Coming Soon: The Ultimate SLP Bracket

Patch readers will determine the Park's most famous person.

Bracket season is upon us, and St. Louis Park Patch is in the spirit.

On Thursday, we'll unveil the "Ultimate St. Louis Park Bracket," which will feature a number of the Park's noteworthy residents from over the years. Your votes will determine who will advance and, eventually, be crowned St. Louis Park's most famous person. Plus, we'll be giving out a prize to one lucky Patch reader along the way (details coming on Thursday).

Before then, we need your help filling out the bracket. In the comments section below, tell us who you think should be included. If you want to suggest what seeds they should get as well, that's awesome!

For more of the "Ultimate St. Louis Park Bracket," be sure to head to our Facebook and Twitter pages for a little smack talk. And sign-up for our daily newsletter to stay up on all the results.
