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?

Best answer: 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.

Best answer: 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?!
