Worst Company In America Sweet 16: Best Buy Vs. EA

The opening bout of this year’s Sweet 16 should result in some sparks, as the video game company everyone seems to hate (but whose games people keep buying) squares off against the electronics retailer most of us would rather not shop at (but still do when we don’t have time to wait for an Amazon order).

Each of these contenders won their respective first-round fracases in decisive fashion, though Best Buy’s nearly 72% margin of victory over Target was the largest yet in this year’s tournament.

However, the fight between EA and Sony did manage to bring out a slightly larger group of voters than the Best Buy/Target battle. So perhaps those few extra EA-haters will be enough to push the rookie into the Elite 8.

Only time will tell. While you vote, we’ll be in the back of the store playing Madden NFL on a 72″ LED display model.

(Voting on this poll will close at 11:59 p.m. ET on Thursday, March 22.)
