GIF Tournament III: The Elite Eight, where half of your dreams come true

Our field of 32 animated sports GIFs has been narrowed down to eight. Vote, and help us determine which GIFs are great or awful or goofy enough to advance to the Final Four.

Happy Monday, friend. Over the weekend, you and I cast our votes and reduced the Sweet 16 of GIF TOURNAMENT III to the Elite Eight, and a couple of notable events came to pass. Firstly, the top overall seed of the tournament, ZLATAN IBRAHIMOVIC, fell to BARRY ZITO.

Secondly, we have managed to shed ourselves of all NFL GIFs. We have four baseball GIFs, two college football GIFs, and two NBA GIFs. Concordantly, perhaps, we have one GIF of a player doing something great, two GIFs of miserable failure, and five that are just plum goofy. It's possible that the NFL is just not silly enough for this tournament.

Today, I ask you to slack off at your job for yet another day and cast your votes in the Elite Eight round. Polls will remain open until 11 p.m. Eastern. We'll vote on the Final Four Tuesday, and hold the championship Wednesday. I'll be updating this page throughout the morning with links that will let you view/vote on the GIFs in question. If you'd prefer, you can follow me at @jon_bois, where I'll be tweeting out links as they go live.

Enjoy!
