Worst Company In America Elite 8: BP Vs. WellPoint

A WCIA tournament vet faces everyone’s least-favorite newcomer in today’s Elite 8 bloodbath.

Making its first appearance in these brackets, BP has many predicting that its oily residue will easily wash up onto the shores of the Final Four next week, especially after bringing Toyota’s chances at a Golden Poo to a sudden unexpected halt and cutting the cord on Time Warner Cable.

Meanwhile WellPoint (you probably know it as Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield) has been a near-constant in the WCIA game, making it easily the most-hated insurance company. In the early rounds it sent UnitedHealth to the ER (where it was denied coverage) and then issued an involuntary recall on Johnson & Johnson. But do these incompetent insurers have what it takes to defeat the BP slicksters?

Which company deserves a spot in the Final Four? You make the call!

This poll is now closed. Congrats to BP for making the Final Four!
