Interactive map of sports championships

Slate has posted an interactive map of major US sports championships over time.  Aside from the Yankees' impact on the map, what do you think of the patterns, colors and design?  Is this a good way to present spatio-temporal data?

Makes me appreciate Boston a bit more - love them 70's Celtics. But as in Beantown, they dont give the great suburban state of NJ any credits; the map is 'city' centric.
It does show that less some crazy, cold cheeseheads, winning is all about the density.
