    OT—Wyoming gets flak over use of “Cowboys”.

    First Post Banner
    Check out this article. Seems the University of Wyoming is being criticized by faculty for using Cowboys in its new slogan. Said to be sexist and racist. Link below—

    I read the article. If I were the ad guys, I'd fight this. It's a heck of a campaign. They didn't link the video, but it made young people want to go to Wyoming. It was probably something like this, but better:
    Open with a wide shot of Wyoming University.
    NARRATOR: The world needs more Cowboys.
    Fade to the prairie, where a cowboy (who can be any f-ing color or gender they want) sits at the fire.
    Cut to the basketball court, where a Wyoming Cowboy scores a basket.
    NARRATOR: The world needs more Cowboys.
    Montage of college students doing cool stuff at the University of Wyoming. Some in-class, some out, different types of "cowboys."
    NARRATOR: Be a Wyoming Cowboy.
    Montage of attractive model students doing cool stuff.
    THE END
    ---
    As for being offended by the word "Cowboy," there are bigger battles to fight.

    I think they could have been more inventive, but it looks like a plot from Colorado to mess with Wyoming:-)

    Wait ... their mascot is called "Pistol Pete?" Isn't that the name of the OSU and NMSU mascots?

    Maybe because it's late and I have had a glass of wine .... but that's what jumped out at me from the article ...

    This has gotten too far afield from sports.
