This has been one of the most unpredictable tourneys yet...and I'm loving it!

Diana Rigg and Shirley Jones making it to the Sweet 16 is a huge, albeit very pleasant, surprise. In my notes, setting up the brackets, I figured on the 1960s coming down to Natalie Wood versus Julie Christie.

I like this better, though, frankly.

Don't even come to the gig if you don't vote for Rigg, I always say
