Bracket of Awesomeness


Here it is:  The Bracket of Awesomeness!  We took stuff listeners nominated, and had to whittle it down to 16.  Curious what you think will win.  I'm obviously, pulling for my mom.  Or toast. I do see Thin Mints as a threat, and, obviously, am also greatly threatened, as always, by David Crowder's Beard.  But YOU will determine the champ.  Voting starts Monday.

This is why the blogs, nay, the internet was invented.

The left side of that bracket is much stronger than the right.  It should be a walk in the park for Chick-Fil-A waffle fries.  
The real question is whether David Crowder's beard or the Millennium Falcon emerges from the left.

Toast is so gonna win... But seriously, I love toast.

I do fear - and have always feared - my mom's defeat at the hands of David Crowder's beard.  I think we can share that.

LOTR bracket needs to be changed. Aragon never goes into Isengard in epic fashion. He sits on a horse and rides through the wreckage. Must be Helms Deep

I agree; change the LOTR reference.

Brant's mom by far

BUT... while the LotR reference is wrong, it struck me and my kids as so funny, we decided to leave it as-is.  That's the way it was submitted by a listener.

And let's admit it, it WOULD be awesome if Aragorn did that, too.

Is this all because Illinois had such a bad season?

3/9/2012 4:16:12 PM
Loren United States
There's a serious John Stamos thing going on in that pic, Brant.  What's up with that?!?

Oh, and Waffle Fries for the win!

Ah Brant you just make me smile! Smile Thank you so much, smiling something in my life that just doesn't happen as often as it should.

Joe United States
Why is voting for Brant not an option. I was lucky enough to be listening on your first day, and I have really enjoyed your voice ever since.  It is amazing to hear GOD use you thru your humbleness.  Prayed for you after the loss of your gram and a few weeks later I lost mine at the ripe old age of 90.  Thank God for re-unions in Heaven.  You are a BLESSING to those that tune in..

Liam United States
Pretty sure Aragorn walked through the gates of Helm's Deep and surprised everyone, not Isengard. Also, I'm pulling for Brant's mom.

tanfan United States
Love how [brackets of awesomeness] is in brackets Tong
3/9/2012 7:37:54 PM
Aaron United States
As Liam and colton already noted, the scene with Aragorn is at Helm's Deep, not Isengard.  
3/9/2012 8:32:16 PM
Amber United States
Seriously. Brant should TOTALLY be an option!!!

I don't even know what most of those things are! I vote Vegemite.

How did "The Christmas Shoes" get on the bracket????????????!?  So much love for Millenium Falcon and the Aragorn scene.  Somehow, I think it will be the beard or Brant's mom though.  
3/10/2012 6:58:32 PM
Ki United States
I'm sorry Brant... Tim Tebow needs some love... Plus, I don't know your mom. Sorry Smile
BUT the all time champion was Britt Nicole. Laughing sorry you guys! Smile
3/10/2012 7:16:28 PM
brant United States
Oh, yes, it's Helm's Deep, but I'm going with what was nominated, because it's awesome.  He should've done it at Isengard, too.

And "Tim Tebow needs some love". . .?

Tim Tebow needs some loving care?  Someone to pay him some attention?  Tim Tebow, who has NEVER bought me a single puppet?  My mom HAND-MADE puppets for me.  BOOM.

Hey so do we get to add stuff to the bracket of awesomeness? Laughing

Left side finalists:  Tim Tebow and Baby saying Mama.  Right side finalists:  Waffle Fries and Thin Mints.  Let's go Tebow!!!!!

Sorry Brant, your Mom never took my team to the playoffs.  
3/12/2012 10:26:53 AM
Tiff United States
I too was wondering why Brant isn't a choice...HOWEVER, seeing as his mother is the lovely woman who birthed him into the world, I think that counts.  I'm voting for Brant's Mom!!  Thanks Brant's Mom for being awesome enough to raise an awesome Brant!

Cory United States
So I am still upset that mine was accepted in the bracket.  Halo 1 LAN parties were totally legit.  Xbox live ruined the fun my friends and I used to have at each others houses.  It definitely is more awesome than Jodi's Dog.  By the way we should change The State of Oklahoma to the University of Oklahoma or Tornado season in the State of Oklahoma.... Both are epic

I vote Tim Tebow because I am a Bronco fan, and as a Christian it brings me great happiness to see someone in the public eye that is not afraid to praise the Lord, and give all the glory to God win or lose. With that being said a mothers love can not compare to any other earthly love, but I still have to vote for Tim.

Yet another comment upon the inaccuracy of the Lord of the Rings scene...

UNLESS... your intent was to somehow merge Aragorn's entrance in Helm's Deep with the awesomeness of Isengard's demise.

But let's face it. That would just be far too epic. Nothing else would stand a chance...

Anyone able to shed some light for me on this?  When does voting begin and end each day?

"The Christmas Shoes" song vs the Millennium Falcon?  Come on!  That is not even a real match.
Does anyone even like that song?  The Millennium Falcon with or without light-speed hands down

Thanks for giving me a bracket that actually makes sense! Fear the Beard!!---also, you are so totally rockin' the look in your bracket picture Smile

Aragorn and the Lord of the Rings together get double awesome points... Everyone's all about Helm's deep but what about when he shows up with the ships and the dead people?  I think we can all agree that Aragorn gets awesome votes.

Britt Nicole is the most amazing thing SINCE sliced bread... therefore much better than toast. She's amazing! <3
3/19/2012 11:39:17 AM
Chris United States
Britt Nicole is definitely better than toast!
3/19/2012 1:06:43 PM
Jack United States
Britt Nicole sings with a love for the Lord. That can't be beat, especially by boring toast, which just leaves you dry and needing milk. Britt IS the milk!

Toast is the clear winner. Jesus ate toast. There is a song about toast(Yeah toast! look it up on youtube.). There are so many ways to eat toast. I mean come on a young whipper snapper like britt taking on toast?

Cynthia United States
I know that is just something to do, but my choice is clearly the universe. And not that I don't like thin mints. those are great, but in your explanation of why we should chose thin mints, it's logical, but you are influencing people to choose your answer of the galaxy. turning people's eyes off of what God has made and turning their eyes to what we (man) has made. Isn't that how the world works. Let's take our eyes off God and on ourselves. I choose God 100%
3/20/2012 3:36:31 PM
Ben United States
Sorry Brant, but the galaxy had to win.  I can eat one thin mint and be content for years, but I could look at the stars for years!

Wasn't it Helm's Deep?  Not Isengard.  This was a really tough one, eh, ladies?  PSL vs Aragorn?  My husband knew I'd be torn on this one!  LOL

Oh, please please PLEASE vote TARDIS.  I gave up coffee for lent... difficult - but not as hard as not have Dr. Who access.  Brent went up in my esteem just KNOWING about the TARDIS.  You rock, dude.
