Fed Ex against UPS

Fed Ex scores a lot of points for an elegantly crafted network but they are buried by the fact that UPS has facilities and transports everywhere....

Isn't this the obvious game, no matter who the rivals are?

Oh, I'm going to dark place on this one, personal involvement.

Game choice is obvious, because as a wise person once said, "...nuke the entire site from orbit. It’s the only way to be sure."

BTW, it is Giants vs dodgers, not the other way 'round.
