Madison Square Garden Bracket


#1 Batman vs. #5 Conan O'Brien

#1 Batman vs. #5 Conan O'Brien

These two bring a different type of "coolness" to the table that attracts fans, viewers and followers. Conan, a very odd, 50 year old Harvard graduate, that pretty much makes his living being goofy and entertaining us, and Batman, the coolest super hero there is, and is just as smart, educated, rich, and also has humor, albeit usually full of sarcasm.

Actually, both do their best work late nights in big cities. And yes, both have useless sidekicks (looking at you Robin and Andy Richter) that they can do with out, yet they bring them along for the ride anyhow.

However, when it comes down to it, Conan was once defeated by Jay Leno, and sent packing by NBC. Batman has no option to fail in his craft. And well, if he were Conan, he would have destroyed Leno and the rest of the NBC goons by of course, crashing through the top of the NBC headquarters. Conan put up a good fight, but this one is in the bank.

Result: Batman

#2 Jay-Z vs. #3 Jeremy Lin

#2 Jay-Z vs. #3 Jeremy Lin

The mighty "Jigga Man" against Lin-Sanity. Lin-sanity is a powerful force we experienced earlier this year with remarkable plays, game-winners, and unforgettable moments. He has captivated an entire nation, and has engaged a continent into caring about him and NBA basketball. As great as Lin-sanity has been, his run here in the DP Clash comes to a close as well. Jay-Z is simply too powerful. To quote him, "he's not a businessman, he's a business, man!"  From clothing, to cologne, to music, to professional sports, Jay-Z has it covered. Lin-sanity and it's cup of coffee in super-stardom cannot compare to a dynasty worth of excellence produced by Jay-Z.

Result: Jay-Z

To Infinity and Beyond Bracket

#1 Jason Bourne vs. #5 Katy Perry

#1 Jason Bourne vs. #5 Katy Perry

Let's be honest, it's hard to even say Katy Perry has a chance here against the number one seeded Jason Bourne. She managed to surpass the first round, but was lucky enough to have a first round match-up against the talentless Snooki. The case that will be made for Katy here is simple, shes attractive, shes talented, and she's very, very, relevant and current. However, Jason Bourne is too good. He'd use Katy's weaknesses of poor choice in men, her dependency on pro active solution, and her immature wild nights to defeat her. Yes Katy, you tried, but this DP Clash win also is one that got away.

Result: Jason Bourne

#2 Tim Tebow vs. #6 Guy Fieri
#2 Tim Tebow vs. #6 Guy Fieri

Despite being roughed up by Detective Stabler in round one, Tim Tebow managed to escape with a win. And yes, he was very excited. And well Guy Fieri, he just has one of the coolest jobs in the world. Both of these guys are super nice, and are well-known because of their ability to connect to fans because of their polite and likeable personalities. However, if you locked these two in a room in a face-off with the loser being the first one to lose their temper, you have to bet the house on Tim Tebow. He'd get psyched up like he usually does, and then just kill you with kindness and the overuse of the work "excited". I'm not sure Fieri would be able to take it. Plus, for a man that is used to eating fine meals every so often, I'm sure the hunger will eventually give way to his attitude.

Result: Tebowmania continues.
Result: Tebowmania lives on. would be able to take it. Plus, for a man that is used to eating fine meals every so often, I'm sure the hunger will eventually give way to his attitude.

Result: Tebowmania live

CM Punk's Return - Perfect Timing for the Symbol of Anti-WWE

Looooooooook in my eyes, what do you see?! The lyrics to Cult of Personality, especially that first bar,  never felt so fitting for CM Punk as it did last night.  For the most part, everything that is CM Punk's return to wrestling last night at AEW Rampage ties directly into my latest thoughts on pro wrestling - the company is making it must-see destination television, an element desperately needed from pro wrestling.  Last night was incredible as again, it was another moment that made wrestling feel alive - with a wild and energetic pulse. It was one of the coolest moments in pro wrestling that you knew was coming, expected, anticipated, and it was everything and more. Again, MUST-SEE television. That's hard to do.  For me, it wasn't just Punk's return to pro wrestling, but the mere presence and voice of his inclusion in today's space. We know that Punk can deliver on the microphone - probably his best and most signature attribute. We also know that yes, he can

Thanksgiving 2021: 5 Things I'm Thankful For

The season is upon us we all begin to reflect on the year, explore our deepest thoughts and feelings of gratitude, and express appreciation for the truer, more meaningful things in life.  I would be lying if I didn't admit that I am so incredibly excited for this holiday season. The combination of wanting the rest from what has been a demanding and exhausting semester (shout out to everyone in Student Affair realms and in Education around the country - hang in there), seeing these holidays through my son's eyes as he now understands and appreciates them, and my experiences over the last few years (losing my dad and the effects of the pandemic), all of it makes for an anticipated Holiday season - Thanksgiving included. I'm not quite sure what it is, or why the sudden feeling, but the need to express gratitude is even more abundant this year in my heart than it is has been. I have tried to remain more mindful over the last couple of months - being more present, spending energ

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 11/21/21

3 Up 1. COVID Boosters - Look, I'm not getting into vaccinations and whatnot...I'm over the discussion for 2021. However, I still find it remarkable that we not only have vaccinations for what we experienced not too long ago, but further science to help the cause.  2. MLB Covers Minors Housing - This was a long time coming. Say what you want about the changes to the minor leagues (reduction of franchises - some even closing), but the improvement of the pipeline is soooooooooo crucial if the sport is serious about improving its diversity and inclusion efforts, as well as attracting (and competing for) top talent. Plus, it's just the right thing to do. 

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 11/28/21

3 Up 1. Thanksgiving - A time for thanks, if nothing else, a restorative time away from work. Happy Thanksgiving to all, and be sure to give thanks and practice expressing gratitude.  Here are some quick thanks and thoughts from yours truly... 2. McMichael Trial Conviction - Is it weird that I feel relieved from this trial? Afterall, so many of these things go the other way. I could go on about how the state of Georgia didn't want to prosecute this case until it became a viral discussion, butttttttt, I'll just take this.  Really, I just hope this brings about some kind of peace for the parents of Ahmaud Arbery.
