Field of 64 (Seinfeld wins it! Seinfeld wins it! Oh my God, Seinfeld wins it!!!)

    A comment from Zeke on the classic novels thread got me thinking about this. Sports talk radio where I grew up used to come up with fields of 64 all the time, on a variety of subjects, and let callers vote on each individual matchup until there was only one left standing. Could be best movie of all time, best TV show of all time, best QB of all time, etc.

    So I was wondering if anyone would be interested in doing it here. I'd volunteer to do the leg work, but the field of participants would have to be limited as it was in Sheep (along with a hard deadline) and it would have to be a subject I'm familiar with.

    So, anyone up for it?

    We had Soda Wars once. It failed miserably. :D

    We did it with SportsJournalists.com posters for several years as well--I think it was a Songbird project.

    I love the idea--can only imagine some of the posts when the fur flies on a best album, best TV show (Slot Seinfeld against the Simpsons in a regional), best movie.

    I know my appearances here can be spotty, but count me in.

    ESPN did a funny movie bracket. Boy howdy did it suck. You think you bitch about the basketball seedings and picks, well I'm not sure that the NCAA of comedies wouldn't be fourth behind the NIT, CBI and CIT.

    Gone with the Wind.

    No need for the bracket.

    I was the Kevin Stallings of the SJ posters bracket.

    Nope. Casablanca. Because we'll always have Paris.

    Best play of all-time?

    All the nice sports plays(well most of them) are on youtube.

    Vulture just did this for the best TV show of all time, and the finals came down to The Wire and The Sopranos. It was really good.

    What I think would be great is if you had someone designated to argue on behalf of each thing in the brackets. Otherwise, if it's just a vote, big deal. But if some presents one side, someone else the other, then people chime in on both sides to determine a winner of each "game", you've got a great thread.

    Not surprised. Wasn't even the best movie of that year.

    IF we can get this rolling, I'd be in to participate.

    That's a weird list. Richard Petty winning the first "nationally televised" Daytona 500, for example, isn't even in the same league as the 1979 Daytona 500 ("and there's a fight!"). Or even Petty getting his 200th win in the 1984 Firecracker 400 with President Reagan in attendance/flying overhead on Air Force One.
