WEST REGION -- FINAL
(1) MORTIFIED MICHIGAN PUNTER
(2) HOCKEY MASSACRE
(1) You know who I am.
Earlier this week, I routed AARON DOBSON'S INSANE CATCH, 517 to 104. My value lies in my simplicity -- at less than one real-time second, I am one of the briefest GIFs of the entire tournament.
We all knew I would get this far, and we all expect me to reach the championship game. You will never find a more delightfully terrified facial expression in the entire world of sports, let alone the world of GIFs. Do the right thing.
(2) Hello, old friends. I am HOCKEY MASSACRE.
In the Sweet 16 round I defeated BORED EXTRA-INNINGS FAN, 402 to 139. Please know that I took no pleasure in doing so. In fact, I had grown rather fond of the little guy. But I did not ask to be great. I was simply born great, and as such, it is my duty to press on.
I am as sprawling as MORTIFIED MICHIGAN PUNTER is brief. Whether you vote for me figures to hinge upon whether you prefer an epic or a limerick. We are both visual poetry, to be sure. As the only hockey GIF remaining in the tournament, I humbly ask that you keep my people alive in this tournament. I know the decision will not be easy. And however it shakes out, I'd like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your votes throughout the last three weeks.
