MOXIE CRIMEFIGHER? AMATEURS: Name of the Year, a blog that annually selects the name of the year (from a pool comprised of all real names, though there is a heavy emphasis on people from the sporting life), has announced the finalists for this year's Name of the Year. After online voting whittled down a 64-name bracket, it's Barkevious Mingo vs. Iris Macadangdang for all the marbles.

Even though Macadangdang was a #1 seed (probably because she's been a good sport about this whole thing; Mingo was a #4), this seems like an upset to me. Read the bracket. You're telling me Barkevious and Macadangdang are better than Crystal Metheney, Nutritious Love, Velvet Milkman, Uranus Golden, Dr. Shasta Kielbasa, or, says the 14-year-old me, semifamous football player Shavodrick Beaver?

Some Name of the Year history here.
