With Opening Day Upon Us and March Madness in Full Swing, Climbing Tal’s Hill Wants to Discover The Champion of #AstrosTwitter

Inspired by the thought of Blake Permenter, the Climbing Tal’s Hill writing staff decided to create an Astros Twitter bracket to see who is on top in the Astros digital world. March Madness has got the whole country making brackets now, and we believe that Astros Twitter needs to crown a true champion before Opening Day in a little over a week.

When creating the field, there were many decisions to make. Which fans are the biggest Astros fans out there, who are the writers to include, and how to seed the bracket. In the end, we decided to randomly seed the bracket, and make it a large field of 64 people/websites. When we presented the idea to Twitter, the response was overwhelmingly in favor of presenting the bracket:

Here’s the field (IN RANDOM ORDER):

Brian McTaggart
