Canadian Minor League Baseball Managers Brawl

Having never spent much time in either North Dakota or Canada, we’ve always been fairly content to just rely on stereotypes to tell us everything we need to know about them. In fact, North Dakota is, as far as we’re concerned, part of Canada anyway, so one stereotype should suffice.

O Canada!

In other words, everyone in those places is friendly, says things like “a-BOAT”  and “eh,” loves hockey, and is generally polite. These stereotypes are infallible and never wro– wait, what? A minor league manager slugs an opposing coach during a game? In Winnipeg? This we’ve gotta see.

The Rocket didn’t finish his filmed fuming without making a plug for his appearance on 60 Minutes. Clemens mentioned that the interview with Mike Wallace will be shown after Christmas.

Overall, Roger doesn’t take too kindly to the accusations, saying, “I’m almost numb to some of these suggestions that I would even use steroids.
