The Animated GIF Bracket's Sweet 16: Say Your Goodbyes

Throughout the "Greatest Animated GIF Of All Time" Tournament, we've seen a few GIFs evolve into fan favorites. Well, here is our chance to send them packing. Vote, and help us determine the greatest GIF in history.

It is the way of things. As is the case in the NCAA Basketball Tournament, the Animated GIF Bracket deals a deck that's stacked against the double-digit seeds. Their ceiling is lower, and just as a forest fire cleanses woodlands of overgrowth, the bracket is cleansed of its lesser GIFs by its own design.

Say goodbye, BORED EXTRA-INNINGS FAN. You have done very well to make it all the way to the Sweet 16, but it ends here. You stand no chance against the likes of HOCKEY MASSACRE.

Or perhaps you do. Your continued participation in this tournament relies on the charity of these fine people, who will vote throughout the day Monday and determine which animated GIFs in the West and South regions will advance to the Elite Eight.

Stay tuned to this page, as I'll be updating it throughout the day with links that will allow you to view and vote on each GIF. If you'd prefer, you can, as always, follow me at @jon_bois, where I'll be tweeting out links throughout the day.

These are the first two regions of the Sweet 16. Voting on the last two will commence Tuesday.
