Too funny: Saskatchewanians are eager to correct the record after an NBA announcer insisted Wednesday that their province is named for its abundance of sasquatches. The Fox Sports announcer made the comment while pointing out that Utah Jazz forward Trey Lyles is the first person from the province to play in the NBA. The announcer said, “That region’s known for being home to a lot of sasquatches. That’s what it’s named after.” To be clear, Saskatchewan is a Cree word for “swift flowing river.”
