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

The results of the bracket prediction challenge are as follows:
🥇 Challonge user "do WHAT" (31 points)
🥈 @hex (30 points)
🥉 @MmeLibertine (23 points)

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

@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?

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

[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

@derek then again, if I had been, it would've just been another tie
