The games commenced at a neck-breaking pace of back and forth and culminated with a title upset that only two bracket participants predicted. Fierce competition, a pizza party, and a pep rally made the experience a WIN for all employees, even though only one person took home the title of PING PONG MADNESS CHAMPION
