Happy birthday to me ... happy birthday to me ... happy birthday dear Ninj - oh sorry, I actually have to write this post out? I call shenanigans on that one. In all actuality, I'll probably be drunk or something when this posts so don't expect the bracket to be updated with results from yesterday's poll between The Brady Six and the new schedule of the NFL Draft, so click on over there from the link below if you're eager to see. I clearly was drunk when I did the right side of the bracket because my seeding is getting destroyed. Anyway, today we've got kinda/sorta sudden death overtime taking on divas.

So make the jump to read the descriptions of the participants for today, read full results from the left side of the bracket and of course, view the entire bracket. But first: remember, we are voting on what we believe to be the absolute worst thing of the two. If you're voting in a worst food contest, and you like pizza more than hamburgers, you would then vote for hamburgers in that matchup. Get it? Got it? Good. Make the jump.

(3) Kinda/Sorta Sudden Death Overtime

You know, howtheyscored put this best in the nomination thread and I agree with it completely. It's really an odd situation, and I think it might be seeded too highly upon looking at the bracket again, but it is a pretty big annoyance when you think about it. So let's see how it goes. Paragraph below was from howie.

"The NFL wants their sudden death cake, and they want to eat your non-sudden death cake, too. There were 100 ways to "fix" overtime that would never require this kind of explanation: "It’s sudden death, unless… in which case… even though… in which case… and if… then you draw straws and the short straw kicks a field goal. Or something. But only in the playoffs."

(14) Divas

Players who think they are God's gift to football, who think they deserve only the best treatment, who blame everything on other people. T.O. is a good example of a diva. He's actually one of the best examples of a diva. Some people might say Michael Crabtree is a diva, and I don't agree. At least not yet, but there have been some tendencies that get him partially there. He's got a whole career to prove one of us wrong, though. Either way, divas are just awful, and now I'm wishing I spent more time on the right side of the bracket because I feel like this is seeded way too low. We shall see.
