It's about to be time for the Sweet Sixteen and the Elite Eight and Final Four over in NCAA basketball land, so I started thinking that maybe other big prizes need that same time of buildup to the final prize. Like maybe the Newbery Award should have seeds and public elimination rounds and cool nicknames for different brackets.

And then I realized that we'd need our own TV network and slogans, too ("The Road to the Fictional Four!"), and it starts to get kinda expensive and unwieldy. So maybe we should just hire cheerleaders and marching bands? A little pizazz could be could, don'tcha think?
