Dudes of the 80s Tournament - Round 3: John Cusack (3) vs Michael J. Fox (5)

Previous results: 19-18. #1 seed Row Lowe had his hands full with Eddie Murphy, but had just enough support to squeeze by. Had the voting lasted a few hours more, this might've tipped the other way. Click here to view the updated full bracket.

Say what you must about the outcomes of some of the matchups (Lowe winning = racist? C'mon - he won by a single vote, and was a top seed!), but I think we ended up with some really potentially great ones in the final rounds. Today's battle of the underdogs (Fox has taken down Superman and John Depp - can he continue his run with Cusack?), an upcoming Maverick-Iceman game, a bad boy battle with Lowe and Downey, Jr. and a Red Dawn reunion with Sheen against the Swayze. Really looking forward to next week and beyond.

Surprisingly quiet...eerie, some might say.

Too tough to choose! Sigh. Finally went with Cusack.

I won't deny it was a tough choice, but I gotta go with our favourite native son. Cusack may have been in Say Anything and Stand By Me, but Michael J Fox was Marty McFly and Carlton Whitfield and a van surfing werewolf. Come on!
