Friday, 9 a.m. — The polls for that week close. Any comment added after this time cannot be considered for tie-breaking purposes or for Comment of the Week. They'd still be just as entertaining, so don't let that stop you from posting a comment after that time.
Friday, noon — That week's winner will be announced along with a recap of the fight and the Comment of the Week. The person who supplies the Comment of the Week wins nothing but a shout-out bragging rights for a week.
All times Mountain Time (Sorry Eastern and Pacific Time Zones, but the world does NOT revolve around you.)
- One vote per reader, please.
- These hypothetical fights take place while the presidents were in office, not while they were at their physical peak.
- These fights will be of a "two man enter, one man leave" nature, only we will go a bit beyond the Thunderdome. There will be no weapons, nor will any participant be wearing any armor. It will be more like Fight Club, only people are allowed to talk about it.
- For your convenience, an updated photo of the entire bracket can be viewed by clicking on the tab labeled "The Bracket!" Below that, you will also be able to click on each participant and learn who they are.
If there are an equal number of comments for each participant, then the two authors will decide the winner — Two Angry Men style. We imagine that would be a fierce debate peppered with brutal personal attacks, but one winner will emerge.
Its Font Deserves To Be Italicized and in Bold

He is also proud of the fact that he can tell a hawk from a handsaw regardless of the direction of any prevailing winds. He would tell you whom he picked to win this silly little tournament, but then he would have to kill you.
