It’s down to the last two contenders in the Weil Bankruptcy Blog Bracket and it has been quite a journey. Unlike the NCAA tournament, this final head-to-head matchup is between two top-seeded cases. 203 North LaSalle (bankruptcy’s most famous address) lurks in the minds of virtually all parties in interest in nearly every chapter 11 case, while Marathon should be credited (no pun intended) for giving rise to the framework for the modern bankruptcy regime. 203 North LaSalle came out strong, with Richard Blais-like dominance in the first rounds of the competition, while Marathon – like Top Chef competitor Mike Isabella – has refused to give up, putting up a strong performance in these last two rounds. This championship round, as they say, is for all the marbles. So remember to put an end to these mixed pop culture references and vote for your champion, the single greatest bankruptcy decision of all time. And remember, in the timeless words of Ricky Bobby, “If you’re not first, you’re last.”
Voting closes Monday 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time.
