The Great Wings Over Bracket Pt. 5: Chalk It Up

Don’t you hate it when this happens? That one guy in your pool picks all of the No. 1 seeds in his final four, and gets them all right. Meanwhile, despite your meticulous research into sleepers, injuries, and play styles, you flounder. You crumple your bracket up and chuck it in the trash and swear you’ll never play again.

We all saw it coming, but your Final Four is now set in stone. Honey Bar-B-Que’s dominance continues, and while Cruisin’ Altitude has legitimate firepower, it’s hard to see it stopping the presumed champ. Sweet Chili and Waffle Fries will go to war in a matchup that could be decided by a few votes. The winner of that matchup, though, will need to fire on all cylinders to beat HBBQ. A side dish winning in the final four would certainly be a shock, but it’s hard to call chalk matchup results a particular surprise.

There’s very little I can say that hasn’t been said, so I’ll leave you to vote. Remember: you’re doing God’s work.
