Okay, so there was way too much time between part 1 and part 2 of round 2. I will be blaming that on the raging cold I am currently suffering through (even though I didn’t get it until today). I am miserable and therefore everyone should be miserable (especially those items that lost last week).
Speaking of which, our winners from the last competition were:
1. Funeral Potatoes (despite heavy anti-tuber lobbying), 10. Johnny Lingo (despite heavy admin lobbying), 5. Missions, and 4. The Mormon Tabernacle Choir. Hey, 3 out of 4 ain’t bad!
Today’s contestants are:
1. Arnold Friberg vs. 9. Dear John Letters
In the last round, Arnold Friberg flexed his Swartzeneggaresque muscles and crushed Brandon Flowers like the little girly man he is, 86 to 14. Meanwhile, Dear John Letters failed to let Dale Murphy down gently (*sob*), 84-16.
My prediction: In an upset special, Dear John Letters leave Arnold Friberg crying over the fallen Nephites.
2. The Christus vs. 5. The Cultural Hall
In the last round, The Christus’ heart was made of stone, resulting in unsatisfying NCMO, 74-26. Also, the Cultural Hall closed its stage before Gladys Knight could perform, 79-21.
My Prediction: The Cultural Hall represents the center of your church, but the Christus represents the center of the church.
7. Cheerios at Sacrament Meeting vs. 14. Delivering Meals to the sick and recently delivered
In the last round, Cheerios fed the poor and impoverished, while Pyramid Schemes just made more of them. Cheerios, 72-28. Also, Meals were delivered to Janice Kapp Perry in order to help her through her difficult loss, 66-34.
My Prediction: Another upset, with meals delivering a body blow to cheerios.
4. Temple Square vs. 11. The Mission Field = not Utah
In the last round, Temple Square inhabited the space set aside for President Kimball’s resemblance to Yoda, to the tune of 66-34. Also, the Mission Field excluded not only Utah, but also Lengthen Your Stride, 72-28. It was not a good round to be President Kimball.
My prediction: This is tough to call, as both elements are distinctedly Utahn (which some have argued to be a strike against some contenders). However, the Salt Lake Temple is the Sun to the Mission Field’s Moon and Stars, I think.
