To Bring You The Constant Variety of Bums
One out of every seven people in this country trace their family histories back through Brooklyn. The Boys of Summer are no different. Gone but hardly forgotten, the old Trolley Dodgers are still quite alive and well. Despite being scarred and broken, Dem Bums remain dear in the hearts of Brooklyn's citizenry, whom still wear their caps, t-shirts, jerseys, and jackets like a red badge of courage. Here in Kings County you might say New York City is still home to three teams. However, our municipal politico presently and historically have always demonstrated little or no interest in recognizing, preserving, or promoting Gotham's near 180 year baseball legacy - much less Brooklyn Dodgers history. Therefore, I make it my business to seek out and reveal FINGERPRINTS OF DEM BUMS wherever they may be. This is the third installment in a series of reboots and original content featuring people, places, and things you may already be familiar with, and hopefully things you're not so familiar with.
