Shamus Beaglehole Wins 2014 Name of the Year Contest

Congratulations to Shamus Beaglehole, an English soccer player who has won decisive victory in the 2014 Name of the Year contest. Shamus' victory was announced last week, but somehow we were covering other stuff at the time, which was a terrible oversight. See the Name of the Year site for information on runners-up such as Eve Gruntfest and Alkapone Cruz-Balles.
