9/365 - Encouragement

Only a short post today -- this photo comes from the Sisu Ski Fest, where I was a volunteer at an aid station today. One of the duties of an aid station is to encourage the skiers -- usually with bells and yells. One fellow wore this bell around his neck, so that everywhere he went, he was constantly encouraging everyone!

More Cowbell !!

Definitely !!

Can Never Have Enuff Cowbell !!!

"More cowbell" is an American pop culture catchphrase originally derived from an April 8, 2000, Saturday Night Live comedy sketch fictionalizing the recording of the song "(Don't Fear) The Reaper" by Blue Öyster Cult. The sketch featured guest host Christopher Walken as fictional music producer Bruce Dickinson (not to be confused with the Iron Maiden singer of the same name, or Jim Dickinson, an actual record producer of the same last name) and Will Ferrell, who wrote the sketch, as fictional cowbell player Gene Frenkle. In the television special Saturday Night Live: 101 Most Unforgettable Moments, this sketch is moment number five.
