I don't have a good feeling about this one. We'll probably get 3 votes with me Ironman and Red Stripe.

Are you guys serious? I mean, i can see a lot of states winning out over Nevada, but Iowa? IOWA? Home of, let's see, corn and Des Moines. And let me tell you something, if you find yourself lonely and in need of legal, semi-consensual sex, you're not going to Des Moines, got it? You're going to Nevada.

I could go into a million reasons why Nevada beats Iowa, but I don't get it anyway.


Side note, in the race for most boring states, I'd put Iowa somewhere between 49 and 50.

Ahhhhhh come on, why did Iowa have to get paired up against Nevada. I would probably vote for Nevada against any other state besides Iowa, and maybe NY or Cali. Come on ironman, you could've used your special bracketcreator powers to have them face North Dakota or West Virginia in the first round. :,-( :-/

Why on Earth would Iowa beat Nevada???

And on top of that, how did Iowa get lumped together with NY and California???

Oh, nevermind... you're from Iowa... sorry for badmouthing your state, but you gotta admit, Iowa isn't as good as Nevada.

I mean, if Pennsylvania gets paired up with a "cool" state, you can believe I'll vote against.
