It’s been over 3 MONTHS since I’ve last written here. What a slacker!
I have tested recipes to write up, and I have science stories to tell, but… it’s March, and the most important thing to happen in March is, of course, the Baby Animal March Squee Madness Tournament.
This year, rather than host it here at fuzzy science, we’re moving our operation to the Big Time. At squeemadness.com you can see two years‘ worth of brackets and winners, read this year’s contender bios (coming soon), and most importantly, vote in the 2013 tournament! Follow us @squeemadness and get in on the awesome.
PS: Sure, we’re aware that @BuzzFeedAnimals is trying to mimic our tourney, but they a) are late to the game, b) have a confusing prediction step in their bracket, and c) have included adult animals. COME ON. We all know baby animals are where it’s at.
After 4 days, 382 votes, and at least 15 arguments about how the hedgehog was robbed, I give you the 2012 March Squee Champion: PIGGEH!
Thanks to everyone who voted, cheered, ridiculed, and of course SQUEEed through the last week – it was a blast. We’re already compiling competitors for next year!
Well folks, it’s come down to this:
Representing the Western Conference, weighing in at 60 pounds, we have the hope of the Great White North: The polah bear. He enjoys snow, ice, swimming, and devouring seals. He battles our Eastern Conference champion: Piggeh. Weighing a massive 5 pounds, this tough little guy enjoys making friends with spiders, and occasionally hunting for truffles. Who will be Squee Champion?! You have until 9:00p EDT to decide!
Posted March 21, Round 2 summary:
It’s March Madness time, which, for those of us who care nothing for basketball, means it’s time for the Baby Animal March Squee Madness Bracket!!! This year’s finals will happen over 4 days (a change from last year’s single-day event).
