While some nitpickers might say that Bank of America technically owns a Golden Poo, having inherited it along with a mountain of toxic loans during its acquisition of Countrywide, we know for a fact that it would amuse us greatly if BofA CEO Brian Moynihan is secretly pining for a Poo he can call his own. He’s come close for the last two years, losing by a nose hair to BP in 2011, and then being upset in the finale of last year’s tournament by upstart rookie EA.
Armed with faulty foreclosures and 10-figure settlements, BofA has plowed through the competition once more. It slew Capital One with a flick of its wrist in the first round, then stuffed Chase down the night deposit slot, before shoplifting Walmart’s chance at the title.
After somehow skipping out on the semifinals in 2012 (we think they just blew off their appointment and took a nap in the truck), some WCIA wagerers predicted another early exit for Comcast, but the Kings of Kabletown have once again demonstrated their ability to rankle our readers.
The mat ran pink with blood during Comcast’s opening match against T-Mobile. DirecTV should have never come out of orbit for all the resistance it put up in the second round and Time Warner Cable’s failure to make a dent in Comcast’s exoskeleton.
So will you give Comcast the chance at reliving its former glory? Or will you hand Bank of America another opportunity to prove its mettle?
