Yee Haw?

23.11.07

I couldn't help but wonder what the hell was going on today at noon on Front Street. I took an early lunch and was taking the opportunity for a nice bracing walk in the sunny, crisp winter weather. A crowd of folks in cardboard cowboy hats lined the streets. There was a lot of back slapping and one, I am not lying to you, "Yee Haw!" piercing the air. Suddenly a bad blues cover band started warbling "Sweet Home Chicago". And then I saw it. A free Calgary Stampede style pancake breakfast right in front of the CBC broadcast centre. I guess this is Grey Cup weekend. Boy, am I ever out of my element.

    I'm always shocked when I go to Dallas and hear folks actually "Yee-Haw". It always makes me smile.

  3. Oh that would make me feel out of my element too! Had to sit next to a couple wearing cowboy hats on the plane this weekend -- it gave me such a creepy feeling!

  4. There was a guy wearing a black cowboy hat sitting next to me and FI-ance when we went to the Funny Bone before my birthday. It is an interesting sensation to be near someone with such tastes.
