It was a long and grueling battle. In the first quarter*, Peanut Butter managed to pull ahead with several key votes, but the initial lead was not to last. Over the next two quarters, Peanut and Peanut Butter traded the lead back and forth. Just when one would start to pull ahead, the other would regroup and reclaim the lead. At the end of the third quarter, though, Peanut Butter managed to pull ahead by two, a lead it maintained until the final. In the end, Peanut Butter won 40-38.
“It was a close game, and well-fought. I’m just glad to see Peanut Butter come out on top,” said one Peanut Butter fan.
