The first of the Sweet Sixteen survivors in the Chrotchtangle is Fancy English, Jr., who knocked over a North Carolina bank in the seventies. In my mind’s eye, Fancy was the most genteel bank robber ever to hit the American South. He’s up against another noble name, Sir Fitzroy Waffley (he’s not actually a knight), who edged out Mister Love in the last round. Which will advance to the Elite Eight?
Meanwhile, Ram Amandeep has come far; he’s fresh off of two consecutive upsets. We admit he’s got pluck for a 14-seed. But his time may have run out; #2 Leo Moses Spornstarr tolerates no false idols.
And that’s the end of the Sweet Sixteen — we’re really getting down to the nitty gritty, people. Polls close on Sunday night as usual.
