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

Dome Pondering Movie Review: Hustle (2022)

What is it about? A long-time scout, Stanley Sugarman, grinds out the life of an NBA scout and the politics of the NBA by taking a chance on a prospect he believes in to change both of their lives.  Who is in it? Adam Sandler - Stanley Sugarman Juancho Hernangomez - Bo Cruz Queen Latifah - Teresa Sugarman Favorite Scene:   Kermit and Bo line up at center court and Kermit begins the trash talk to get inside of Bo's head, eventually taking him off his game.  Favorite Quote:   "I'll say one last inspirational thing to you: they can't kill you if you're already dead." Review:  Hustle sat on "My List" on my Netflix account for quite a long time. Parked on the couch in the middle of the night with a newborn, and jonesing for some hoops, I dove in on what I read (and heard from others) was a "really good film". I'll give away the suspense, I thought Hustle was decent. It felt too cliche and had little depth, but still, a really good film.  The
