What the above said, which is why this is being posted now. It’s still March! But first things first, the final results, since it is the final. Drum roll please?

That is a weak timpani solo, as when I played it it was an entire cadenza, but let’s try that again.

Your 2019 championship…

1BL. “Aaron Hernandez (neck) out indefinitely” beats 4S. “I see they’re honoring Joe Paterno’s 50th anniversary of the first game he coached. To start the game, they will have 40 years worth of moments of silence.” 33-18

So congrats to that quote, which will… I don’t know, I don’t actually have control of what goes on the banner so I can’t say what happens. But it does win the championship. And a further congratulations to the author of that quote, Sharkbait!

So that answers that question. As for the rest of the authors? Well, check below, and here’s your obligatory usage of “One Shining Moment.” Someone else can make the montage.

Tournament Grand Final

1BL. “Aaron Hernandez (neck) out indefinitely” (Sharkbait) beats 4S. “I see they’re honoring Joe Paterno’s 50th anniversary of the first game he coached. To start the game, they will have 40 years worth of moments of silence.” (Buddy) 33-18


So Sharkbait wins it all with the #1 overall seed, and actually had a chance to have BOTH entries in the championship as he had a double dip in the Penultimate Four with the Saudi 9/11 joke which fell to Buddy’s Paterno quote. Below is the master hard copy, complete with little notes of what day to look for early-round results (so I didn’t have to search), the seeding of the 1-seeds (so I could actually follow the S-curve, which only moved a couple things around in order to prevent potential early-round commentist vs. self match-ups—the rule was that it wasn’t allowed until the Ice Milk Eight), which actually did influence what region they were in (Aaron Hernandez gets the BLEERGH because the P*ts, Cripso’s got the BOLTMAN due to location, BFC’s tome got SHAN’KHOR because of the fact it involved kicking, and then GAMBLOR was the remaining one, and I guess neon talons and LED lights?), and where I stole this template from!

Yes, I know my handwriting is garbage. Template taken from the link on the bottom, which is apparently a site, but I just checked Google Images honestly.

 

And with that, the tournament officially concludes and we can go back to our lives.

I’ve got a backlog of House of Pain posts before the expo in a couple weeks, so you’ll be hearing from me soon. As for this, feel free to say how much this concept sucked/didn’t suck, bitch/gloat about how you did in the tournament now that we know whose is whose, and anything else. If we happen to do this again next year, and you have your own screencapped banners (probably from your own triumphs), please let me know so I can give you my email to send them to me, and they will be entered into the pool along with the banner comments starting this past August 1st.

I can now go to sleep, so this is Senor Weaselo signing off from the first [DFO] Banner Tournament. Thank you everyone for being really goddamn funny and keep it up, thank you for voting, and good night.

Awesome work Weaselo!!!!!!

Holy shit? I had four picks? I HAD A ONE SEED?!

Rikki-Tikki-Deadly

This was wonderful, and thank you for all your hard work making it happen.

blaxabbath

Does the Aaron Hernandez gag win if he spent his career playing somewhere other than N*E?

Low Commander of the Super Soldiers

Did he still kill 3 people?

BrettFavresColonoscopy

How many would have been hookers?

nomonkeyfun

Wow. My bracket was sooooo much better here than in that other tournament.

No clue that was my banner. I was even getting ready to write into the committee to complain that the one banner I had wasn’t in the tourney.

Horatio Cornblower

“Flyers-Capitals is beginning to resemble a GOP debate, right down to a black guy getting punched out and then thrown out by the authorities.” (Horatio)

Hand to cod, I had no idea this was my comment.

Outstanding hustle, Senor. Great job all the way through. I’d slap you on the ass, hard, but HR has made me promise to stop doing that.

Sharkbait

Well done on running this Senior. I assume this punches my one way ticket to hell?

Horatio Cornblower

More like it hangs the ticket over your bed frame.

Like an improvised rope made of bedsheets, Sharkbait’s banner held together long enough to strangle the competition.

Banner this!

theeWeeBabySeamus

I’d like to echo the sentiment of thank you for doing this, Senor. I for one, enjoyed it a great deal.
And more importantly, you worked your ass off doing it. Thank you.

And speaking of your ass, prepare it, because Carolina Reaper seeds are in the soil.

I thought this was great, and am unabashedly proud of the deep runs (PHRASING!) my banner quotes made in this tourney.

A big “GOOD JORB!1!!” to Senor for his work as ringmaster of this circus. Siegfried and Roy are both smiling down from heaven on you.

Low Commander of the Super Soldiers

I didn’t realize tiger shit went to heaven.

Game Time Decision

I would like to complain that I’m not funny enough to even make this tournament.

scotchnaut

Sharkbait gets all the Granny Hall’s hot dogs he can eat. Remember! Don’t boil them them for more than 6 minutes otherwise they’ll split and won’t present well.

BrettFavresColonoscopy

I had no recollection 13. “Home ice is just a cocktail awaiting bourbon.” was me, and if I had, I still would have voted for Ian’s line over mine there.

ballsofsteelandfury

That’s some fucking great hustle, Weaselo! That’s a shitload of work you did to put this thing together! Thank you!

Also, I, like most future NBA millionaires, went 1 and done.

BrettFavresColonoscopy

Seconded. Thanks for the effort collating the proof of our collective depravity.
