Deadspin SHOTY Tournament: Ben Roethlisberger Vs. Joe Mikulik

All right, after what appears to be an easy victory for Matt Leinart last week, fellow losing-team quarterback Ben Roethlisberger enters the fray this week in the Deadspin Sportshuman Of The Year Tournament. (We're calling it "SHOTY.") He takes on famous freakout minor league manager Joe Mikulik in another first-round matchup.


The new graphic there, along with the full bracket after the jump, is another work from the genius mind of Jim Cooke, who famously did our Hall of Fame graphics. The man is, well, the man.

But for now ... to today's matchup. Here's the No. 6 vs. No. 11 tapetale!

No. 6 Seed: Ben Roethlisberger
2006 Highlights
Showed us just how to drink like a champion.
Celebrated winning a Super Bowl by cutting his hair.
Crashed his helmetless head into something made of concrete.
Lost an appendix.
Accepted that his team wasn't very good anymore.

No. 11 Seed: Joe Mikulik
2006 Highlights
Lost his goddamned mind. That's really enough. If you haven't watched the video, we highly encourage you to watch his meltdown again.


So, go vote: Who advances to the Elite Eight?
