Remembering threads like Windsor, London, and Moncton inspired me to write this thread.
Minot ND has hit the nail on the head.
Minot ND has a Pro Basketball team. Makes ya wonder if a small Canadian city can support a CFL team. Of course comparing CFL football to CBA Basketball are like apples and oranges, but the eccomonics behind the teams are no different concidering Minot is in the middle of no where with a population of only 36000 people.
I live near the Manitoba US border and I just found out that Minot, North Dakota of all places has a Pro Basketball team that plays with major places like Pittsburgh and Indiana and others.
Vancouver BC is next to start their season as the Vancouver Dragans in 2007.
Some other cities Minot will be playing with in 2007 are Los Angelos, Atlanta, Miami, and Seattle.
Minot is a little hick city in the prairies with nothing around it. Brandon Manitoba is bigger than Minot.
But one thing that I see in Minot is the heart to have a pro team.
That kind of Heart for a pro team should be in all Canadians hoping to have a team in their city.
If Minot North Dakota can support a pro basket ball team with such a small population, then perhaps a some cities in Canada with larger populations might not be a bad place.
Some could argue that its also a stadium issue.
OK but lets keep in mind that Moncton is getting a stadium for its games and although it may be a little on the small side, fan support could rally some interests on bringing a team there and expand the stadium to a CFL level. Moncton could be the home for the Atlantic Schooners.
Thats right. Minot has inspired me.
