Storyline

Starting with a 16-team bracket inspired by Keith Olbermann's take on March Madness, I list 16 animated projects I've worked on and have them go head-to-head, one by one, through the lens of 8-bit video-games I grew up with in the 80's and early 90's. Famous commentators from 1951 all the way through 2013 make appearances to help the action along, through hockey, NFL, MLB, all the way to the final showdown with the two surviving teams. Part historical observance, part satire, part homage, part fan-fiction, "The 8-Bit Cup" is unlike anything else ever seen in the world in sports. Written by Paul Johnson
