March Madness is upon us, and you know what that means, EOW Nation: It's Burger Bracket time. Katharine Shilcutt put out a call for judges last week, and after careful, admittedly capricious, consideration, we've chosen the teams. Without further ado:
- Team Burgerteers, for managing to work both a crappy Ford AND fellatio into a poem about burgers. [Note to the 'teers: you must have four members on your team to participate.]
- Team FattyFatBastard, for having at its helm our own prolific commenter, the controversial FattyFat, who will surely add plenty of edge to the proceedings.
- Team Texas Teachers, because it's made up of middle school teachers, and they deserve a medal - or at least a few burgers - for teaching kids during those psychopathic years.
- Team BurgerAddict, because these burger addicts are also members of the clergy. Seriously.
Check back on Monday, February 27, to see the entire bracket. And we can't wait to see all y'all at the Championship Tasting of the final four entries. Details on that event to come.
Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
