A couple weeks ago we asked Wyoming fans to tell us about their love for the Cowboys. There were several great entries but one stood out: WYO1016.
We asked him a couple questions to get a better feel for his love of the Cowboys.
What was one memory that stands out as being a member of Western Thunder? Is there anything special the band would do before or after games?
WYO1016: Being part of the marching band was the best decision I made going into college. My memories from my time in the band were some of my best ever. Before the games we would always march over to tailgate park and play a round of Ragtime Cowboy Joe and the Fight Song, then head over to the stadium to prep for the game. During marchovers each section had certain acts they would do to break up the monotony. They're kind of hard to describe, but if you ever see the band marching pay attention, it's pretty entertaining.
He mentioned sousaphone and it reminded me of this video.
How long did each of your tattoos take? Would you consider any additional Wyoming ink in the future?
WYO1016: The one on my left arm (Steamboat & fire) I got my freshman year of college. I had to drive down to Cheyenne to get it done, as there were no tattoo shops in Laramie at the time (that I knew of). I had to go down a couple of times to get it finished. I'm pretty pale, and the artist said that he was having problems seeing where the red ink was going towards the end of the first sitting. The first sitting on that one was about an hour, maybe a little over. When I got it finished it was around another hour or so. It's down around my bicep, so I've got lots of room above it. I'm thinking of some sort of Wyoming based shoulder cap to go up the rest of the arm, but I haven't figured out what exactly I'd like to put in there yet. Probably some sort of mural including the bluffs around my town, Devil's Tower, a jackalope, the Tetons, some geysers, and War Memorial Stadium, of course!
What are some of your favorite elements of game day in Laramie? What are your MUST DO's for people taking in their first Pokes game at War Memorial?
What's not to love about gameday in Laramie? The new Summit View lot is a huge upgrade from the old dirt lots of a few years ago. My friends and I have gotten pretty good at tailgating since we've had a decent place to set up.
1. The words to Ragtime Cowboy Joe and In Heaven There Is No Beer
Here are some pictures of his Brown and Gold custom Chuck's and his custom beer pong table.
