March Media Madness 2014: Vote For The Sweet 16

TBL-Media-16

Here is the Sweet 16 for our March Media Madness 2014 Tournament. Vote early and often, since you know Mongo Nation will be. Polls close at 10:00pm ET on Wednesday, regardless of whether a TBL staffer remembers to jump back into this post and shut them down.

Sports Talk
1. Mike Francesa vs. 4. Tony Kornheiser/Mike Wilbon

francesa-vs-kornheiserwilbon

New York vs. Washington D.C. Fox Sports vs. ESPN. Mongos vs. casual ESPN viewers over the past decade.

2. Keith Olbermann vs. 6. Scott Van Pelt

olbermann-vs-vanpelt

Two Sportscenter icons. Do you prefer a balanced, full-bodied Merlot or a flaming Martini?

Writers
1. Bill Simmons vs. 12. Gregg Doyel

simmons-vs-doyel

Doyel has already vanquished Le Batard and Nate Silver. Will the Sports Guy be the third ESPN notch on his shillelagh?

7. Peter King vs. 14. Jeff Pearlman

king-vs-pearlmann

One is a longtime fixture at SI. The other used to work at SI and has qualms about the Swimsuit Issue.

Broadcast
1. Brent Musburger vs. 12. Bill Walton

musburger-vs-walton

Both are legends. Both are compelling enough to get away with saying things on air their bosses would rather they not.

7. Chris Fowler vs. 6. Verne Lundquist

fowler-vs-lundquist

Two college football titans. ESPN’s lead announcer and GameDay host vs. CBS’ lead SEC announcer.

Television
16. Charissa Thompson vs. 4. Michelle Beadle

thompson-vs-beadle

Will Charissa Thompson’s magical 16-seed run (taking down Bob Costas and Tim Tebow) stop with her Sportsnation predecessor?

2. Charles Barkley vs. 6. Bob Ley

barkley-vs-ley

The most likable man on TV squares off against perhaps the most venerated figure at ESPN.
