To celebrate his 25th post of My Town Monday, the creator Travis Erwin came up with a meme.
Here it is:
Hometown: (current) Edmonton, AB (North Americas largest northern most city)
Population: 752,412 (metro 1,081,300)
You should think of my town when: You eat at Boston Pizza (in the U.S.:Boston's, The Gourmet Pizza)
You should curse my town when: our Oilers bring home the Stanley Cup! (for the 6th time)
One thing you must see if you visit: Our giant cowboy boot! (or West Edmonton Mall) Actually Old Strathcona is a wonderful place to go for shopping and historic buildings.
One place to avoid if you visit: 97 Street downtown. (or West Edmonton Mall)
Famous Resident: so many to choose from! Nathan Fillion (Firefly & Serenity); Tommy Chong (Cheech & Chong); Rae Dawn Chong (Tommy's daughter - Commando and so many more);Evangeline Lilly (Lost); Michael J Fox ( a few movies ;), maybe a bit of telly)
Renowned Athlete: Again many, but I will leave it at Mark Messier.
Without my town the world would not have: Bioware Corp. Gamers will know what that is.
I live here because: It doesn't feel like a large city, but I get the anonymity I crave.
I would leave because: It is easier to be homeless in a warm place - kidding, but it will be the cold that eventually drives me out.

Have a good day all.
