Canadian Baseball Fans Are Pretty Awesome (Video)

jays fans in full hockey pads in arizona

You can take the boy out of Canada, but you can’t take Canada out of the boy.

Such is the lesson Fox Sports Arizona reporter Jody Jackson learned last night. During the interleague game between the Diamondbacks and Toronto Blue Jays at Chase Field, someone in the Fox Sports production room noticed four guys dressed up in full hockey pads sitting in the stands. So they sent Jackson up to see what their deal was and, wouldn’t you know it, they were Jays fans from the Great White North who happened to be members of the Phoenix Knights Junior A hockey team.

Check out the video, and enjoy the Saskatchewanian accents:

That’s some pretty good fan support for such a terrible team so late in the season. Can you imagine what Canadian baseball fans would be like if the Jays actually made the playoffs?

Man, I love Canadians.
