So here we are at the Final Four. The Elite 8 games saw some upsets, as two 1-seeds fell, leading to an unexpected #2 vs. #6 matchup here in Indianapolis/St. Louis/San Antonio (circle one). Here's the way the bracket looks heading into the penultimate round:

We've got Gus Johnson and Bill Raftery calling the game. Teddy Valentine leads an experienced officiating crew. The inventions are ready. The fans are ready. Let's get this thing underway.

For your sake, these previews will be 100% pun-free. God knows all of you need a break.

(1) Television vs. (1) Telephone: This side of the bracket saw both the top seeds advance to set up a matchup between these two powerhouses. I think any of us would have a difficult time giving up either of these, but when it comes down to it, a decision has to be made. Who will be the last 1-seed standing? It's up to you, readers.

(2) Internet vs. (6) Antibiotics: Perhaps the most shocking result of the tournament saw the voters taking necessity over luxury, as the automobile was voted out in favor of antibiotics. This matchup sees antibiotics moving on to face another invention widely-viewed as a luxury item -- although some would argue the absolute necessity of having the internet in today's world. Again, you have the final say here. Make your vote heard.

  2. antibiotics has no business being in the final 4. they only apply to bacterial diseases. the virus' feel a bit left out right now. internet is taking home the hardware.
