This is it, folks. The Final Deathmatch is here. To reach the final round AIG defeated #32 Target, #17 Peanut Corporation of America, #9 Walmart, and #5 Ticketmaster. Comcast had an equally impressive showing, waltzing past formidable opponents such as #30 DirecTV, #14 Capital One, #11 GM, and finally, last year’s returning champion #2 Bank of America (Countrywide, Merrill Lynch) went down in an upset last night.
Comcast is in the final deathmatch for the second year in a row after losing to Countrywide in 2008. Will this be the year that the cable giant finally takes home the top honor? Or will WCIA newcomer and top seeded company AIG continue its total domination?
Whose name will we engrave on this year’s lucky golden poo trophy?
