Futurama. The Cinderella. Popeye was knocked out by Chip N' Dale yesterday in a match where he surged ahead at the onset but quickly ran out of spinach and conceded six of the final eight votes to the Rescue Rangers. That leaves us with only Futurama as a bonafide party crasher and the only double-digit seed remaining.
Who: Thirteenth-Seeded Futurama vs. Second-Seeded Rocky and Bullwinkle
The Line: Rocky and Bullwinkle -7.5
Where: Bikini Bottom Regional
When: Right Now thru 10:00am Thursday (due to site maintenence by Vox).
What's at Stake: Obviously a trip to Walla Walla to square off against the winner of Scooby Doo and The Simpsons, but also a chance for Rocky and Bullwinkle to be vindicated as a classic who still finds popularity amongst a new generation of cartoon fans. For Futurama...it's a chance to show that their seed was the worst possible gift they could have been given by the Selection Committee, and throw it right back in their faces. Who would have through that half of the Final Four could potentially be populated by the two Matt Groening teams?
