Meryl Streep vs. Yakov Smirnoff; LeBron James advances

Yesterday‘s contest was lively. The two best arguments both favor LeBron.

From Manuel:

And King James said unto them, What seemeth you best I will do. And the king stood by the gate side, and all the people came out by hundreds and by thousands.

And from Zbicyclist followed by Dalton:

LeBron has been in the NBA finals for many successive years. This year, the Lakers may not even make the playoffs. LeBron needs something to do this spring. Let’s have him talk.

Coach always said, “Try your hardest. If you don’t succeed, you can always get an ironic invitation to speak at an imaginary seminar as a consolation prize.”

There was one other good comment but I don’t want to mention it again or someone might try to run me over next time I’m in Hyde Park.

And . . . today we conclude round 2 with an unseeded person from New Jersey vs. an unseeded person whose name ends in f. Whaddya want: a fake but convincing Polish accent, or a real but exaggerated Russian accent? Your call.

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