Milo Advances Again! Final Four Set
This was a brutal round — hence the delay. I know there are some difficult ones in here.
Let’s start with Felix vs. Isaac.
Unfortunately, we can’t talk about Felix vs. Isaac without talking about Milo vs. Rafael. I should try to write around this. I should try to hide what really happened. But I can’t.
There was some smoke-filled room action involved — a quid pro quo. I’m a Felix fan. Ashley’s a Milo fan. She preferred Isaac over Felix but wasn’t passionate about it. I preferred Rafael over Milo but wasn’t passionate about it.
So we made a trade. She got Milo. I got Felix. I know. It was dirty. I’m going to go hose myself off in the back yard.
Isaiah is really trouncing. He had no trouble with Julian. I know, Julian is cool. It’s got that gay dictator thing going for it. But Isaiah is really playing well.
So finally, let’s deal with the death of Levi.
Levi is a family name. Apparently he was an outlaw in the old west.
Levi is also a strong Old Testament, Hebrew name. Strong.
It was a heavy favorite going into the tournament. It has family ties. It sounds good. It’s apparently an up-and-coming choice nationwide. It reflects our western roots.
And there’s something else: My parents have told me for years they were going to name me Levi and I’ve wished occasionally that they had.
Somehow, despite all of this momentum, Levi falls. How? It’s gotten some kind of trashy feel neither of us can seem to shake (To Levi Johnston: No offense intended. Keep it real. This doesn’t apply to you at all).
On the other hand, though we are pasty white people, we really like the name Joaquin. It may not win, but it beats Levi this round.
