The two semifinal matchups remind of the 2011 and 1996 Final Fours (men's basketball) - two heavyweights in one semifinal (Edison vs Brodeur), two surprises in the other semifinal (Bon Jovi vs Woodrow Wilson).
Honestly, I'd have to pick Edison over Marty. I'm much more appalled that Jon Bon Jovi, who frankly sucks and has always sucked (I was a teenager in the late 1980s; I know bad hair metal when I hear it), beat out Bruce Springsteen.
On a more positive note, you have to like how three
teams from the same conference Devils members made the tournament and that one of them won his region. (Additionally, another indirect Devils link, Brendan Byrne, won a game poll in his "region".)
It's too bad traffic circles and jughandles couldn't have made the tournament.
