Pros In Montana - Meet the Great Falls Electrics Team

How much Great Falls sports history are you aware of?   Famous names are easy to recite in our town.  Dave Dickenson, Todd Foster, Josh Huestis and more have called our city home.  There have even been adopted famous names out there in sports history also, be it baseball, football or basketball.


Now Great Falls has that chance again with another professional sports team calling the Electric City home.  Have you checked out a game at Swarthout Fieldhouse at Great Falls High for the Great Falls Electric?

Big Sky Conference Mascots Ranked on How Easily I Could Beat Them in a Fight

I came up with a random thought the other day. "If I were to get in a fight with every mascot in the Big Sky Conference, how many of those fights could I win?" For clarification: I am fighting whatever animal/person the team's nickname is (Grizzlies, Bobcats, etc.) in a one-on-one setting. No outside weapons being used, just a classic mano e mano fight.

What I've learned is I have very little chance at winning most of these fights.
