Cinco de Banana: Let the Competition Begin

Between the Blackhawks playoffs, Derby weekend and our current Fantasy Sales contest, the spirit of competition is at an all-time high in the office right now.

Trash is being talked. Trifecas are being won. And the Trade Desk has enlisted the entire company’s help to reach IT pros from Chicago’s top companies.

If you are a Chicago company with used IT gear to buy or sell, we’re looking to help you squeeze as much value from your data center gear as possible. Tour the Exchange to learn more how the process works or hit us up at

Thus far, results of all contests have been impressive. Chicago is 2-0 in its playoff series against the Minnesota Wild (after putting the hurt on the St. Louis Blues - sorry Julius). Team Kurt scored the Top Banana award for the most sales activity last week (accompanied by Rich’s impressive trash-talking skill on the message boards). As we kick off this Day of the Battle of Puebla and the week to follow, we expect things will only get spicier. Please pass the habanero salsa!
