2010 BRACKET IS UP AND OFFICIAL: http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_R-A6mcKEyls/S6pNlnmFkAI/AAAAAAAAAAs/X5G5BHO_YvM/s1600/notybracketfinalhaterz.jpg
First batch of matches are up! Nohjay Nimpson vs. Lolita Respectnothing, Rich Tanguy vs Courvosier Riley.
Once again, it’s time for the greatest tournament of our time. College basketball is great and all, but it pales in comparison to the greater tournament, something that touches every one of us at some point in our lives: fucked up names.
Since 1983, the Name of the Year tournament has been occurring. It now sports a full 64 name bracket of inconceivable names. More importantly, this is one tournament where YOU make the difference. The winners of the matchups are determined by public voting.
Here is the 2009 bracket. Barkevius Mingo went on to win the whole thing, but my personal favorites included Chastity Clapp, Crystal Metheny, Gauntlett Mighty, Richard Titball, Hung The Dang, Katie Cumalat, and of course, the Reverend Valentine Handwerker.
2008 was my first year following the tournament, and I still don’t know how Steeve Ho You Fat didn’t take it all. It’s not just the “Steeve.” It’s not just the Ho, You Fat. It’s those, combined with This profile and picture. Other classics from the historic 2008 season include Firm Dinkins, Alpacino Beauchamp, Have-a-look Dube, Charley Willard Horse Dick, Poony Poon, Cash Dixon Ringo Starlight, Baffelly Woo, Hurtis Chinn, and Daniel Best-Spicehandler.
2010 NOTY TOURNAMENT HAS BEGUN!
