(n. originates from the hairy, ape-like creature Sasquatch. AKA Sasquatchewan)
The announcer, Jeff Wade, made the comment after his network colleague mentioned during Tuesday night’s game between the Utah Jazz and the Dallas Mavericks that Saskatoon-born Jazz forward Trey Lyles is the first-ever NBA player from Saskatchewan.
“Wow, that’s an impressive NBA fact right there,” Wade said. “Of course, that region (is) known for being home to a lot of sasquatches.”
“Saskatchewan?” asked the other announcer in apparent bewilderment.
“Yes,” Wade replied. “That’s what it’s named after.”
Sasquatchewan is born!
SEEING IS BELIEVING OR IS IT HEARING?
THANKS TO JEFF WADE OF FOX SPORTS, SASKATCHEWAN, CANADA IS NOW FAMOUS FOR SASQUATCHES.
After doing more digging on the internet, we also found an IMDB reference to Sasquatchewan. Apparently on an episode of Fugget About it, there is a reference you can find here.
Although to date, there has not been many Sasquatch sightings in Saskatchewan, no one can prove that this mythical creature did not originate from the province that shares a similar name.
