  • It was a coin toss and the winner was from Portland, Maine. It was almost named Boston.

    (OK, I remembered that from school, because I grew up in Portland OR...)

    But I did cheat and go onto Google to be sure I was right, and saw that it was actually two out of three coin tosses that made the decision.
