you may vote once on each board.

6 (1978-1980) ...vs... 3 (1981-1988)
7 (2000-2005) ...vs... 2 (1973-1975)

8 (1970-1972) ...vs... 1 (1995-1999)
5 (2006-2007) ...vs... 4 (1976-1977)

LOL! Pick DENIED! ;)

...and now...

...to "jump start" CRUISING SEASON...

after several lead changes, the NATIONAL CHAMPION by one (1) vote is

*** 8 = 1970-1972 (Monte Division Sectional & Wheels Region Final) ***
Round-by-round results & contest winner below....


Remember the MC trivia contests [Jeopardy! (2006 & 2010), Wheel of Fortune & others] I've done with different prizes? I thought this would be a fun & easy way to raise money for favorite forums/boards/groups/charities. Results (& money raised) would've been different if more of you had voted!

If your favorite model years did not make it very far this time, you MAY have another chance with a different NHL/NFL/MLB-style playoff.... That in mind, POSSIBLE seeds for NEXT time...:
#1 = 1970-1972 (8)
#2 = 1981-1988 (3)
#3 = 1973-1975 (2)
#4 = 1976-1977 (4)
#5 = 2006-2007 (5)
#6 = 2000-2005 (7)
#7 = 1978-1980 (6)
#8 = 1995-1999 (1)



{{{ CONTEST WINNER }}}

1 person picked 8 (1970-1972) to be the overall champion ... dimitri (Rob B) ... CONGRATULATIONS!

He wants the $50 to be donated in his honor to the National MC Owners Association. I'll send the check this week.
