This "mid-week level" sports-themed puzzle with a definite local flavor should be as timeless as the entity it memorializes (somewhat misleading pictorial hint to the right). After completing the puzzle (spoiler), listen to this and this, and read this explanation of 43-Across and for several other traditions referenced herein. You may also be inspired to try this related puzzle.
