Nerds on the Rocks: Nerd Bowl Draft Pool
The Superbowl is the biggest event in all of sports-dom. Most of us on Nerds on the Rocks really don’t watch it though, but we want to get into the spirit.
That is why for the first time ever, we are going to have the Nerd Bowl. And we want you to help us out. On the Feb 3rd edition of Nerds on the Rocks (too lazy to do the math on which episode that is), we will be having a draft. A draft of whom you may ask? Well that is up to you, we want your suggestion for fictional characters, doesn’t matter if from books, movies, comics, TV shows, manga, you name it! From this list, we shall create our draft pool.
Then on Superbowl Weekend, we shall pit all of the hosts team against each other, and have you pick a winner!
Sounds great in my head, we shall see how it all works out!
Just some basic ground rules though, for the sake of simplicity, if a character is fictional butÂ portrayedÂ by multiple actors (James Bond, Doctor Who) it still counts as the same character. However, if a character has different people take up the mantle it counts (Bruce, Dick and Terry all count as 3 different Batman or Peter, Ben and Miles as 3 different Spider-man).
So be creative. Have fun! And leave your picks in the comments section.
Jack Bauer, Michael Scott, Master Chief, Santa, and Zack Morris
