San Francisco Zoo names their newest monkey after Sergio Romo

The Giants now have a real-life rally monkey on their side.

When a baby Francois' langur monkey was born at the San Francisco Zoo during the NLDS, the monikers of several Giants players ranked highly among name submissions on the zoo’s Facebook and Twitter pages.

But as the postseason continued, one name emerged as "an overwhelming favorite." Maybe it was the clutch late-game performances, or maybe it was the constant photobombing. Either way, the monkey is now known as "Romo."
