SHOTY Semifinals: No. 3 Karen F. Owen Vs. No. 7 The MachineS

Our lone upset in the quarterfinals was a big one: The Machine edged out LeBron James, dropping the No. 2 seed. No. 3 Karen F. Owen defied Bodog's odds and sadly took out Dude Being Blown By A Dog. Alas.

As always, it is not about the destination but the journey.

No. 3 Karen F. Owen
Penned quite the thesis.
Earns potential book deal. (And movie, of course.)
Terrified the shit out of all of us.

No. 7 The Machine
Emerged from the "brain" of Brian Wilson.
Unmasked as Pat Burrell.
Dressed up for Halloween.
Won World Series.
Showed up on Jay Leno, though I still assume that was Andy Richter in disguise.

All right, time to vote: Who makes the finals, Karen F. Owen, or The Machine?


Polls are open until Friday morning.
