The (aluminum) Festivus Pole
Of the three hauntings from Dickens' A Christmas Carol, I ruminated most over its Ghost of Christmas Past. Would Scrooge see his old self in a new light? Could he put the wisdom to good use? In that spirit of our past becoming a better future, I'm giving away cards of teams gone by. Brooklyn Dodgers! Seattle Pilots! St. Louis Browns! Les Expos!
That Browns logo is something else
HOW TO ENTER: Add a comment listing 3 favored MLB teams that no longer exist in their original city or under the current name. For example:
- 1: Seattle Pilots
- 2: Brooklyn Dodgers
- 3: Montreal Expos
This contest accepts entries through Monday, Dec 27th. I'll randomize them all and send cards from one (or more) of their teams to 5 lucky folks. Probably can't find them for super-old teams, but be creative! :-)
WHAT YOU WIN: Cards for one (or more) of the 3 former teams you listed! It's a Festivus Miracle.
