Meme Madness: Boulevard Regional First Round

In the vortex of large-scale athletic emptiness until football season begins again, we're passing the days here at Rock M Nation with Meme Madness, a 32-entry, bracket style blowout to determine the best theme/inside joke RMN has to offer. The full bracket can be found here.

Today, we feature the 1 v. 8 matchup in the Boulevard Regional.

No. 1 Bacon vs No. 8 Laffy Saffy

vs

Big Meme Conf. (Misc.)

Meme USA Conf. (Basketball)

When we came up with the idea for Front Page Friday here at Rock M Nation, we hoped to spur user-based contribution to the site and spark some great discussion about Mizzou athletics. Instead, we became a full-service publicist for the bacon/fatty foods industry.

The fact that we consider this as a "pro" and not a "con" only further testifies to our love of bacon around these parts.

If Wikipedia is looking for something to link to as a prime example of bacon mania, Rock M Nation might be it. Just to take a short trip through history, let's take a look at a selected sample of bacon references on RMN:

-- Things to do with bacon

-- Bacon Cheese Pizzaburger

-- Bacon Beeritos

-- The Bacon Explosion Wellington

-- Baconhenge

Props go out to ghtd36 for coming up with this nickname for Justin Safford, but you'd by lying to yourself if you thought this meme had a shot in this tournament.

Laffy Saffy avoided overall No. 1 seed Asian Kid in the first round but should be yet another No. 8 seed to fall in the first round, and understandably so.

However, you can't say enough about the upside for Laffy Saffy, both as a basketball player AND as a meme. Both came on strong at the end of the season with smart efforts and underrated contribution. Expect an increased role in both when the 2009-10 basketball season tips off.
