As you all know by now thanks to my weekly reminding, The Muppet Madness Tournament is in full-swing. From the minds who bring you The MuppetCast and ToughPigs, this tournament is proving to be one of the most-visited and successful Muppet fan-made ventures in years.
This week brings us The Elite 8–the semi-semi-finals for those of you who have never existed near a television that gets ESPN in the month of March. The final eight Muppets on the bracket are Kermit the Frog, Fozzie Bear, Cookie Monster, Bert and Ernie, Wembley Fraggle, Sprocket, Skeeter, and Bear (from the Big Blue House, don’t ya know). How’s your bracket doing?
But this week there’s also a special twist: The Resurrection Round. This week only, you can vote for any one Muppet who has already been eliminated. So if you’re still reeling over the loss of Hoggle, or think that Telly Monster deserves a second shot at the title, or you have sense and know that Gonzo deserves a better seeding than he got… now is your chance to prove it!
So what are you sitting here reading this for? Go vote! (Unless you’ve already voted in the past 12 hours… In which case, wait 12 hours and then go vote!)
Special thanks to Steve Swanson of The MuppetCast, and Ryan Roe and Joe Henes of ToughPigs for organizing this fantastic tournament!
