Absolutely heartbreaking. Calvin, is that really an appropriate thing to post? Why not leave your smart thinking to yourself?
I saw the episode and it was laughably bad. I couldn't understand how the two teams were even involved in the pitch and why more than one person even showed up? Besides the presenters (and the rapper, whatever the hell his name is), everyone else was there as "creative eye candy" there for the hello. That's it. And as you noted the campaigns lacked anything worthwhile. I watched from start to finish mainly because of two reasons: 1)further confirmation as to why advertising is a waste, and 2) further confirmation as to how much the competition fighting for these marketing dollars sucks. The best part: watching the winning team leader (!!!???) painfully go through his first pitch. That was awesomely painful... I couldn't turn away.

God speed, kick ass and take names, Rep.

A crying shame. If the changes you suggest were initiated, just think about how many entries these award programs might receive. Even with lower prices, it could potentially raise revenues for each body that throws an award show.

you nailed it, Rep. someone should build a match.com of sorts for businesses and firms that want to continue the vendor/client game verses building a true partnership together. enjoy your lunch...you've earned it.

excellent piece Dandy. I'm sending this to some friends and relatives.

Excellent. Another chink in armor of the powerhouses. Good for us, no?

Oh brother. You really sacked this guy's hopes of landing a gig. Not even a warning, Rep...just a 15 yard penalty for gross misconduct and [the] loss of ever working at Peppercom. (I couldn't help myself).

Nice. There is hope for both the Cubbies and Pirates, though. You'll recall it wasn't too long ago that my beloved Phillies were stealing headline news for being the first professional sports team to reach the coveted [sic] 10,000 loss achievement. Since then, though, things have been looking up. We even won a World Series and have a Phightin' chance to do it again this year. I'm sorry that the Mets are what they are...but I am glad they are in the NL East.

Yes, you'd expect a better name from a firm that is going to help its clients brand and communicate their values, products and services. And, that picture looks like a humanized Papa Smurf.

Maybe a half-dozen dogs. That would be enough to make me full (and sick).
Great; I was hungry for lunch. You ruined my favorite hour of the day! -lb

CPO Kasko, I bet you can't wait to catch the first episode of "Weiner & Spitzer" ...it is just a matter of time. Also, Teddy Ballgame and Rep will be happy to know that Slick Willy is supposedly being tapped to be executive producer and blow the sax for the show's band. I do hope that this will end the "yea, well Christie is fat" retorts I'm sick and tired of. lunchboy PS - I owe you a call back. I know, I know...
