I stand corrected. But never drank nearly all of these. For my mom, don't forget Tab.

And when I was in HS, our cruising cocktail of choice was cheap vodka and some Squirt.

Just a heads up that the cereal committee is put finishing touches on our bracket and a selection show thread will be coming soon. When a time is decided on I'll post in here if anyone wants to be on when selection show goes live.

ESPN personalities (past and present)

Local sports personalities (past and present) - this one could get very interesting. May need a "wrestle-back" bracket.
Speaking of which, did you see that Howie Schwab that used to do Stump the Schwab died?

Comedians.

I've served on committees before and would be up for again.
Speaking of... my brother, Curt Fletcher, is performing at the Des Moines Funny Bone this weekend. He has been a professional comedian for 23 (?) years and has been touring for around 20 years. If anyone needs a good laugh, or wants to heckle a Hawkeye fan, go check it out.

And I agree that we need a comedian tournament at some point.

Are there 64 fast food burgers? I like the idea of fast food restaurants with regions like “burgers”, “Mexican”, “chicken”, “other”

Pizza could be a separate one with regions being delivery, frozen, convenience store (e.g Casey’s, Hunt Brothers), fast casual (e.g. Pie Five, Mod Pizza, Pizza Studio)
I was thinking about this a while back and thought maybe we could just do a chain restaurant tourney.

Some others I would love to do eventually:

Rock bands/artists
Metal bands
Sports stars
Favorite actors/actresses
Vacation spots


I have been sitting on a metal band tournament since last fall that a committee could tweak if we ever decide to do that one. I also have a mega 256 rock band/artist tourney that would have 64 artists competing in the US, 64 in Europe, 64 in Asia, and 64 in South America. I think that is a bit much though.

Favorite actresses inevitably would end up in a barrage of JLH gifs.

I could not name that many bands if I needed to, that is actually quite impressive.

Quandary for cereal tourney ... maybe it's something we'd have to decide at the committee level, but posting here to get max feedback: Do we separate pre-sweetened and non-sweetened into separate regions (like strive for 50/50 balance) or use strict seeding?

Extension of that, I wondered about consideration of cereal companies, but those are more like "conferences" and probably don't need special focus (and there's only about 4 main breakfast-makers anyway).
It doesn't matter, Cinnamon Toast Crunch already won

Either result is good with me as they are my top 2 favorite cereals.
Those are my top two as well. Don't get to eat them very often (wife says too much sugar), so I'll do Honey Bunches of Oats (with almonds). Pretty much the three I stick to the most. During my childhood, ate a lot of Frosted Flakes, Honey Smacks, Cap'n Crunch, and Lucky Charms.

Funny thing is I don't really like Reese's Peanut Butter cups, but the Reese's Puffs cereal I absolutely love

I though usually buy the fareway (here in Iowa) or fill in knockoff brand in your area because while it's lower quality it's half the price. :)
