For the last few years I have been collecting bits and pieces of log rolling history. Photos, newsletters, I even have a folder full of old World Championships brackets from decades ago. For the longest time I have been planning on putting that content up here. Well, I finally got around to starting the process after dumping my old web host for one who could run file uploads properly.

After staring at the bracket for a while, I finally figured out what didn’t look right. I believe it to be a true double elimination, where losing one match does not confine one to a destiny of -at best – 3rd place. Can anyone from the era weigh in? Were they all like this? When did it change to the current format?
