The first day of the Animated Sports GIF Bracket was one of mortified punters, bored fans, strife and sorrow, and at the end of the day Monday, some pretty clear winners had emerged. Voting is still open on those guys, by the way. If you missed them, you can vote on them here.
On Day 2 of the tournament, we shift our gaze to the South Region. Throughout the day, I'll be adding links to the bracket below that you can follow to view GIFs and vote on the winners. If you'd prefer to follow along via Twitter, I'll also be tweeting the links via @jon_bois.
Just one word before we proceed: if Rollerblading Raptors Mascot doesn't advance past this first round, I'm going to be very angry with you.
