Yes indeed, it's that time again when the tight wranglers come out of the closet and the wedding rings get put away. The Calgary Stampede starts today and with it, the raising of prices at all downtown restaurants and beating to death of Big & Rich's "Save a Horse, Ride a Cowboy".
It happens ever year and every year the work productivity drops like neck lines of all the 'cowboy cougars'.
The Stampede really is a thing to behold. for 10 days the city loses all it's inhibitions and just becomes one big ass college kegger. Even Carrot Top could get action this week.
Time for me to cut out of work early for a free BBQ and then downtown beer gardens [no good can come of this]
