So why Brooklyn? Well, it's a little bit of a non-sequitor and we like non sequiturs. Also, because baseball is about tradition and the passing of baseball lore from father to son and SFist's father grew up a fan of Dem Bums, going to games with his father at Ebbets Field. As a result, SFist spent much of their childhood hearing stories about the Duke, Pee Wee, and Preacher Roe (God, whatever happened to all those awesome baseball names?). It also reminds people that while a veritable cottage industry has grown up memorializing the Brooklyn Dodgers, the same doesn’t exist about the moving of the Giants from the Polo Grounds. The Dodgers and Peter O'Malley are still cursed to this day in Brooklyn for breaking everyone in one of the five boroughs' hearts. The name, then, is a constant reminder of the Dodgers Original Sin, their Scarlet A as it were. And finally, it's because it's the name of one of Posh & Beck's kids. Whatever that's worth.
So congratulations to all the winners and thanks to everyone who played. Oh, and Beat LA!
