2000 CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH

oh baby we've got ourselves a barnburner

2000 CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH SUDDEN DEATH OVERTIME (!)

Congratulations to O Brother, Where Art Thou? on winning the 2000 , defeating Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon *in overtime* by a score of 76-75

@derek I forgot how beloved O Brother is until people started talking about it this week. It really is a great movie

@derek looks like a strong chance that it takes the win.

@extinct @derek it is a fantastic movie, which makes this final really tough!

@Thomas @derek crouching tiger, to me, is highly entertaining, impressive, and extremely well done

but... idk, o brother just oozes charm like a tin of dapper dan left in the sun

@derek alternatively: would you rather have a ghost drifting by your side or a dapper dan man?

@Thomas @phillyis @hex it's the first time it's been decided by a single vote

@derek @phillyis @hex oh, damn! It’s showing 50/50 so I guess it’s clearer on your end

@Thomas @derek @phillyis @hex the original vote did tie 50/50. but derek ran a sudden death poll and it won by one vote

@radicalrobit @derek @phillyis @hex yeah, and I missed the vote… could have taken it to double OT

@Thomas @phillyis @hex nah I was just a dumbass who forgot 150 was an even number, it was a pure tir that needed a tiebreaker lmao

@derek @touk there’ll be a sudden death poll that I’m frantically refreshing for

@derek this mf better come with an asterisk in the record books

[GIF of George Clooney in O Brother going "Jesus! Can't I count on you people?"]

@derek one more vote than the regular tie! Amazing!

@alex there were only 33 votes votes in the tiebreaker ("only" lmao, that's a lot in five minutes); the tiebreaker basically just counts for a bonus vote, like penalty shots

@derek oh fuck me, I wish I'd been paying attention 30 minutes ago
