The Animated GIF Bracket's Elite Eight: It's Getting Real

Mortified Michigan Punter. Rollerblading Raptors Mascot. Yankee Enthusiasts. Overconfident Jeremy Shockey. All the GIF legends are here. Today, we narrow down the Elite Eight to the Final Four. Vote, and help us determine the winners.

Deep breaths, everyone. We're here. We've reached the Elite Eight of the Animated Sports GIF Tournament, and by the end of the day Wednesday, we will have determined all the Final Four participants.

For the first time, we'll be voting on the entire field in one day. We have three 1-seeds, three 2-seeds, a 4-seed, and, incredibly, a 10-seed. And today, you and I will cast our votes and decide which will move on in the tournament.

Voting for each poll will be live shortly. Check back here, or, if you'd rather, check me at @jon_bois, where I'll be tweeting out links.

Oh God, I'm so nervous. Before we begin, let's check in with SB Nation's New York studios, where Matt Ufford and Dan Rubenstein break down some of the top contenders in this tournament:
