Author Topic: Where have all the Cowboys gone?  (Read 962 times)

This may be an OT Topic ...but then again may be appropriate given the state of the economy, harness racing or just life in general.

I see cowboys everyday:
-  on the corner with a sign that says "Will work for food"
-  on the backside with a NW of whatever bathing a "Champion"
-  an unemployed auto worker trying to re-invent themselves

Have you seen a Cowboy lately?

-  Looking at you as if you know the game, the next race,
   or what tomorrow will bring
-  Folks that see promise in saddle pads, numbers, drivers and silly horse names

  I think your definition of a cowboy is off.  In fact, I think comparing life's losers to a real cowboy is downright insulting.   Cowboys don't cry.. they pick themselves up, dust themselves off, and get back on.

No chance. As they say in Detroit, Kid Rock is a "wigger."

  Funny you mention Kid Rock.  Caught his performance on the CMA Awards show the other night.  (rerun?)  Anyway, he starts up and I'm getting ready to switch the channel, but I start watching.  Drew me in.  Pretty good, the way he got that mix of country/rock/rap?! in there.
  I could possibly start to like him.

   Oh!  but no he's not a cowboy.  Go to any Rodeo and sit by the bucking chutes.  You'll see some real cowboys.

Kid Rock is alright .. he thinks he's a Cowboy anyway ... what is a "wigger"??  Does the ACLU protect people that wear wigs   Huh

Grinder in Colorado (I'm jealous).  I can't afford the cowboy I have !! LOL!

I meant no disrepect to "Real" cowboys; I was referring to the slang use of the word.
3 : one having qualities (as recklessness, aggressiveness, or independence) popularly associated with cowboys ...

  which I guess would mean their stunt doubles are real cowboys.  Lot of oldtime actors were the real deal.  Slim Pickens was a rodeo bullfighter in his younger day.

Well I guess citing actors taking fake punches that miss them by a mile and comparing them to cowboys is an insult.

  I actually posted that video because I love that song, and thought the video was cute.  You can keep harping on it if you wish.  Or.... you could go to a rodeo and check out some real cowboys.

My bad.  Mistakenly thought the thread topic was nit picking.  Didn't mean to threadnap it into harping.
