The Santa Monica 1138ers were a JFL team based on Santa Monica. They were named after the year the planet was discovered. They spent many thousands of years toiling in mediocrity, but had a brief period of domination. This led many around the Galaxy to adopt them as their favorite team. A decision they would live to regret, as the franchise again descended into long periods of missing the playoffs and drafting small-handed quarterbacks.
Santa Monica is credited with popularizing the so-called Inner Rim Offense, in which a quarterback throws the ball forward to another player who catches it.
