In a week full of lopsided battles, yesterday’s matchup took the A to Z prize as Zenaida routed Apollonia 81% to 19%. She’ll advance to the Saintly Sixteen where she’ll take on the winner of Nicholas of Myra vs. Rudolph of Gubbio.
Today, we round out the second full week of Lent Madness with another Biblical bracket buster as Ananias faces Photini.
In other news, the Supreme Executive Committee was shocked to learn this week that there is another bracket-style tournament making the rounds. But instead of saints, this one features college basketball teams. What is this…madness?! Fear not, friends. The Lent Madness Legal Team is looking into all of our available options. Stay tuned.
Next week, we’ll finish up the Round of 32 and kick off the Saintly Sixteen on Thursday. But first, enjoy some sabbath time as we collectively rest from our voting labors through the weekend. Don’t worry, though, we’ll be back first thing Monday morning as Damien of Molokai faces Pandita Ramabai.
