Welcome to Round 2 of the Animated GIF Bracket. The original field of 64 entrants has been whittled down to 32, and by the end of this week, we'll have 16.
Competition has been stiff. Here, for example, are a couple of GIFs that were eliminated in Round 1:
Sigh. Tell me about it, guys. Tell me about it. I thought you were both contenders. And as for you, the voters: I know you voted against Tracy McGrady in order to make some sort of high-concept joke about how he can never get past the first round. I SEE YOU. I KNOW WHAT YOU DID. Voting shenanigans are encouraged in this tournament, however, so ultimately, I must applaud your effort. You monsters.
Let's move on to Round 2, beginning with the West Region. We'll be voting on these throughout the day. When each poll is live, I'll add links below. Or, if you prefer, you can check me on @jon_bois, where I'll be tweeting out links.
