Bracket Battle 2016: Round 4 Recap

Level 15

1602_BracketBattle_Captains_525x133.jpg

The Quartermaster round had a landslide victory on one side & a match-up that was almost too close to call on the other.

Han Solo continued his winning streak despite his mixed popularity after causing two huge upsets in rounds 2 & 3 (sorry Trekkies).

Captain Crunch didn’t go quietly though, he still managed to steal over 10% of the vote.

However, Crunch can’t take all the credit, most of his votes were probably from upset Picard & Kirk fans as evidenced by shuth’s comment: “I rebelled and voted for Crunch after the Picard vs Solo debacle!

Captain America has quietly moved his way through each round & manages to take out Captain Jack Sparrow as he heads into the finals.

cahunt would like to remind you to “Vote Captain America and make Thwack Great Again!!!!!

Did anyone predict this final match-up from the beginning?

It’s Han Solo vs Captain America battling it out in the final round!

O Captain! My Captain! The battle’s nearly done,

As our 4th bracket battle comes to a close, we hope you at least had fun.

Whether your captain carries a blaster pistol or shield,

It’s up to you to decide who you would follow into the battlefield.

Crown the ultimate captain we will—vote you must,

Don’t be late, the polls close April 10th at dusk.

  Captain America

is the best.

If you are voting for Solo, I have one question:

I wonder how Solo would have fared before the release of Episode VII?

either way Disney is the winner !!

Honestly, the left hand bracket is stunning.  As a popularity contest goes, I realize it means little.  But I honestly thought most Thwack members would recognize the experience, maturity, training, and ethics of Picard.  Or the leadership superiority of Kirk over Solo.

How could America conquer Jack Sparrow (a rogue and a scallywag), but not take an immediate big lead over Solo--another rogue and scallywag?

For that matter, how could Sparrow NOT take out Solo?

There are too many memes out there to not share a few more:
