Well the Round of 32 ended in a flurry of activity — polls didn’t close on time, leads changed hands at the last minute, we may have had people delete entire Twitter accounts, @HLS_hamster mistakenly took a vacation day and stopped powering the site server…
You know, typical #HLSrecapMadness.
As for me, the votes say I came up just short on Poot, but everyone knows nobody comes up short on Poot. It is with a heavy heart that I press on, although I’m out of the tournament.
Cast Your Vote!
Polls will be open through Saturday evening, and I’ll be back bright and early Monday morning to reveal the Elite Eight for your voting pleasure.
Polls close at 5:00pm ET on Saturday, March 29.
Here’s the premise: we combine the best bits of #HLSrecap and March Madness for your enjoyment, ire, and maximum trolling. We start with a 64-slot bracket and populate it with the best tweets from 2013 Notre Dame Football games as seen in #HLSrecap. The Internet votes on who advances in each pairing until we’re left with a single winner…so inform all your family, friends, and enemies that digital glory hangs in the balance.
New for this year: I limited entries to one tweet per handle, with the exception of @oaknd1, last year’s #HLSrecapMadness Champion — he got 2 entries. If you finished in the #HLSrecap Top 25, you are guaranteed a spot; the rest are at-large bids. I solicited at-large bid nominations from the #NDtwitterati, and I selected some users myself. If I received multiple tweets authored by the same person, I reached out to the author to get his/her preferred choice for the field of 64.
