ginepri_robby_blog2.jpgThe “King of the Hardwood” competition moves to its Southeast bracket, pitting the likes of hot jocks from a handful of sports big and small against one another as the voting continues.

Now that the NCAA men’s basketball tournament takes a break for a few days, you’ve got plenty of time to catch up with “Hardwood,” review photos of the contestants and lodge your vote for each of the eight match-ups in this latest round.

The Southeast Regional includes Brad Ausmus-Adam Van Koeverden (bottom photo), Casper Landerweerd-Linus Thornbald, Carlos Bocanegra-Mike Vrabel, Matt Cooper-Adam Scott, Markus Rogan-Sidney Crosby, Luke Jericho-Luke O’Donnell, Robby Ginepri (top photo)-Jeff Francoeur and Tom Brady-Xabi Alonso.koeverden_adam_blog.jpg

At least two of those names should be familiar – local hotties Ginepri, a pro tennis player, and Francoeur, the slugging right fielder for the Braves. Given how much Frenchy packed on the pounds in the off-season, though, I’ll vote for Ginepri.

Check out the brackets here to review the results from voting in the Midwest and East regionals. Voting in the West Regional begins on Thursday. That round includes Falcons quarterback Joey Harrington.
