The 2017 Name Of The Year Bracket

When March Madness comes around, everyone wants to launch a tournament bracket, and many often have nothing to do with basketball. One annual tournament bracket that we all look forward to is the Name of the Year, with 64 names of real people unveiled to be voted on, matchup by matchup. For 2017, the names are as memorable as ever. Who will make it to the final four and the championship? Will it be Kobe Buffalomeat, Alpha McMath, Shaft Cubit, or maybe YourMajesty Lumpkins? No, because those are all in the same region. There's also Fortunate Sithole, Taco Dibbits, Boats Botes, Faraj Fartass, and Marmaduke Trebilcock. And 55 other contenders. Keep up with the tournament progression, and cast your votes, at the Name of the Year website. The full enlargeable bracket is here. -via Deadspin
