A Tribute To The Expos

Remember the Montreal Expos?

Neither do we.

But luckily for you (if you care) some one does. And luckily for you again (if you still care) that same person knows how to write/produce rap music and edit videos. Thus producing this gem of a video to commemorate all both of those awesome Montreal Expos teams. Then again, what do you expect from a team named after the Expo 67 World’s Fair?

That’s like naming your team after a circus, a wedding, or Comic Con.

So it’s no surprise to know that the mighty mighty Expos only won their division once* in their 35 years of existence. That year was in 1981. The Expos went on to lose in the NLCS against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

* – In 1994, the Expos were in first when the strike ended the season short. So that would have been two, but technically it wasn’t a full season. Ah man, so sorry… PSYCHE! Sucks for ya, Canada!

So let’s give it up for 33 years of mediocrity! Yay!

In 2004, the Montreal Expos moved from Montreal to become the Washington Nationals. Does anyone else see the irony in this? One of two Canadian Major League Baseball teams moves from the country of Canada to not only relocate within the confines of our beloved and very beautiful nation of America, but they are relocated to our nation’s capital and are practically renamed Uncle Sam’s Team (aka: the Nationals). Take that Canada. You may have hockey, maple trees, health care, igloos, and teenage male pop singers, but we literally have everything else, especially baseball.

However, I would like to apologize. We do rip on Canada a lot on this website. We only mean it out of love. Seriously. Because without you, Canada, we wouldn’t look as good as we do. So in a sense, thank you for being you.

So as a thank you to Canada producing lousy baseball, here is a video to commemorate lousy baseball.
