Minors Moniker Madness!

Flint_1The NCAA March Madness Basketball Tournament kicked off just about an hour ago, and millions of sports fans are giving it their rapt attention.

In a more perfect world, however, this attention would instead be focused on MiLB.com’s Minors Moniker Madness Tournament. For those who don’t know, Minors Moniker Madness (MMM from here on out) seeks to determine who has the best name in all of Minor League Baseball.

Some background on the tournament can be found here, while analysis of the first round match-ups can be found here, here, here, and here. But, most importantly, one can cast their vote HERE.  The polls were opened on yesterday morning, and first-round voting will continue through Monday.

The tournament is chock full of awesome names, and it goes without saying that opinions will vary. In no particular order, here are my five favorite MMM participants:

— Jetsy ExtranoDusty

— Henry Henry
— Flint Wipke (shown at the top of this post)
— Given Kutz
— Dusty Napoleon (hey, there’s his college photo to the right).

I now call on my legions (read: handful) of readers to do two things for me:

1. Give your own opinions on favorite names in the comments section.
2. Spread the word about MMM! The world needs to know.

Finally, I would like to congratulate myself, as this is Ben’s Biz Blog’s 100th post. Here’s to 450 more.

    Of the remaining contestants in Round 2, here’s my Top 5:

    Keltavious Jones

    Henry Henry

    Gonzalo Gonzalez

    Benito Beato

    Dusty Napoleon

    And an honorable mention goes to Callix Crabbe, for sounding like either a Harry Potter character or a British footballer. Or both.
