(1) Hello again. My name is MORTIFIED MICHIGAN PUNTER.

I last defeated ELATED NETS FAN in a rather one-sided contest, winning by 2,502 votes to 930. This match-up was a source of controversy, however, as many felt ELATED NETS FAN deserved better than a 16-seed.

Looking forward, it seems likely that I'll meet another GIF behemoth, HOCKEY MASSACRE, in the regional final. From valued commenter jhitts08:

And, honestly, I’m still not sure that Mortified Michigan Punter is my No. 1. Hockey Massacre just has so much going on. It’s going to be a battle to win this region.

This future match-up has me nervous, because everything has me nervous, because I am stuck in this looping GIF until the end of time. I shouldn't look past today's competition, however:

(9) Hi, my name is THE FALSEST START EVER.

I defeated ASHAMED BULLS FAN last week, 1,813 to 1,134. As is typical of 9-seeds, I am probably going to lose in this here second round, so I went ahead and skipped forward to the fourth round already. Cool? Is that cool?
