Brian's 2013 Facebook Elimination Grand Champion - Uncle Ian
So it's mostly pointless, and it certainly alienated some people, and of course it was completely self-indulgent and irresponsible, but my God that Facebook Elimination Tournament is fun.
If we weren't Facebook friends then, of course, you had no clue what was happening...hell, even if we were. I might very well have deleted you before things played out. In the end it was June's brother, Ian, who won. In fact, he cruised to the win. He never really had anyone to slow down his buzz saw through the match-ups, at least, not until the Final Four.
He's my brother-in-law, sure, but before he was that he quickly morphed from little brother to best friend. He's a brilliant, brilliant young dude, and it makes me smile that his nieces get one more amazing version of what a man is supposed to look like by just watching him...we just won't show them the photo above, and keep some of our favorite stories more quiet than others.
Congratulations Uncle Ian...after two weeks of rude indulgence, and unnecessary relationship abuse, you found yourself my only Facebook friend...for about five minutes. Nice work.
