As the RedBlacks were sitting in the Winnipeg James Armstrong Richardson International airport early Friday morning, waiting for their flight to take them back to Ottawa, they got a shoutout from the Westjet gate attendant.

"We'd like to welcome a team from the National Badminton League this morning ... the Ottawa BlackReds."
