The title of this post is, of course, a bit of a non sequitur, as the Vancouver Canadians and Spokane Indians know each other all too well. Having battled throughout the first half only to come up all even, the C’s were able to clinch the second half flag at home over their North Division […]

There are plenty of narratives to discuss regarding Sunday’s afternoon game pitting the arch rival Vancouver Canadians and Spokane Indians.  And I will get to them.  I promise.  Just a bit later.  For those new to my blog.  Read back a few posts.  You’ll soon realize I’m quite high on Sundays starter Matt Smoral.  So […]
