$9B Bet on NCAA Tournament

Last week, we presented you with a break from the frustration of your busted brackets, and put the power back in your hands.

Divided into athletes, moments, memes and player celebrations, we opened the voting up to our readers to determine why the average 2016 fan loves sports. And, in true March Madness fashion, there have been quite a few upsets.

A No. 1 was eliminated in the Round of 64 -- Crying Jordan of the Memes region, presenting us with the first opportunity to put the Crying Jordan on Crying Jordan himself.

In the Sweet 16, a championship favorite went down to a rival, as the 2004 Boston Red Sox fell to Derek Jeter's 3,000th hit in the Moments region. An 11 seed has slid into the Elite Eight, with Tom Brady's 2003 season knocking off Barry Bonds' record-setting 2001 campaign.

See the full bracket below, along with live voting through the end of Thursday.
