What’s the best storyline in each region, and why isn’t it that "Butler Winthrop" sounds like a character on a BBC show about the aristocracy during World War I?

And which matchups hold the most intrigue and interest for you, the discerning viewer trying to figure out when to schedule fake meetings on your calendar so you can watch the tournament from your desk?
