Let's fast forward to real life now. In 2002, a rumor was found to be true. Calgary was about to lose their beloved Pacific Coast League Cannons to Albuquerque New Mexico. Albuquerque had just finished building a new Triple-A ballpark and was looking to attract a new tenant, and the Cannons weren't doing so well in attendance. There was indeed an uprising just like on "The Simpsons" to try to keep the Cannons in Alberta… but alas… Homer doesn't live in Canada.
