We’re happy to announce the first ever BS Neighborhood Derby. Fresh off of the University of Louisville’s domination of the Big East Championship, we’re introducing a little March competition of our own. Beginning tomorrow afternoon, you, the Broken Sidewalk readers, will have a chance to vote for your favorite neighborhoods in an all-out battle for the BS Trophy.
So, no one actually wins anything here, but a whole lot of neighborhood pride is on the line. Spread the word and get your neighborhood to vote early on each contest. We’re expecting some of the competition to be fierce and even hope for a few upsets. You can vote for any neighborhood you prefer and can vote in every battle between two neighborhoods/neighborhood groups.
We semi-arbitrarily seeded the neighborhoods per the above bracket. There are far too many great neighborhoods in Louisville to cover them all, so we chose sixteen neighborhoods or geographically related neighborhood groups for the competition. The winner of each round will be determined by live poll and we expect to have two polls per day, each running two days to make sure everyone has a chance to vote.
Starting tomorrow, the two #1 seeds, the Highlands and Downtown, will battle the suburban town centers (Anchorage, J-Town, and Norton Commons) and SoBro/Limerick respectively. Spread the word: the BS Neighborhood Derby starts tomorrow (Tuesday).
