Today's first match up features the brackets first #1 seed.

Poison: This committee cannot come up with a single douchey thing that Poison has ever said or done. Although hee doesn't post a lot, he still made the effort to meet up with the rest of you douchebags at MGP night and from all accounts, was a really nice guy. So, why did Poison get entered into a Tournament of Douche, if he's not even a douchebag?

He's the first of a few tournament participants that fall into the category known as:

GBAD

Guilt

By

Association

Douchebag

If there's one thing this committee knows, it's Douche. If a person is willing to associate themselves with douchebags, then that person is a douchebag by default. So congratulations Poison. You've made it into the tournament!

Unfortunately, your opponent is The Dynasty of Douche. We present:

Monarch: ERROR! BANDWIDTH EXCEEDED!

Looks like 52 votes is the number to beat. And as long as 53 people vote, I think monarch can do it.
"The business of baseball is to make money, not break even. I don't understand why you think the Pirates should run their team like a charity." - Willlton 6/18/2009

"The Bay trade doesn't look like it (a slam dunk winner), but if you take into account the fact that all they lost was eight months of Jason Bay's services, as well as the fact that even the Red Sox look like they won't be able to re-sign him, it's not nearly the loser many people seem to think." - tWTM 11/26/2009

"Morton is finding himself, now while this may sound weird and out there, but the fact he put on a solo concert at Piratefest shows he finally has the confidence that he lacked within himself that he didn't have in the lower minors." - aso513 2/8/2010

"Dave Littlefield vindicated." - Xiga 4/30/2011 after one scoreless inning of relief by Daniel Moskos.

"Hanrahan and Cedeno would be a gross overpayment for Belt. Sorry, but I'll stick with my realistic analysis of the market and the teams involved." - Steve Zielinski 5/25/2011

"He (Barmes) could have a .000 Batting Average and still be an asset." - bradlej31 5/28/2012

"The last time the Pirates won an extra-inning game in St. Louis that lasted at least 16 frames was April 20, 1986 at Chicago." - Kristy Robinson 8/19/2012

"I want to tweet something clever and interesting to you that will earn your respect and make you smile, since you do that to me all the time." - jpbucco to Colin Dunlap 4/12/2016

"If the Pirates had acquired Giancarlo Stanton from the Marlins, Im not sure they would have won the Benedict trade." - David Todd 11/11/2015

Did Poison have to win a play-in round to earn this matchup?

This isn't even a fair fight. It's like Pitt playing against a team of Special Olympians.

I figure at least one person will post a sarcastic vote to increase his db tourney chances. And there it is.

Unless he's got 50 more, I don't see Poison having much of a chance.

This matchup would be a lot more exciting if it was a push-up competition.

Hey Poison, you hear that Fat Heads in North Olmsted will finally be opening on the 7th? I should be there. Let me know if you want to split a few beers.

I hadn't heard, but I'm down for a few beers when it opens. How does Fat Heads compare to Brew Kettle or Cornerstone Brewery?

Yeah, but how would Poison do if this contest involved scores on standardized tests? Either way, I'm predicting a final score of 63-7.

Prolly.

Did Uber just offer to "split a few beers," with Poison? Uber is splitting beers? Wow, the economy has really gotten bad.

Matt Cole (former brewer of Rocky River and Pitt Alum) is the co-owner/brewer. I think he's the best brewer in the region, and certainly the most creative. If their food choices are the same as the one on South Side, I'll be happy with it (although I think PF82 wouldn't). They're going to be somewhat set up like Brew Kettle and Beer Engine in having a number of "guest taps". Should be a great place... other than being a 35 minute drive from my house.
