News from The Brogue

You might remember that last fall, I mentioned an unexplainable Yorkism just briefly.
I was reminded of it again today, when I received a photo and story about a family that produced several generations of Eagle Scouts. The release states they are from Troop 152, The Brogue.
I hear a lot of people say this. In fact, I would say that more people call it “the Brogue” than call it Brogue.
But I still have no idea why this is. Can anyone shed any light?
And, to thank them for being the source of a good blog question, here are the aforementioned three generations of Davis family Eagle Scouts, from left, Rob Davis (’78); Rob’s son Bobby Davis, who earned the Eagle award on May 23; Dr. Bob Davis (’49); Bobby’s grandfather; and Dr. Tom Davis (’52), Bobby’s uncle. For his Eagle project, Bobby widened and re-located a section of walking path in Spring Valley Park.

    My guess is that people in York just love certain articles (unlike their hatred of “to be” constructions). It’s the only explination for why a certain route stretching from Manchester Township all the way to Fairview Township is called “The Bull Road”.
