Febearary Fever: Bad News Bears vs Conan O'Brien Bear

Today's matchup in Febearary Fever features a fictionalized team of foul-mouthed baseball youths (yutes?) vs a bear who gained notoriety on late night television for doing one thing very well.

The #3 Bad News Bears - the 70s versionled by Walter Matthau, not the dreadful remake with Billy Bob Thornton - were about as raunchy a group as could be dreamed up in the seventies. Their coach was a drunk, and this group of lovable losers included, in the immortal words of Tanner Boyle, "All we got on this team are a buncha [expletive-deleted], [racist word], [really racist], pansies, and a booger-eatin' moron!"

At #6 is the Conan O'Brien Bear. If you know the show, then you know what his real name is. The Bear was such an important piece of the show that Conan brought the bear over to TBS with him after his split with NBC, even though his former employer owned the rights to all his characters, including the Bear.

Don't forget about: Baloo vs Little Bear, Charmin vs Snuggle, Pedo vs Gummi, Fozzy vs Sexual Harassment Panda, Winnie vs Gentle Ben, or Staley vs Grizz. Polls will begin closing seven days after they opened, so get your votes in!
