GIF TOURNAMENT II -- FIRST ROUND

(6) NASTIA LIUKIN'S SPOTTER/DAD vs.

(6) Hi. I am NASTIA LIUKIN'S SPOTTER/DAD.

Automatic bid. Won Week 9 of THIS WEEK IN GIFs with 235 votes.

Think of me as a more athletic, less profound ROLLERBLADING RAPTORS MASCOT. It should certainly be noted that Liukin's spotter is also her father, and in this GIF he fails in both of these departments.

His body language translates to the English language as, "welp." In some dialects, this may be translated as, "whelp," "wwwwwwwwelp," or, "welpers." The sentiment remains the same regardless.

Man, check out that leg at the end. The resemblance to the Raptor's tail is almost uncanny.

(11) Hi, you guys. Thank you for your time. I'm so happy to be in this tournament. So, so excited. Really just a big fan of what y'all are doin' here, what with the animations and all the folks fallin' and jumpin' around and carryin' on! Whew! Talk about a truly sporting spectacular! Jiminy criminy! OK, well, my name is REPORTER RUN O--
