And the winner is ...
The time has come to crown a new champion in the Bracket of Awesome.
After five rounds of totally awesome matchups, it all came down to the No. 11 seed in the Totes Awesome Region, Vegas Trip, and the No. 2 seed in the Super Awesome Region, Tropical Vacation. (It's clear everyone voting has a little wanderlust this year.) A getaway to warmer climes took an early lead and never looked back, defeating a trip to Sin City by grabbing 67 percent of the vote.
Last year's winner, New Puppy (technically now just over a year old) is on hand to pass the torch to Tropical Vacation.
To all those who made the tough decisions along the way to put Tropical Vacation on top, why not reward yourself with a sunny getaway. You've earned it.
