If you choose to take this pledge with me, please remove your Cowboy hat and repeat the following:
I vow that for the next 10 days, my attire will consist of at least one, preferably all, of the following items:
I vow that I will begin most conversations with “Howdy” and end most conversations with either a “Yahoo” or a tip of my hat.
I vow that for the next 10 days, mini donuts are acceptable as their own food group.
I vow that free pancakes are the greatest breakfast around because not only are they delicious but they will absorb any left over alcohol from the night before.
I vow that it is perfectly acceptable to drink a beer with my free morning pancakes.
I vow that all deep-fried food on a stick is wonderfully delicious and worth the money and guilt.
I vow that hangovers and diets are all to be dealt with AFTER July 18th.
I vow to two-step and line-dance until the cows come home.
And most importantly, I vow that whatever happens at The Calgary Stampede… STAYS at the Calgary Stampede.
