Kate Upton, Bill Simmons Squaring Off in The Big Lead’s 2011 Culture Tournament

What do Kate Upton and Bill Simmons have in common? Well, nothing really, except for the fact that the readers of The Big Lead sports blog think they are culture-y.

The sports blog is running its annual Culture Tournament, and the finals have come down to the incredibly easy on the eyes Upton against Simmons, everyone's favorite sports guy.

What is the point of the tournament? That's a good question, actually.

The tournament bracket pits the biggest stories, people, events, etc. of the year against each other and readers vote on who is more relevant (or in some cases like this one, who's better looking as well), and the winners advance to the next round.

Simmons has his work cut out for him, though, as he already trails Upton by a considerable amount.

History is not on The Sport Guy's side, either. The 2009 and 2010 tournaments were "won" by Megan Fox and Brooklyn Decker, respectively.
