Unbeknownst to many (perhaps just me) Montreal used to have a basketball team called The Montreal Sasquatch, who used to play in the Premier Basketball League. The unfortunate keyword to take note of here is “used”, as in the team no longer exists. Their last game played was versus the Rochester Razorsharks from New York, where the Sasquatch players sadly lost and never saw the light of day to continue their career as Montreal’s basketball team.

While I have never had the energy or attention to follow any sport, these types of random facts just make my day. There’s a Wikipedia article on the Sasquatch in case one is curious to know more about this now-defunct basketball team.
