Bracket of Awesome: Body Edition Final Four
On the men’s side, No. 1 seed Dwight Howard just eked past U.S. soccer team captain Carlos Bocanegra, while international soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo stayed alive to represent the “beautiful game” in the Final Four with a slim victory over Panthers quarterback Cam Newton. Six-time Olympic medalist Ryan Lochte blew Jets quarterback Tim Tebow out of the water, garnering 73 percent of the vote, while soccer’s David Beckham beat decathlete Trey Hardee in a photo finish, slipping into the Final Four by the slimmest of margins.
On one side of the bracket one of soccer’s best strikers will face off against the NBA’s best center; on the other side, one of the biggest names in swimming will take on a legendary footballer nearing the end of his career. Will the great gams of the two svelte soccer players send them to the championship or will Howard’s Superman-like shape and Lochte’s toned torso make it a battle of former Olympic champs?
