Edmonton is lame

Edmonton is the smallest, lamest town in Canada

I grew up in a small town in southern Minnesota where things don't really change often, so when the slightest thing comes along, I hear about it even though I live in the cosmopolitan metropolis of St. Paul these days. They changed the name of the gas station on Highway 5! They put in a stop light! Did you hear about the car accident? 

Still, even as inoccuous as those headlines may be, and as quaint a picture as it paints of my home town, there is no chance that they would have made a fuss about a sign going up in the city center. The Edmonton Oilers took a picture of the sign and made it their featured story on their home page. 

Edmonton, you are adorable. Let me know when you have your next bake sale!
