Fake Portland Steals Real Portland's Ballcap

Real Hat, Fake City
It's bad enough that some rogue New Englanders settled on the West Coast and named Portland, Oregon after its Maine counterpart. Now, it appears that the Left Coast impostor is stealing our East Coast baseball identity. The new FOX detective series "Backstrom"—set in the fake Portland—is using baseball hats with the Portland, Maine Sea Dogs logo (the AA affiliate of the Red Sox). Apparently, the producers requested a dozen or so Sea Dog caps a while back—but did not disclose their intended use. So, what's the moral of this story? Simple. Real cities have baseball franchises of their own. Case closed, Backstrom.
