Besides the NCAA, where else is it March Madness?

There's the NCAA basketball tournament, of course. And The Morning News' Tournament of Books, and Jezebel's 80s-vs-90s thing. But who else is doing some kind of bracket/tournament thingy this month?

NYMag's Vulture blog did a Sitcom Smackdown bracket, which caused widespread [internet] mayhem when Sex and the City won over 30 Rock.

The Atlantic Wire did a Battle of the Brackets last year. Don't see anything similar this year, tho.

After the tournament is over, Seattle sports radio station KJR (and some other sports radio stations steal the idea) holds what it calls The Bigger Dance each year, which is essentially a lad-mag style beauty pageant.

Just saw this fantastic one, "Best Names from the Southern," from the Southern Historical Collection, an archival collection at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill University Library.

Here's the full bracket.

In the first round, Polycarp Cyprian Henkel (with a 1 seed) beat Callender Irving Fayssoux (with an 8 seed). Now Polycarp is going up against Marmaduke Swaim Robins. Who will win? It's just so exciting?!
