    Good one! But I dunno about your initial match up brackets. Matching up Plant / Gabriel and Lee / Davies in the first round? And your somewhat blatant attempt to jump Dave and cancel Sammy was kind rudimentary. If you really wanted to stack the deck, you should’ve matched D-Ro and Plant. Come on. You shoulda consulted me.

    Probably should have left Hagar and Roth off altogether... but it should be fun to watch Roth's climb to the top but see a class act like Zander be shut out in the first round.
