Calgary Stampede Centennial 2012 Part 1
Happy 100th birthday, Calgary Stampede!!!! Yahoo!!!!! Too much fun, too much fun. My brain has had to recover from Stampede. Sorry for not posting sooner!
Our little household was aflutter preparing for the Stampede!!!! I’ve been looking forward to attending Stampede ever since I’ve met Jeff! One could say one of the draws to becoming a Canuck was the Stampede….I jest! We put on our best western wear + I asked Jeff multiple times, “How do I look? How do I look?”. I even whined, “You look cuter than I do!”. Yeah, I’ll admit it. I said it. Finally, we hopped onto a bus + then onto the C-train (This is the recommended route. Parking is notoriously horrific) to our much anticipated destination!!!!!!!!!!
My gods, man! Why so uptight!? Smile! I think Jeff was so excited he couldn’t really express himself like I did by jumping up + down + squealing. He had to contain his excitement in a masculine way = stoic.
I don’t know the variations within corn doggery, but this Stampede corn dog was GOOOOOD!!!!! Unfortunately while we were chowing down, we happened to witness an extremely overzealous Stampede goer get his head directed over a trash can for vomiting purposes by the Stampede police. Not appetizing at all. I wonder if there’s a Stampede jail like there’s a secret Disneyland jail?
Stampede had games, fried foods, rides, fried foods, stupendous people watching + fried foods.
And…..Rasta Banana!!!!! At least that’s what I called him. I don’t know why, but for some reason there were a lot of “Rasta” themed prizes at the Stampede. “Rasta Bananaaaaaaa!!!!!” I would randomly yell throughout the day. Jeff didn’t find it funny. Not one bit.
Our main goal on Saturday was to attend the chuckwagon races. But guess what?! It shall have to wait!!! There’s too much to post about the chuckwagons, so I will have to save it for another day!!!! My apologies! Until then, my friends!!!! Love you!
