Bingham Stein - December 15
The San Francisco Fog hosted the seventh annual Bingham Stein game between the San Francisco Fog Men’s Side and the Redding/Shasta Highlanders on Saturday, December 15, 2007.
The Bingham Stein is a symbol of the first meeting between the two teams, which took place a few weeks after September 11, 2001. Proposing that that match be played in honor of Mark Bingham, who lost his life aboard United flight 93, the Highlanders furnished a commemorative beer stein that each year goes home with the winner.
Though Redding was victorious in the first few contests, lately the Fog has been racking up its share of wins. This time, the Fog prevailed 27-18, retaining the Stein for the second year in a row.
