Yeah, Week 1 of KidVid Tournament 2010 is in the books, and just like certain other sets of tournaments taking place in March, there are busted brackets strewn everywhere. If, you know, people were actually filling out brackets for your office KidVid Tournament 2010 pool. (If you actually work in an office with a KidVid Tournament 2010 pool, please let me and your mental health specialist know ASAP.)
They Might Be Giants -- the Georgetown or Pac-10 of the tournament, constantly underperforming. Robbert Bobbert, gone. Rocknoceros, adios. (That one really surprised me.) The only #1 seed to survive is Recess Monkey, who will now face fellow Seattle band The Not-Its, who narrowly won an epic first-round tilt against Billy Kelly. Kelly proposed settling the matter by going on a world tour with the Not-Its. Works for me.
Anyway, starting tomorrow, the 8 winners of the first round go head-to-head for an opporunity to, erm, go head-to-head against each other. For those of you just joining in, the second round matchups will be as follows:
Ella Jenkins Region: Debbie and Friends - "Willy Won't (2) vs. Johnny Bregar - "Shoo Fly Pie" (4)
Pete Seeger Region: Caspar Babypants - "Itsy Bitsy Spider" (2) vs. Dan Zanes - "Pollito Chicken" (4)
Leadbelly Region: Recess Monkey - "Marshmallow Farm" (1) vs. The Not-Its - "Come Play At Our House" (3)
Woody Guthrie Region: Brian Vogan - "That's How a Pumpkin Grows" (2) vs. Readeez - "Counting For Pleasure" (4)
And remember, no gambling!
