Last voting session: Cyprus beats Hector 8-4 and Ignacio beats Ichiro 9-3.
This week's next match-ups are:
From the "BIBLICAL" region, number 8 seed Ephraim faces number 9 seed Marcus, and in the "VANILLA" region, number 8 seed Garvin faces number 9 seed Garrison.
Gar: Another tough round this week. Ephraim is the younger of Joseph's sons, and means "very fruitful". Marcus is a form of "Mark" and means "warlike". I like both names, but since Marcus/Mark is a little bit too common, my vote is for Ephraim. As Garvin versus Garrison, Garvin to me sounds a little bit too much like a bastardization of "Marvin". So I'll go with Garrison for the upset!
Siobhan: We are getting to the closer match-ups. I have appreciated the name Ephraim since it is a unique name that is not so commonly used. I am reminded of the WB series, Everwood. Ephraim was a gifted pianist who transformed music into emotion. =) As for the second match up, I am all for Garrison as well. Garrison stands for spear-fortified town; protection, stronghold. Definitely manly characteristics!
Gar: Wait, so we have nothing to disagree about? How boring.
Siobhan: So you don't have anything to say about Everwood? Gar said," I am not taking your bait." Ok, so readers, that means we will have to make another post today with other match ups. Take care.
