Ultimate Sens Twitter Bracket Tournament: Round of 16

16 of the top tweets from Sens Twitter have been eliminated, but 16 still remain. Which do you think deserves to move on to the quarter finals?

Pittsburgh Penguins v Ottawa Senators - Game Three

On to the round of 16!

If you missed the previous article on Friday, what this series is doing is getting readers (and preferably active Twitter users) to vote on what the best tweets of “Sens Twitter” are. This bracket started out with 32, and after voting after the weekend, only 16 remain.

Here is how the bracket looks heading into the round of 16:

After all of the voting is done, here is how the next round shakes out!

Matchup 1: “Zibanejad/MacLean gif” vs. “Murray Glasses”

The Zibanejad/MacLean gif did extremely well in the first round, but it’s up against some tough competition with another elite gif. I honestly don’t even know which one I would vote for here.

Matchup 2: “Condra Hands” vs. “Imitating Mirtle”

Chet was one of the lower seeds, but that doesn’t mean he can’t go far in the bracket. His tweet easily beat “euh,” which may be a case of non-twitter users not totally being in on the recurring joke. Callum’s mocking of Mirtle beat out Capital Gains optimistic video because who likes optimism?

Matchup 3: “Politicians slandering Karlsson” vs. “Nailed it”

“Come on you pesky ____’s” from bRian5or6 suffered a huge upset, as he lost in devastating fashion by one vote to Sensfeld. He’ll be going up against another higher seed, as the voters liked Mark Stone’s quote tweet a lot. Should be an interesting matchup.

Matchup 4: “No Rings for Matthews” vs. “Drouin for Ceci Straight up”

Clearly Senators fans love tweets involving trashing the Leafs, as this wasn’t the only tweet like that. Facing off against Bonk is the more “sophisticated” joke about Cody Ceci, as “Caca Peepee” was defeated by Phil’s Drouin for Ceci recurring joke. Both great candidates.

Matchup 5: “Craziest 15 Minutes Ever” vs. “Pageauuuu”

This matchup is different because they are two completely different genres. The first gif isn’t Ottawa specific, but it’s an absolute classic. On the other hand, SensChirp’s Pageau tweet is always great to RT if Jean-Gabriel Pageau does anything noteworthy against the Montreal Canadiens. I’m curious to see what people prefer.

Matchup 6: “Lace em up” vs. “Phaneuf has More Goals”

I think “lace em up” has to be one of the favourites now. You don’t even have to be a twitter user to find it funny, plus everyone enjoys it when Adnan gets flak from people. Don’t sleep on James’ Phaneuf tweet though, because like I said: Sens fans love trashing the Leafs. So who knows.

Matchup 7: “Giant Head Dude” vs. “Take a Shot for Mark Stone”

Despite not everyone knowing about giant head dude, it did surprisingly well in the first round. Ed is up against Roman, who is the third tweet in the final 16 that is about the Leafs. Hmm...comically large heads or trashing the Leafs...tough one.

Matchup 8: “Daddy Phillips” vs. “Celine Dion”

Daddy Phillips won in a landslide over “Condon is no fluke,” but I guess that makes sense if some people voting aren’t active twitter users and they never see how often Arpon Basu’s tweet gets RT’d. Turris’ tweet of Capital Gains’ photoshop is still great though, and it goes up against Kevin Lee’s masterful (and well timed) Celine Dion celebration.
