New, comments

This month, we're going to determine the greatest animated sports GIF of all time, and we're putting it to a vote. Can Rollerblading Raptors Mascot possibly lose this tournament? Well, it's up to you. But, we hope not.

Basketball is a waste of time. All you do is bounce it on the floor a bunch and then you throw it. Who cares? We are occupied with determining something far more important: the greatest animated sports GIF of all time.

And this time, you will help determine it. In the coming weeks, we'll be asking you to vote for your favorite GIFs. We begin with the West region, which is named as such for absolutely no reason at all.

When voting is live for the match-ups, we'll add links below. I'll also be tweeting links from @jon_bois, if you prefer to follow along that way. Stay tuned throughout the rest of the week as we hold super-important polls for the other regions in the tournament.

Enjoy, but do not take these decisions lightly.
