Last year brought us the Road to Springfield. This year? Why, it's Comic Book Super Heroes Versus The Stars of the Old Testament. I, personally, am looking forward to the Goliath/Richie Rich matchup.

The Mid-West bracket seems to favor heavily the comics. I don't see any OT figures making it out of there alive. The Middle East bracket gives the Bible Belters a better chance, but only through the inclusion of some decidely less-than-super-heroic Super Heroes (C'mon, Sampson v. Jughead? Lucifer v. Little Lulu?).

You gotta like the one-seeds meeting at the end, unless Lucifer can pull it out in the Final Four.

For a second I thought you might be talking about a new video game.

This is absurd. The whole league is a sham ever since God retired.

Retired? Isn't the OT top seed God? Or am I just confused....

A case can be made that Lucifer isn't getting enough respect, and God's No.1 seeding is based on past glories.

Heh, heh. Goliath v. Rich: "I don't know Davey, that Rich kid looks kinda dangerous"

Basketball?! What about a straight-up fight, Spiderman vs. Jesus?
