Quick! You’re living in another country, you don’t have much time, and you need a USA fix? After visiting this weekend, I have to say that for a distilled concentrate of America, you can’t go wrong with Montana in general. If time is short, visit Missoula, home of the University of Montana, on homecoming weekend.
If you live in Montana, you own a truck. If you own a truck, it’s in the Homecoming Parade.
And how best to prepare for the event? Why, by painting pianos and leaving them around downtown. Duh!
P.S.: In the battle of the bears, the University of Montana Grizzlies beat the Northern Colorado Bears 38-13 in front of a homecoming crowd of 25,000 maroon-clad fans. Okay, there may have been a few less-than-delighted Bears fans and one very lost Illini, but the Grizzlies owned the day.
