Oh my God it’s our FIFTH ANNUAL BC Interruption GIF of the Year tournament! What a world we live in.
July is the worst month of the college sports year, because there’s... well, no college sports at all. At Boston College we’re fortunate enough to have the Comm Ave Charity Classic this Friday, but other than that, these are truly the dog days of summer.
Fortunately, that means it’s time for the UNDISPUTED BEST SERIES ON THE INTERWEBS! Can you even control your excitement? I sure can’t.
Let’s check in on the reigning GIF of the Year champion from 2016:
It was an All-BC Football final last year, with the BC Defense taking down the BC Defense for the title. No Option was certainly worthy of claiming the championship, but it wasn’t quite good enough to take down 2012’s* The Goal as the Best GIF of All Time.
*There was no tournament held in 2012. Johnny Gaudreau’s goal was declared the winner by acclamation and has won the vote for Best of the Best every year since.
Is there a better contender this year? Well, that’s where you all come in, baby birds. As always, we’re seeking your help to fill the tournament field with GIF nominations. We’ll need at least 16 for our tournament, so it’s up to you to identify your favorite plays, moments, and GIFs from the year that was in Boston College.
We have four simple rules:
1) The GIF must have something to do with Boston College. It does not necessarily have to be athletics related, and the connection to BC can be fairly loose. Former Eagles in the pros are eligible. BC coaches are eligible. BC professors are eligible. Anything related to BC is eligible.
2) The GIF must be from the past academic year (2016-2017).
3) With the evolution of The Internet and there being more (and sometimes better) formats to store moving pictures than there used to be, entries don't have to be in .GIF format. In order to qualify, any entry must (a) loop and (b) have no audio. Besides that, format doesn’t really matter.
AND THAT’S IT.
Nominations will be accepted until the tournament kicks off a week from today on Monday, July 17th. If you have any nominations that do not meet rule #3 (such as a Vine or a Twitter video), but can be converted so that they do, I'll do the conversion for you because I’m a nice guy.
COULD YOU POSSIBLY BE ANY MORE EXCITED FOR ANYTHING ELSE IN THE WORLD THAN YOU ARE RIGHT NOW?? I don’t think so! Get stoked, kids! And get us those nominations!
