The BCI Apple Tournament Round 1: (7) Gala v. (10) Empire

The apple never falls far from the tree

Seve Ballesteros

Yesterday in the second match of the first round of the BCI apple bracket, (5) Fuji took advantage of its de-facto first round bye and punted (12) Red Delicious into the sun like it was supposed to. Cool.

Today’s matchup is:

(7) Gala


(10) Empire

This is probably one on the better matchups of the first round, between two spectacular apples. Gala was voted around the lower middle of the pack, while Empire likely suffered from lack of name recognition and floundered around the bottom of the pack save for one idiot who voted it fourth.

Arthur. Arthur was that idiot.

That said, these are two quality apples, though with different flavors. Gala is more sweet whereas Empire is more tart. Both are fantastic apples for snacking, so you can’t go wrong.

This is probably the toughest matchup of the first round, which feeds into the (2) seed in the second round. The (2) seed will have its hands full in the second round taking on one of these two competitors.

As always, the poll is below. Let’s vote! Also, as always, if you are reading this on Google AMP or Apple News the poll won’t show up. So don’t do that.
