WINNER – MARCH MADNESS: The Best of Georgetown

FI march madness winner

After weeks of voting, many heated matchups and some exciting upsets, we at The Fourth Edition are proud to announce that we do, indeed have a winner!

In the Final Four battle between Hot Chick, The Tombs, Georgetown Day and Bill Clinton, there was no clear frontrunner.

In the end, Georgetown Day triumphed over The Tombs by a small margin to clinch the title!

Incidentally, Georgetown Day is only eleven short days away! So be sure to read up about this famous Georgetown tradition.

Unhappy with the outcome? Well, March Madnesss will be back next year with new regions and new matchups. See you then!

So the top seeds in the Georgetown Bar region made it to the Elite Eight, but which one will get to the Final Four?

Rhino or The Tombs?

Rhino isn’t too far from campus, but, after a long night of party hopping, you may not want to trek all the way to M street.

But M Street also means food. Johnny Rockets, Tuscany, Quick Pita. And, at a certain point in the night, that’s all that really matters.

However, The Tombs is literally steps off of campus. You can even spend your night in Lau and then pop over for a drink.

Then again, our basketball team has often been spotted at Rhino, especially after a big win.     Who can turn down an opportunity to dance with the stars of the school?

Rhino is more of a weekend bar, but The Tombs is known for their weekly theme nights like Country Night every Monday and Trivia Night every Tuesday.

Personally, The Tombs is a Georgetown staple, as we showed in the Round 1 argument, but can Rhino pull out a win? Anything is possible in March as we’ve seen. (Editor’s Note: clearly this is true. The West region of my bracket is in shambles)

MARCH MADNESS: Notable Alumni Round 2

See full bracket and results herePatrick Ewing Bill Clinton

Results for Notable Alumni Round 1 are in: Patrick Ewing bested the top seeded Bradley Cooper by only 11 votes, and Bill Clinton showed who’s really in charge by destroying Zoey Bartlet (much to the chagrin of our managing editor). Georgetown has spoken; we like basketball and presidents. Simple as that.

Now two alumni compete to make the Final Four. It’s Patrick Ewing vs. Bill Clinton.

I think we’d all agree that Ewing has aged pretty well

But let’s not forget about Bill Clinton, who ages like a fine bottle of wine.

His DNC speech was a little drawn out, but few people can captivate so many people for so long…

Then again, Ewing is one of those people. He kept audiences captivated his entire career for entire games.

Speaking of careers, Bill Clinton was the freaking President of the United States: something kids and adults alike aspire to be.

But then again Patrick Ewing was a killer pro-basketball player: something kids actually want to do.

As a pro-athlete, I’d say it’s safe to assume that Ewing got a lot of the ladies

But having taken AP US History, I’m pretty sure Bill Clinton did too…

Let’s look at the numbers, shall we?

Bradley Cooper has been nominated for an Academy Award, a Golden Globe, three People Choice Awards, three Teen Choice Awards, five MTV Movie Awards and two Screen Actor’s Guild Awards.

Patrick Ewing was NBA Rookie of the Year (1986), All-NBA First Team (’90), All-NBA Second Team (’88, ’89, ’91, ’92, ’93, ’97); 11-time All-Star; named one of 50 greatest players in NBA history (’96); and a two-time Olympic gold medalist (’84, ’92).

In the end, the seeding came down to the incredible amount of attention Bradley Cooper has received by the readers of this blog and the deplorable lack of sports knowledge by a vast number of people at this school. Who will win? VOTE HERE:
