Day 122 - Championship Round

Day 122.

We've analyzed the contestants, we've dissected the match-ups, we've picked the winners. The Sweet Sixteen is over, the Elite Eight is history, and now, the Final Four has come to a glorious finish. By the end of this post, you will know the regional champions representing the Julie and Julia sides of our Best Supporting Character Julie & Julia March Madness Tournament!

So brace yourselves, people--this is the Final Four. Winners in bold.

Game 13: Simone Beck (1) vs. Dorothy McWilliams a.k.a. Julia's Sister (3) - Jane Lynch steals the ball with 0:03 left in the fourth quarter and hits a buzzer-beater to become the Julia Regional Champion. It's the upset of the century! Well, not really, as these two were as evenly matched as you could possibly get in this tournament. But damn, right? Simone Beck is out. I suppose she didn't do enough of ze wooooork that it takes to become a true champion.

Game 14: Julie's Cat (8) vs. Ernestine (2) - I really, really should have seeded Julie's Cat higher. I wouldn't even consider this to be an upset. Julie's cat has been fan favorite ever since this tournament started and might just be unstoppable going into the finals. Ernie didn't even stand a chance. And to be frank, I'm absolutely terrified of this fiery-furred lioness.

Also, it has been brought to my attention that I have now officially hit the 1/3 mark for my year of watching Julie & Julia every day. Pretty weird, right?
