    Round 1 voting complete. Yes, aparch, you made it out of the first round. Walnut Tree Inn was the Group of Death, La Lanterna the cupcake group.

    Round 2 will be up shortly.

    Momma Cherri's looking like the group of death.

    Re: The 2017 Poser of the Year

    Round 2 voting complete. As expected, Momma Cherri's was the unalloyed group of death, while the cupcake group goes to Oscar's.

    You'll see the quarterfinals in a little bit.

    I'm not sure I've ever even seen a MaizeRage post. He must do some pretty amazing business on game threads.

    He does some nice work in the social issue/pol threads. It's quality, not quantity, that counts with him.
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    I might as well ask. This year the thread titles appear to refer to various obscure (at least to me) restaurants around the world. Why were they picked?

    He really doesn't even post a lot in the game threads. In fact, I'd guess he posts more over here in Cafe now than he does in the game threads.

    If you ever read a one sentence (or maybe two sentence) post in Cafe and think to yourself, "well, that was snarky," it was probably Maize. I know he doesn't like me, primarily due to what he thinks my politics are and the fact that I'm from North Dakota and attended UND. North Dakota fans can sometimes be pretty obnoxious and annoying to blog writers like Maize. But I actually really like his hockey writing and analysis. And his tweets can be pretty funny.
    That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

    Isn’t he in the media business for College Hockey?

    I know he used to attend a lot of games in Mankato.

    I think he started the Western College Hockey blog, and eventually merged it into SBNation's college hockey site, where I think he's the managing editor.

    That’s my understanding as well.

    It's Chris Dilks, the Michigan fan who moonlights as a Minnesota State fan and the SBN College Hockey blogger. You'll see him pop in occasionally to pile on when a conservative is getting pounded. He's the new Foxton.

    Shots fired. Dayum. Wanna know a funny fact? He bankrolled me in my online poker days. 60-40 split his way, which was fine with me. I made my money.

    You have to admit, reading his nastier posts, the style bears an uncanny resemblance.

    So we’ve got Brent, Joe, Kepler, Rover, and Maize poised to go to the finals. Oof. Talk about an upset-free tournament.

    Flag's not even gonna get out of Round 3. That seems like an upset to me.

    It'd be the first time since becoming an entrant that I miss the semis. Not sure if good or bad thing...
