We will have a new champion this year. The question is…who will prove their obnoxious/overused worth here the most?

The Champion will be crowned at 345pm EDT on Friday.

Introducing first…your Real Housewives of Atlanta Bracket champion. The quote that slayed the defending champion Turn Up/Turn Down For What by a score of 17-11, it has certainly taken a step forward this season in obnoxiousness. What was once started as a hashtag, it has evolved into an acronym that even takes on such adjectives as “THOTties” and others I don’t feel like hurting your brains with.

Yes, I know it’s Valentine’s Day and lots of you will be receiving bouquets of roses and planning romantic dinners (not me- my husband knows I have no time for the gross commercialism that is Valentine’s Day and is under pain of divorce not to buy me flowers – and I mean it), however, it would seem that Valentine’s Day has always had a lot more to it than hearts and flowers. In fact, it originates from an ancient pagan ritual that was celebrated for years before anyone had heard of Valentine.

In Rome, many centuries ago, the festival of Lupercalia was celebrated from the 13th to the 15th of February. On the 14th of February, a day devoted to Juno, queen of the gods and patron of marriage, young women would place their names on slips of paper put into jars. The young men would pick out a name…
