SBNation has featured some real talents on these here blogs over the years, few more singular in their brilliant oddness than Jon Bois. From the Progressive Boink days to his videos highlighting the hilarious, absurd, and downright incredible moments in sports history, Bois certainly owns his own little corner of sports internet.
So, I felt great excitement and anticipation when he announced he was turning his focus on the Seattle Mariners. Like, the whole damn thing. Bois, a Kansas City Royals fan and therefore no stranger to bad baseball, teased it would be 3.5 hours long. Seems like that’s going to be accurate we are halfway through a six-part YouTube series featuring his signature ArcGIS/Google Maps-inspired graphics, bemused narration, synth music, and fixation on the bizarre.
The third episode came out yesterday featuring the most treasured of Mariners memories, the 1995 American League Divisional Series against the New York Yankees. Spoiler alert: it’s great! But anyways, this post is meant to both promote this series in case you’ve missed it and to see which episode is your favorite so far. Vote below and sound off in the comments. What things did Bois miss that you’d hoped to see? What are your hopes for the final three episodes as he gets closer to the modern era?
What is your favorite episode so far of "The History of the Seattle Mariners" on Dorktown?
