April 3, 2018: National Championship

It was a good night for Villanova and Donte DiVincenzo. That meant it was a good night for The Other White Meat - Johnny Porkchop (Rochester, MN). He takes home the Big Dance booty.

Kevin Walsh (Gilbert, AZ) is the bridesmaid and Kurt "Eel" Carlson (aka Jack from Berthold) claims the bronze.
