The results are in from the first half of yesterday's GIF bracket voting. In the Bobby Clarke Region ...

HOWEVER, there was CONTROVERSY which must be addressed.

As has been pointed out by a member of the GIF Bracket Committee, LIKE A FLOWERINA was actually born during the 2008 Eastern Conference Finals between the Flyers and the Penguins, not the 2012 Eastern Conference Quarterfinals. Arguments have been heard and we have determined a course of action.

Given new evidence, LIKE A FLOWERINA is hereby DISQUALIFIED from the GIF Bracket.

We apologize for any shame this has brought upon this institution, and to rectify the situation, the losing GIF with the most number of votes has been pushed through to the next round. SWING AND A MISS will thus act as a No. 4 seed for the rest of the tournament. That leaves us with the following second-round matchups:

  • (1) LAVY FIST-PUMP vs. (7) LILJA ON MALKIN
  • (2) MALKIN IS NOT LOVIN IT vs. (8) CAN'T HEAR YOU
  • (3) LETANG ROBBED vs. (4) SWING AND A MISS

Second-round voting will begin tomorrow. First, however, we must finish out voting in Round 1. On to the Bernie Parent Region. We originally said voting would end today at 3 p.m., but we're pushing things back a bit. Voting will close at Midnight tonight.

  • (1) GIROUX SMASH vs. (12) CROSBY GLOVE --- VOTE NOW
  • (2) PENGUIN ON PENGUIN CRIME vs. (11) PUSSY -- VOTE NOW
  • (3) ANGRY CLAUDE vs. (10) THE COATESY BOUNCE -- VOTE NOW
  • (4) LAVY USES A BAD WORD vs. (9) WILTING FLOWER -- VOTE NOW
  • (5) SHHHH REDUX vs. (8) ADAMS ATTACK -- VOTE NOW
  • (6) BRYZ POOPS PUCKS vs. (7) HIGH FIVE -- VOTE NOW
