Ellen DeGeneres vs. LeBron James (3); Pele advances

Not a lot yesterday; maybe Phil‘s right that the formation of the brackets is sometimes more fun than the actual competitions. Anyway, best argument came from Ethan:

We’ve not thought at all about language. I think modern Portuguese might do better in Columbia’s neighborhood than classic French. Laplace would write equations in a universal language but Pele could show us stuff that didn’t require words.

(I started out expecting the language argument to favor Pele, convinced myself otherwise, then convinced myself back.)

This is pretty much all we’ve got, so I’ll take it.

And today we have two leaders in their respective fields, each of whom has displayed longevity while remaining outspoken. A few months ago, I’d’ve said LeBron was an easy win here, but given the Lakers’ recent performance on the court, I dunno. What do you say?

Again, here’s the bracket and here are the rules.
