|"You will always remember this as the day you almost caught...Captain Jack Sparrow!"|
Congratulations, Captain Jack Sparrow! You've won our third annual Geekdom Madness tournament and the first Tournament of Losers! After getting trounced in the 2014 preliminaries, you shot back with a vengeance - out of 32 formerly disgraced candidates you've come out on top and defeated some of the most formidable competitors in the game! You've really fetched that horizon, savvy?
I want to thank everyone who voted in this tournament. I hope you had as much fun participating as I had administrating.
Plans for the future: New brackets for 2017-2018, another Tournament of Losers in 2019, and a Tournament of Champions in 2020. Mark your calendars, and nominate future competitors below!
Here's the final breakdown. See you next year!
