The time has come to crown the Official NBA Draft Lottery Mascot for our beloved Minnesota Timberwolves. Some of the candidates for the Wolves draft lottery didn't fall into the Athlete, Celebrity, or Movie/TV Character regions, so we created a region of complete randomness where the most zany of nominees will face off. If you thought the matchups of the Celebrity & Athlete regions were crazy, you ain't seen nothing yet! Day 3 of the 64 contestant tournament will be the 16 members of our Random Region. We'll give a brief description of each matchup followed by a poll where you can vote on who should move on to the second round. Here we go!
The Celebrity Region can be found HERE.
The Athlete Region can be found HERE.
Wolverine vs. Apache Longbow Helicopter
The first matchup features one of the most badass fighting machines of the comic book world up against one of the most badass fighting machines of the real world. The adamantium that flows through Wolverine's vains makes him nearly indestructible. But the key word there is nearly. We'll see if he can sink his claws in and take down the most advanced technology that modern battlefield warfare has to offer.

The time has come to crown the Official NBA Draft Lottery Mascot for our beloved Minnesota Timberwolves. Day 2 of the 64 contestant tournament will be the 16 members of our Athlete Region. We'll give a brief description of each matchup followed by a poll where you can vote on who should move on to the second round. Here we go!
The Celebrity Region can be found HERE.
Joe Mauer vs. Robert Swift
It's Baby Jesus matched up against an abject NBA Lottery Pick failure. Some might blame Swift's failings on his knee injury(ies?), but look at him. He was doomed to fail. Baby Jesus, on the other hand, can do no wrong. I'm pretty sure he is about to cure cancer while rescuing orphans from burning buildings, all-the-while hitting CC Sabathia fastballs for 550 feet homeruns.

The time has come to crown the Official NBA Draft Lottery Mascot for our beloved Minnesota Timberwolves. Kicking off the 64 contestant tournament will be the 16 members of our Celebrity Region. We'll give a brief description of each matchup followed by a poll where you can vote on who should move on to the second round. Here we go!
Chuck Norris vs. Mr. T
This is a classic battle of two of the baddest mamma jamma's in history. These two manage to tread the fine line of being incredibly ridiculous and yet incredibly deadly at the same time. I can't think of a better way to kick off this tournament!

Round 1 of the TWB NBA Draft Lottery Mascot Challenge was a rousing success! We now up the stakes as last week's winners face off against each other for a shot at the Sweet 16. There will be humor, surprises, and fights to the death! What are you waiting for? Let's vote!
Joe Mauer vs. Adrian Peterson
After knocking out their first round opponents, the two biggest stars on the Minnesota sports scene will face off in a battle for a spot in the Sweet 16. I'm sure that this one will come down to whether we have more Twins or Vikings fans on the site, however, as an outside observer, I pose this question: If Adrian were charging down the 3rd base line towards Mauer at home plate, does Adrian kill him, or does Mauer hold onto the ball and save the run?

Picture life on some idle Tuesday, mid-Fall in the year 201x. Whatever age you happen to be, picture you live a ho-hum routine, living in a podunk town. You don't live a very exciting life, but your job happens to be kind of entertaining and interesting. You aren't particularly good at your job, but pretend that it involves presenting to a small audience on a daily basis. While you have an interesting job, you aren't the best speaker in the world. You stutter at times, are not persuasive, and tell bad jokes. However, the catch is you are extremely good looking. For the most part. You have a large mole on your face, but it is only visible from a certain angle. Similar in concept to Barbara Streisand's Toyota Camry-sized nose. However, due to your looks, audiences remain more engaged with your dry material despite the minor abnormality.
Now let's take this a step further. It's Tuesday and you have no presentations that day. You stumble into work late, rather unmotivated, as you have certainly been lately. You fill up your coffee from the office coffee machine and prepare your agenda for the remainder of the week. Suddenly your phone rings and your boss wants to talk. Terrified, you stumble down to your boss' office, and slowly open the door.
"Sit down," your boss says. You take a seat on the black leather chair and struggle adjusting the arm rests. Your boss chomps on a frosted, rainbow sprinkle covered donut before presenting you with a 10- page document you barely understand.
"So, I want to talk to you about your performance. Basically we understand you aren't great at your job, however you have a component that is rare. You, son, are damn sexy. With that said, I am here to present you with a 400% increase in your salary."
