GIF TOURNAMENT II -- FIRST ROUND
ROLLERBLADING RAPTOR REGION
(4) STEPHAN FECK'S DIVE vs.
(13) NICK PUNTO'S SWING
(4) Sigh. Hello. I am STEPHAN FECK'S DIVE.
Automatic bid. Won Week 14 of THIS WEEK IN GIFs with 321 total votes.
The primary objective of a diver is to fall into the water. He certainly made sure of that, but he received terrible scores thanks to excessively nitpicky judges. Damn, I meant what if he ****ed up and, like, flew away instead? What would they score it then? Look, y'all wanted a dude falling in a pool and you got it.
(13) Hi, I'm NICK PUNTO'S SWING.
Special nomination. Finished third in Week 9 of THIS WEEK IN GIFs with 159 votes.
In the first-ever GIF Tournament, we decided that Jose Constanza's swing was the worst ever. That may still be true, but this is surely a close second.
Swinging at a pitchout is bad form. Check-swinging at a pitchout is really bad form. Check-swinging at a pitchout and stepping across the plate and into the other batter's box ... I'm pretty sure that means you can't take communion anymore.
