2020 Bracket Battle: Reviver Edition – 16 Survive!

Level 12

We have one round behind us and many still to go. 16 competitors rose up to make it to the second round.  We have a strong list of sentimental favorites, ready to battle it out for the chance to live another day.

 

It’s not surprising, given the theme of this year’s battle, that there are some heartbreakers here. Well, heartbreakers for me and the other planners of the bracket. Alas, it’s all “spoilers” for River Song despite the fact that Black Widow already has her swan song movie scheduled for release. Donny was clearly out of his element against Coach. And, Littlefoot’s mom had but a moment before being SOUNDLY trounced by Mufasa.

 

There was only one close call in the early matchups (Maude Flanders coming in from behind to sweep the victory away from Charlotte), but I suspect it will get harder to make the call as we get deeper. Here is where we stand as we roll over into the second round:

 

Ned Stark vs. Boromir – NED STARK

“Coach” from Cheers vs. Donny from The Big Lebowski – “COACH”

Maximus from Gladiator vs. Yondu from Guardians of the Galaxy – YONDU

Seymour from Futurama vs. Old Yeller – OLD YELLER

Lennie from Of Mice and Men vs. Beth from Little Women – LENNIE

Goose from Top Gun vs. Apollo Creed – GOOSE

Wash from Firefly vs. Quint from Jaws – WASH

The Iron Giants vs. K-2SO – THE IRON GIANT

King Kong from King Kong vs. Bing Bong from Inside Out – KING KONG

Black Widow from The Avengers vs. River Song from Dr. Who – BLACK WIDOW  

Charlotte from Charlotte’s Web vs. Maude Flanders from The Simpsons - MAUDE FLANDERS

Mufasa vs. Littlefoot’s Mom – MUFASA

Snape from Harry Potter vs. Hodor from Game of Thrones – SNAPE

Barb from Stranger Things vs. Li’l Sebastian from Parks and Rec – BARB

Bubba from Forrest Gump vs. Wilson from Cast Away – BUBBA

Jack from Titanic vs. Matthew from Downton Abbey – JACK

 

It’s time to check out the updated bracket & start voting in the Round of 16!

About the Author
I am not a native of the Geek Kingdom, but I have been granted permanent legal resident status.  I find your culture intriguing and seek to study it closely so that I might help the rest of the world better understand your needs, motivations, and strange rituals. Somewhere in 1997, I discovered that I possess a pretty decent ability to take complex, technical "mumbo-jumbo" and explain it to anybody's grandmother.  Thus, a career was born.  And now, I run SolarWinds' corporate marketing and PR programs.  (So, if you are ever struck with a sudden and pressing need to declare your undying love of SolarWinds to a Network World reporter, feel free to call me.  I can make that dream happen.) I married a geek and am pretty sure that our two boys are already displaying the tell-tale signs of geek.  And while I have been known to kid about those with a professed love of technology...  it has changed my life for the better.  And no, Spock is not a superhero.
