Summary[]

Once again, Griffin and David have unleashed another March Madness bracket pitting directors against one another.

Mostly abandoning the drivetime sports talk radio satire, the hosts walk through the recent match-ups and discuss all the drama! To get in on the daily action go to https://twitter.com/blankcheckpod and vote everyday in March starting at noon EST. [1]

Milestones and Ephemera[]

  • Mixed it up, tried to keep the Blankies on their toes!
  • David begged for Paul W.S. Anderson, and Griffin stipulated that it would have to be against Paul Thomas Anderson.
  • They introduce the idea of sliding in a little May!
  • Ben is a little head on spider legs cheering for Carpenter.
  • David didn't mean to put two of the four women against each other (but he did). Optics aren't great. David got a Bad Card.

Quotes[]

BEN: No Bay! Raimi all day!!
----------
GRIFFIN: I'm gonna leave the listeners with this. Here's the note I'm gonna end on, and it's a rhetorical question, and Ben I want you to leave in three minutes of silence for them to think on this. Okay? Here's the rhetorical question I leave for the listeners—
BEN: Yeah.
GRIFFIN: Has there ever, ever been a more apt song title than Roundball Rock? Silence begins now.
[THREE MINUTES OF SILENCE, NO END THEME.]
