MARCH (whale) MADNESS!
While you're Social Distancing, help us choose the winner in a battle between the Baleen League and the Toothed League: 16 brackets will determine the Cetacean Champion of the World!
Due to other tournaments being cancelled to covid-19 we have allowed a Wild Card bracket to allow for our friends the Manatee, Whale Shark, Great White Shark, and North Atlantic Swordfish to compete in these games.
Vote daily, each Friday we will choose the winning member from each "game" who will then advance to the next round, until all are vanquished and we crown the 2020 Cetacean Champion.
Personally, we'd love to see the manatee in the Final Four, just sayin'
