Grantland.com has set up a March Madness-style bracket on Facebook to vote on the greatest character from The Wire. Have fun!
Also, I’d like to give my support to two upsets in today’s match-ups:
- #7 Frank Sobotka over #2 Prop Joe - I know Joe seemed cool, but Frank Sobotka was an incredibly well developed character. For him to be only a 7 seed can only be explained by a lack of respect for the excellent 2nd season.
- #6 D’Angelo over #3 Snoop - Same situation here: D’Angelo was a complex character with a great arc and Snoop was a chick with a weird voice. I love her character, but she’s got nothing on Dee who should have been ranked much higher.
