Howdy folks. I hope everyone has been enjoying the Knife Madness tournament. After today, there are only 5 matches remaining, two more in Round 3 (Elite 8), two Final Four matches, and the Championship. Problem is, I haven’t quite figured out how to handle those last 3. I would appreciate some suggestions.
Round 1 matches consisted of full company profiles, history, and links to all of their social media feeds. Round 2 featured videos, both “official” as well as some reviews and other subjects. In Round 3 I have been doing a “Best of Instagram” which is basically just a half-dozen knife porn shots of each company’s products. I hope my mixing it up has kept it interesting for you all.
What would you like to see in the Final Four/Championship?
There are a couple of ideas bouncing around in my head, but it would require a bit of effort on the part of a few other people to make it work, so I don’t want to get ahead of my skis are it were.
I figured since I was writing about March Madness Brackets that ave nothing to do with basketball, I found a couple of other sites that are running similar contests within their respective niche/genera.
Garden and Gun is a magazine of Southern Sporting Culture – think “Southern Living” meets “Field and Stream” with a touch of “Rolling Stone” thrown in. I am a big fan. It is one of the few dead-tree publications to which I subscribe. They are running a bracket challenge of dog breeds. You can get in on that action here. Personally, I think Labrador Retriever got robbed. I know I am biased, but Chessies are a pain in the butt to train.
The site Alternate Histories is one with which I am completely unfamiliar. They just wrapped up their tournament of movie monsters, with Godzilla defeating Nosferatu to claim the title.
I actually went back and read their month of tournament content. It was fairly amusing, especially since there were many contestants I did not know.
Figured they were worth sharing for comparison as we begin to critique how our inaugural contest played out.
Please let me know your thoughts.
