March Madness: Day 2


Each weekday for the next two weeks, Torontoist is facing off local memes and blog drama in a tournament-style ladder and you, the reader, decide the outcome.


View the full ladder here. Some highlights from yesterday’s matches:

Jane Jacobs makes Yonge-Dundas look square (107-95): The usually untouchable Jacobs was thrown off her game early on by anti-gun rallies, massive video billboards and a late-game PR stunt by a chewing gum company, but pulled ahead with minutes to go. Kyle Rae grabs an assist for a slam dunk by Metropolis.

Power Plant burns Megabins (70-66): In a close mid-day victory, Torontonians made it know that they prefer air pollution to visual pollution, and would rather have a clean streetscape than clean air. Zany!

Islands silence the Docks (105-35): Residents of Ward Island grabbed points early in the game by distracting the Docks with noise complaints. Reggaeton nights get put on the bench in the second half.
