Bismarck, North Dakota
NEWSFLASH – OTTO VONS are all the RAGE
In a surprise decision today, United Baseball Association’s Bismarck Otto Vons are moving across the state to become the Fargo Rage. General Manager Freddy ‘Da Cap’ Rock, stated that fan support is down and the City of Fargo made not only a stadium offer but a huge tax savings for the move. The new Fargo Rage will be playing in a brand new facility named Out’Rage’ous Stadium.
Bismarck Mayor Heinrich Von Battleship called the move outlandish and is planning on suing the organization for signing a 10 year deal and leaving after five. Mr. Rock was quoted as saying to this, ‘Sink the Bismarck’ the North Dakota fans have been nothing but trouble with their beer drinking antics.
It will be interesting to see how the team does in Fargo, the city was originally named “Centralia,” but was later renamed “Fargo” after Northern Pacific Railway director and Wells Fargo Express Company founder William Fargo (1818–1881). The area started to flourish after the arrival of the Northern Pacific Railroad and the city became known as the “Gateway to the West.”
One thing is for sure, OutRageous Stadium is going to be the envy of the league.
