The Elite EIGHT ----
It's been mostly chalk with a few key upsets. Ovi and Gandalf are the cinderella darlings!
#1 Sputnik vs. #5 Sochi
#2 Fivel vs. #11 Ovi
#3 Jax vs. #7 Mig
#4 Max vs. #9 Gandalf
Overall #1 Sputnik is up for a real challenge against Sochi. Sochi is topical and Russian, look for the youth vote to give Sochi a strong showing.
Fivel came into the tournament as one of the strongest, but the Ovi juggernaut might role on thanks to caps fans. Though his end of the year showing with the Caps might hurt Ovi.
Jax and Mig seem evenly matched. Two strong short names.
Gandalf has a real shot to rocket into the final four, despite an initial week showing. Can max survive?
kitty says thanks!

NEW KITTY NEEDS A NAME!!
This is new kitty. He needs a name! He's sick of being called "new kitty" . He is a ~5 year old Russian blue fully declawed that was found in february living on the streets of PG county almost starved and frozen to death. He's a fighter and a sweetheart.
Two Syllable Names: #1 Sputnik vs. #16 Smokey , #5 Sochi vs #12 Neptune
Russian Names: #2 Fivel vs. #15 Ivan, #6 Koshka vs #11 Ovi
Single Syllable Names: #3 Jax vs. #14 Frank #7 Mig vs #10 Mir
Grab Bag Names: #4 Max vs #13 Jaguar #8 Fitty vs. #9 Gandalf
Sputnik was the russian satellite, and matches the spunky personality of new kitty. Smokey is a good name to describe his grey fur. Sochi is topical and cute, Neptune is just idk. Fivel was also a russian street survivor so we like that. Ivan very russian. Koshka is the Russian name for cat or kitty. Ovi is the only 3 time MVP that the DC area will ever see and also a Russian. Jax is a play on the name the shelter gave him "jaguar" which in the NFL is called Jax. Frank is a reference to Frank sinatra's eyes looking like the ktity's eyes. Mig and Mir are the russian words for their fighter jet and space station. Max is a russian name and the name of my favorite singer. Jaguar is the dumb name the shelter gave him. Fitty is a reference to fifty shades of grey, and being a street hustler like the real Fitty. And gandalf the grey is obvious enough.
