And if you want to see the actual graphics, and not just a sample and a shiatty Gizmodo paragraph, try looking over here.

I've seen much better infographics detailing sporting events. At the very least, they should have sized each series relative to how many games each team won. All in all pretty lame- not much different than looking at the actual playoff brackets.

So much detail left out.

Also, this. Kinda frustrating when Fark links to a blog post that links to the actual content. I know, I know... its just one more click. But, really, just link to the actual content.

This. Also, where are my 2005 NHL playoffs and 1994 MLB playoff brackets? They should put those in for the lulz. Also, if you're going to do the stupid ones with two-team postseasons, why not do NCAA postseasons? Do an NCAA bracket one - that would probably sell better than the pro ones.

Yeah, I was looking for the NCAA basketball tourneys. Those would've been sweeeeeet.

I like that I've gotten enough involved in the NBA this offseason that when someone says "six rings" I think "Michael Jordan" and wonder why they brought it up.

Di should sell posters of week 16 or 17 Power Ranking graphs, as abstract art.

Man, my bar was redecorated by "corporate," who chose all of these sports posters to put up all around the bar. Three Stars posters, three Mavericks posters, three Cowboys posters, FOUR Michael Jordan posters, FOUR "old school" Yankees posters. No Rangers & no chicks. Imma write a cranky bossy letter telling them to get some dames up in that bar or at least move Becks & Romo into my direct line of sight. Geez. I have to think of everything.

Everything since 1903, eh? Where are the Stanley Cups from before 1918? Granted it was a challenge trophy before 1927, but the Cup itself goes back to 1893.

Meh, I was wondering how they'd do the 1950 World Cup.
