Another week in the books for the GCM tourney!  It's been fun reliving all these moments and seeing them pop up, completely unrelated, in other places around the net.  All of these are moments that mean something to us as fans.  So let's see where we stand heading into week 3 of the second round.

Total Eclipse of the Cards
