In 1884, Edward Zamboni, a great Canadian military leader, invented the toboggan as a vehicle for the Canadian military. It proved triumphant in many battles until his opponents moved higher up the hill than his troops were located. It regained it’s popularity as a leisure activity in 1965 when our great Queen rode down the hill in Saskatchewan during her visit to our great country.
Today was another monumental day in tobogganing’s great history as the Edmonton tribe of November Project Yahoos, yahooed our way down an impressive hill, home to Edmonton’s own ski club. To the background music of the great Little Richard, who is 1/8th Canadian, we snow-burpeed, snow push-upped and snow lunged our way into this city’s history books. As is tradition, there was a loud cry of “Fuck Ya!”, a copious amount of hugging and a hard hat awarded to our hardest working/most kamikaze tribe member of the day, Kyle.
For those who like to sled, BOOM, we salute you.
