The website fivethirtyeight.com has been running this "Burrito Bracket" for the past few days. It's actually been alot of fun considering selection on methodologies and inputs. On Saturday, they got to the Western region (California is it's own region).
Not surprising that Denver, New Mexico and Arizona did well, but somewhat surprisingly, Seattle got a nod in as one of the 16 seeds from the west.
They chose Rancho Bravo as one of the burritos to put into the tournament. Now, they aren't saying it's one of the 16 Best in the West, but they selected it to represent the Northwest in this region (a less forgiven individual might call it a "token nod to the Northwest").
Thoughts? Was there a more worthy burrito? I couldn't really think of one that I'd put over Rancho Bravo's... Do we acknowledge our specific burrito weakness beyond our specific Mexican weakness? Did we steal a spot from a more deserving place in West Texas or even Portland?
