After weeks of deliberation, we've almost finished whittling the original Field of 64 to the Elite Eight. Cast your vote, and help us determine the greatest animated sports GIF of all time.
NORTH REGION -- SWEET 16
(3) THE YANKEES' INFIELD
(10) BRUCE BOWEN'S FLYING KICK
Before we get to the voting, here's some hard-hitting analysis of the Animated GIF Bracket from our own Matt Ufford and Dan Rubenstein:
(3) Oh, hello. I am THE YANKEES' INFIELD.
Last week, I absolutely destroyed JACK WILSON THROWS INVISIBLE BASEBALL in the voting, 282 to 54.
This baseball is having quite an adventure. If you wanted to accompany this with sound effects, all you'd really need is a rotted-out 2x4 and a gong.
(10) Hi, I am BRUCE BOWEN'S FLYING KICK.
Last week, I dealt a stunning 218-142 upset to SHUT UP, CHRIS ROCK, which many expected to go far in this tournament.
I am the only GIF with a double-digit seed remaining in the tournament. Look at me. I am old. I look like I was ripped from a muddy 250K web stream from 2003. You know, back when sites like ESPN had video. I've been slumming it since time immemorial on message boards, the original breeding grounds of the animated GIF. A vote for me is more than a vote for a kick to Wally Scxccdsjcdzcxcxzzcxzerbiak's face. It's a vote for the GIF days of old.
Which animated GIF is superior?
