So, there were whales in Lake Michigan in the 19teens?

Where'd they come up with this moniker??

It was the Chicago Wales, not whales.  Chicago was the nation's corduroy capital at the end of the 19th century.

Hah. Go figure.

 

I'll bet their mascot, Niall the narwhal, spoke with a Welsh accent.

And he not only didn't, but couldn't wear pants,

and he had a Louisville Slugger for a nose 'tusk'--55GPHTZSUODIWKIF7QTN7G6NO6I52D74.150.jpe

Yeah, I mean, for what it's worth, I wan't going to feel really good about myself if at least ONE of you didn't call me out on that wholly made-up "corduroy capital of the world" thing that I pulled out of my butt.
