Name of the Year 2014 Final: Shamus Beaglehole vs. Chillie Poon
(There are few more hours left to vote in the Name of the Year final, which is live over at Deadspin.)
This is it. This is the showdown we've waited an entire year for (OK, more like five months). In one corner, we have Shamus Beaglehole: English footballer, #3 seed of the Sithole Regional, vanquisher of Curvaceous Bass and Dr. Loki Skylizard, and bearer of a last name that sounds like an old man's curmudgeonly insult. Make sure to say his name out loud, and preferably in as stereotypical a British accent as you can muster, before deciding on his fate.
The answer is up to the voters. It's been a pleasure sharing our love of names with you, and aside from a few snafus, we've enjoyed every bit of it. We'll be back one last time next week, when we will announce both your winner and our own High Committee champion. Until then:
Name of the Year Final: #3 Shamus Beaglehole vs. #10 Chillie Poon
