Atlanta United Dog Cup Semifinals Weekend

And there’s a twist!

IS THAT YAMIL ASAD’S MUSIC?!?!

Four dogs have advanced to the semifinals, but it’s not a Final Four because — SURPRISE! — we have a fifth contestant.

About an hour after the poll began, I was informed that I’d left a dog out, that of Yamil Asad. On one hand, I was embarrassed that I hadn’t included all eligible contestants. But on the other hand, at least I know I’m not the only one who has been stalking the players’ Instagrams for dog pics. Asad’s pup has been randomly added to one of the groups, which will be a three-way vote.

SEMIFINAL A

Yamil Asad

Let’s be honest, this is a first-round-bye dog anyway. Looks like a Boston Terrier French Bulldog with a really cool pattern. This is a good dog!

Tyrone Mears

Mears was a landslide winner over Jacob Peterson, which is strange considering they have very similar looking dogs. Maybe he’s a sleeper candidate.

Julian Gressel

Judging by the first round of voting, heavy favorite here. He won by nearly as much as Mears, despite being matched up against Chris McCann’s beauty in what was clearly the Group of Death of the first round.
