Here's our last 1 vs 8 matchup for the first round of the tournament. This time we have perhaps the most iconic of all bears, the #1 Teddy Bear, which was created after an incident involving President Theodore Roosevelt and a wounded black bear that was so popular at the time it spanned the creation of teddy bears on two continents, unbeknownst to their respective creators due to a lack of cell phone reception (or something). Teddy Bears worldwide face off against the #8 Country Bears, the namesakes of the Country Bear Jamboree attractions at Disneyland and Disney World. The Country Bears are audio-animatronic country singers that have both entertained and terrified children around the world, and were given the misfortune of appearing in a live-action movie in 2002 which could be blamed for the continued destruction of our childhood memories by Hollywood making crappy live-action movies (The Smurfs, Alvin & the Chipmunks, Transformers, etc).
You going with the gold standard for plush toys or the lip-syncing half-bear, half-robots?
