*** And it came down to a coin toss to determine if it would be Boston, Oregon or Portland, Oregon. This proved fortunate because Boston became a much bigger city than Portland; had Boston been the name of the city, it wouldn't have overshadowed the Massachusetts original and instead we'd have two large cities named Portland; try imagining how confusing a Blazers vs. Celtics game would be.
