The Ultimate Tailgate Bracket

New, 84 comments

ITS HERE!

We've taken your nominations, and our own, into account and done the dirty work of debating the seeds. It wasn't easy. Paul killed that Dan guy he keeps talking about on twitter. WatsonTiger still hasn't stopped crying in a corner about Oreo Balls. Poseur ripped PodKatt's pants. It was Rau against Rau. Serious business.

But we came up with our final seeding, based on criteria ranging from deliciousness, to convenience, to omnipresence, to "screw it we just like this one better," to even setting up the best later-round matchups.

Food Bracket Round 1

The first round will begin tomorrow. Each matchup will be a vote OF THE PEOPLE.

Let's handicap the winners in the comments.
