Current research indicates that probably no one reads the DBD. So I'll make it as Twitterific as possible. With March Madness looming, it's time to ask, what is your favorite playoff system?
Brief summary of each system.
NFL: Four weeks of unpredictability, the most hyped up event to finish it off, but can be disappointing if games get out of hand since there are so few of them. At least you can see commercials of stupid animal tricks in the end.
NBA: Plenty of games, it lasts nearly two months, but usually rewards the best team that season with the title. Reserved for masochists like me.
NHL: Similar to the NBA. I've heard their playoffs are fantastic. I'll get to them someday.
MLB: Pitchers, hitters, duels. It's all about who's got the most cajones, or something. Who's got what it takes to win a Game 7 (and Game 7s in baseball are unparalleled). It's also really really short for a season that's two years long.
Soccer: Does soccer even have a playoff system? I know in Europe they have some Champions League thing, but that somehow has nothing to do with the actual club performance. It doesn't make any sense. Damned Euros. It's even worse than college football.
NCAA Basketball: Perfect for filling out pools and claiming bragging rights over your friends, even if you have no real interest in 95 percent of the teams or players. Probably the only time where a majority of women are just as interested in a sporting event. Full of upsets, full of unpredictability, but usually gets the best teams at the end.
NCAA Football: Emerald Nuts anyone? I guess if you count the regular season as the playoffs, maybe you could enjoy the finish...
Dump away with the usual hub-hub, but only AFTER you give an answer. Otherwise you will be punished with a link to an addicting flash game.
