GIF TOURNAMENT III -- FIRST ROUND
(8) JOE MORGAN VS. (9) KENTUCKY FAN

JOE MORGAN.

Automatic bid. Finished first in Week 23 of THIS WEEK IN GIFs with 244 votes.

When I was 12 years old, my science teacher gave us an assignment: we were to tape our thumbs against the rest of our hands, so that we couldn't use them, and leave them like until we came in the next day. "I think you're going to find out how important opposable thumbs really are!" she said. Now, this might not have been the stupidest assignment of all time if I had ever remarked, "man, **** thumbs. These things are stupid," but I liked my thumbs a lot and thought they were great. Didn't really need to learn a 10-hour-long THUMBS ARE NEAT lesson.

Of course, I ripped off the tape on the way home, but the next morning I was treated to the pitiful sight of a couple kids who actually left the tape on, the ends frayed and soiled like an old Band-Aid. Middle-school grades do not matter at all, and I'd take a D for the year over the inability to use my hands for an entire day of my life. Those poor suckers, though.

They remind me of the Buccaneers here, who seem determined to tackle the Saints' Joe Morgan without using their arms. Look at No. 21, just sort of gunning right at him with his arms at his sides. Sick uniforms, though.

KENTUCKY FAN.

Via @bubbaprog. Special nomination. Finished second in Week 16 of THIS WEEK IN GIFs with 234 votes.

Four terrible things about being a Kentucky fan:

  1. Louisville is far better than your school at football, and is presently better than your school at basketball as well, which doesn't quite seem fair.
  2. You might live in Lexington or have to visit Lexington at some point.
  3. Almost nothing good happens in Kentucky football.
  4. If something good does happen in Kentucky football and you high-five someone about it, there is a 50 percent probability that Satan will grasp you by the ankles and pull you straight into the pit of Hell, never to be seen again.
