Penn Does March Madness, Volume II

March Madness, that college basketball brouhaha, is all the rage out there in the real world. Inside the Penn Bubble, however, the gods and goddesses have spoken, and Penn Madness is upon us. Yes, it’s back. Round Two.

Here’s how it works: we’ve made a bracket featuring Penn’s latest and (arguably) greatest people, places and things, and you get to vote on their fights to the death– the winner being crowned as Champion of This Little Part of the Internet. Over the course of the next few days, your votes will determine the winners who will go on to compete against new competitors before the champion is determined. See, it’s like March Madness, but without having to pretend you care about basketball. Sound easy? Neat. Take a look at the competitors below and check back later today to vote in Round 1!

Categories and Team Descriptions:

Bar No One Ever Goes To Ever
Crave: The Crave is the Rave’s new bar. Stop trying to make Crave happen. It’s not going to happen.
Atlantis: You can doggy bag your Blooming Onion from the nearby Chili’s. (Note: Fried onion fritters are not legal tender for Atlantis performers.)

Prediction: Atlantis is below Chili’s. ATLANTIS IS BELOW CHILI’S!

Robot Isn’t Good At Doing Robot Things, Is Funny

Even if you have no idea what’s happening, it’s pretty funny to watch the ominous-sounding “Quadrotor” fail all over the place. Tech blog Gizmodo thought it was cute, too.
