Belated Celebratory Jubilation

The Sioux Falls Canaries are the 2008 champions of the American Association League/The World!!!! What's up meow, Saints fans? What, you couldn't get Daryl Strawberry paroled and into your line up? ooooh.

Let's relive the memories with a montage, shall we?

It's no secret how my hometown team won. Pitching and defense. We had both of those things. We took it one game at a time. Other teams just wanted to hit home runs. Not us. We did the little things. Hustle. That's something we did too is hustle. All the time we hustled. It's a grueling season, and it just came down to the Sioux Falls Canaries wanting the championship more.

And the players. Shoot, I could go on and on about all the great players we had. I mean, the first baseman, and the catcher. All the players, really. Steve...John...But I don't want to turn this post into an absolute love fest. Here's a more analytical break down of the 2008 season.

Also, the poll question on the Canaries' website is: "Which is a better name for Sioux falls?" The answers are either "Titletown" or "City of Champions." Not making this up. I voted for Titletown. While it may not be original, it is more succinct. But I guess the good people of Sioux Falls feel differently. 74% favor City of Champions. If the Saints ever win a championship, I'm sure Common will have the same poll on his webpage.

I had a dream that I went to a Saints game and saw Pat Mahomes pitching for the Canaries.

I think Sioux Falls has been known as the City of Champions ever since the Augustana Vikings baseball team won the NCC championship in 2003, Soup. Sorry I didnt send you that memo.
