  by SoSH U at work

And we’ve reached the end. While I have no doubt what the winner will be, I had no interest in ending the series by Executive Order, so we’ll vote it out. Actually, there is some question which version of the Coliseum will get the nod.

Choose One. If you opt for No. 2, then choose one of the ...

We started this exercise in the Bay Area, and we’re going to come full circle and end here with the American League’s franchise in Northern California.

  by SoSH U at work
