LET'S GET IT ON!

For this Throwdown tournament, the upper seed will select three (3) topics from three (3) different sports. The lower seed will select one of those topics and start the Throwdown.

HOWEVER... if the two Throwdowners can agree on a topic that is not listed, I will allow it. In this event, the lower seed must start the Throwdown as well.

Here are the match-ups:

(1) Bigalke vs. (16) Gu3

(8) Lana vs. (9) Nickb23

(4) Denis24 vs. (13) Dyhard

(5) Hyped78 vs. (12) Roberts#1

(6) PhillyEagles36 vs. (11) Agrippa

(3) DetroitFan vs. (14) Tha Fizz

(7) lakers#1 vs. (10) 0x NBA/NFL Champion

(2) Porkins vs. (15) travis31

Now, some rules.

1) There is to be absolutely no FanMailing or GroupMailing of your Throwdown link whatsoever, with the sole exception of to myself or Pitt so that we can publicize the Throwdown. Those who are found to be doing so will be booted from the tournament and will have their BVOF membership thrown into jeopardy.

2) There will be a losers' bracket for this tournament... so don't despair if you are eliminated early.

3) The winner of this tournament will be the outright holder of the BVOF Heavyweight Title Belt.
