2012 DP All-Star Clash - 2nd Round (Hollywood and Star World Bracket)


Hollywood Bracket 

#4 Peyton Manning vs. #8 Cyborg

#4 Peyton Manning vs. #8 Christiane "Cyborg" Santos

After pulling off the upset on LeBron James, Cyborg heads into the second round against the ultimate winner, and face of the NFL in Peyton Manning. I'm not sure if Peyton Manning could indeed fight, but there is a part of me that has to believe Manning leaves any altercation or competition as a victor. Manning is the ultimate preparer and in this bout against Cyborg, he's used to dealing with over aggressive steroid-using individuals attempting to take him down.

Result: Eli's Big Bro

#3 Prince vs. #7 Sheldon Cooper

#3 Prince vs. #7 Sheldon Cooper

Can you imagine if these two actually met?

Sheldon: *knock-knock* Prince *knock-knock* Prince* Knock-knock*Prince

Prince: I never meant to cause you any pain...

Sheldon: I'm not sure what you are talking about.

Prince: This is what it sounds like, when doves cry!

Sheldon: I'm a physicist, and I can assure you that is not possible.

Prince: Purple Rain, Purple Rain!!!

Sheldon: What is wrong with you! It is just sad, the state of humanity.

Prince: One time...two time!

Sheldon: Stop, please stop!

Prince: We're gonna party like it's 1999!

Sheldon: Oooooooh! Did you somehow acquire a continuum time machine?

Prince: Yes, It's my little red corvette!

Sheldon: Oh, I know that one!

Prince: You do?!

Sheldon: You just fell for one of my classic practical jokes. Bazinga!

Result: Sheldon by way of surviving one of Prince's unbearing, never-ending, non-stop performances.

Star World Bracket

#4 Chris Brown vs. #8 Steven Seagal

#4 Chris Brown vs. #8 Steven Seagal

Well, let's just look at this match-up logically. You can't destroy Steven Seagal. Just look at any of his movies. The man escapes nuclear attacks. And as for Chris Brown, he's only tough when he can attack a woman. This one is pretty academic.

Result: Seagal moves on.

#2 Super Mario vs. #6 Pitbull

#2 Super Mario vs. #6 Pitbull

Probably the most intriguing of the second round match-ups. It is Mr. world-wide against Mr. Nintendo himself. While Mario is very popular, one can argue that his appeal amongst those who are adults is not as strong as Pitbull's. However, without mentioning the franchise that Super Mario is, even if we play to Pitbull's strength which is partying and a having a good time, Super Mario recently adapted and cornered that aspect as well. Nintendo Wii. Mario Party! Oh yeah, the plumber man is the true Mr. Worldwide, and he's in your living rooms everyday.

Result: Super Mario

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 11/6/22

3 Up 1. NYC Marathon Winners - I am ALWAYS in awe of marathon runners, especially, marathon winners. Congratulations to Evans Chebet and Sharon Lokedi on winning the Men's and Women's races.  2. Taylor Swift - Only Taylor Swift can reach the heights of breaking records from the likes of The Beatles. And well, she's done just that. Also, she's taken over the entire Top 10 by becoming the first artist - ever! - to do just that. Amazing.  3. World Series No-Hitter (and Championship) - It pains me to give the Houston Astros some love in this space, but it is deserved. Especially, for that combined no-hitter in Game 4 of the World Series. Kudos.  3 Down 1. Antisemitic Rhetoric - There is so much that can be said here. I'll just repeat a sentence from an Asian student in our office as others discussed Kyrie Irving, Kanye West, and all of the antisemitic rhetoric currently out there - why would you say any of this? 2. Takeoff Killed - Such a tragic occurrence. We just do

62 is Amazing...So was the Mental Competitiveness

It's very easy to fall into the low-hanging fruit that surrounds what Aaron Judge pulled off in hitting 62 - SIXTY-TWO!! - home runs. What's the real home run record? What is your opinion? Who's the real home run king? You know, all of the hot-takes and forced debates that always seem flood to the surface and strangle the moments, accomplishments, and specialness in sports.  The conversation is valid, and it is definitely the fault of no one else besides Major League Baseball that we are currently in this position of deciphering records from *records. We've done the steroids discussion in every shape, form, arena, and angle thus far - nothing is going to change. We all have had time to plant our flag and get comfortable with steroids, the steroid era, and its place in the game of baseball's history.  Even the "American League Record" moniker, while fact, still had the feeling of reaching for legitimacy to combat the steroid gorilla in the 62 in '22 roo

WWE Extreme Rules 2022 Review: "Keep Doing That Thing...Whatever it is. It's Working"

Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think as a young, teenage wrestling fanatic that the WWE would be better off without Vince McMahon. But in the year 2022, this very much rings true. Ever since the Chairman of the Board swayed his arms in that classic McMahon strut right out of the WWE, leaving Triple H, Stephanie McMahon, and Nick Kahn with the brass ring (how about that ode to Vince?), the product of the WWE has actually pulled me back in.  Heck, I watched RAW live, for an hour. Not the whole three hours, because, really, I still have no idea how some fans do that. Even if the show is good.  Nonetheless, much like all things that get a fresh coat of paint in pro wrestling, it becomes a hot commodity. Sustaining it is the challenge (see AEW for proof). We'll see how long this lasts, but for now, the WWE is once again entertaining, and that doesn't bode well for the rest of the wrestling industry.  I tuned into Extreme Rules, WWE's long-time nod to ECW with a night fu

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 10/17/22

3 Up 1. Four Astronauts Return Home - I can't imagine being in space for six months. I've had my experiences of living out of a suitcase on earth for as long as two weeks on the road, and that's difficult. Space? For 6 months. Kudos to all four astronauts. And of course, I'm glad that they're home safe.  2. Bruce Sutter - The Hall of Fame unfortunately passed away this week. And while I never saw Sutter pitch, I too threw a split-fingered fastball when I didn't have much else in my development as a pitcher in college. I've got much respect for the inventor of the pitch. RIP.  3. Floating City - Give this article a read. A floating city? The whole entire idea sounds crazy, but at the same time, super cool. Rising sea levels has everyone thinking differently, and this is certainly that.  3 Down 1. Sandy Hook Families - The families were awarded a huge settlement this week in a case against Alex Jones. While that should be an "Up", I couldn't he
