Ultimate Sens Twitter Bracket Tournament: Quarter-Finals

The great 8 according to the readers. Help decide which tweets in Sens Twitter deserve to go to the semi-finals

And then there were eight.

After the first two rounds of the Sens Twitter Bracket, 24 of the best tweets have been eliminated, and we’re getting closer to seeing who wins. If you have no idea what I’m talking about, this is a bracket tournament in order to determine the best tweet in “Sens Twitter.” Votes for the round of 32 (first round) were counted on the weekend, and Monday to Wednesday was the round of 16.

Here is how the bracket looks in the quarter finals:

Now onto the matchups:

Matchup 1: “Murray glasses” vs. “Daddy Phillips”

“Murray glasses” narrowly defeated the Zibanejad/MacLean gif, and I have to say that both of them were worthy of moving on. The funny thing about this matchup is that although Kyle Turris tweeted “Daddy Phillips,” Capital Gains is the one who made that photoshop, so he is essentially facing off against himself. Which of his creations do you like better?

Who wins?

Murray glasses128
Daddy Phillips124

Matchup 2: “Imitating Mirtle” vs. “Take a shot for Stone”

Two friends become enemies for three days. What do Senators fans like more: taking shots at specific Maple Leafs media or taking shots at the Maple Leaf fans? Hell, Roman’s tweet also encompasses Leafs media too, so it’s hard to pick between these two. Intrigued to see what the votes look like for this matchup.

Who wins?

Imitating Mirtle89
Take a shot for Stone160

Matchup 3: “Nailed it” vs. “Lace em up”

Two teammates going against each other is a matchup that I like. I love Marc Methot’s chirp, but then again I like everything about Mark Stone, so it would be hard to vote against him. Either way, a classic tweet from a Sens (or former Sen) player will be bowing out.

Who wins?

Nailed it143
Lace em up151

Matchup 4: “No rings for Matthews” vs. “Pageauuuu”

Again, Bonk’s tweet is trashing the Maple Leafs, which is a good sign that it will go far in the bracket. However, SensChirp is making fun of the Canadiens, who have been the teams bigger rivals over the past four years. A tough choice indeed...

Who wins?

No rings for Matthews90

Make sure to vote! Polls close at 10:00pm EST on Sunday, and the results will be posted on my twitter (@ShackTS) and on the website on Monday morning.
