Watching the votes pour in for #1 seed Brian Ballard and #16 seed Marc Reichelderfer, I am reminded of the fight scene from Rocky IV.
This is just a street fight.
It’s a question of who wants it most most.
At the beginning of the fight, Ballard, like Ivan Drago battered underdog Reichelderfer. But Reichelderfer refused to go down and punched his way ahead of Ballard over the weekend. But now, in the closing hours of TallyMadness, Ballard is counter-punching and leads Reichelderfer by three points with five hours left in first-round voting.
Does Reichelderfer have any punches left in him?
Read tomorrow’s Sunburn for the final result.
