Sure, Tuesday was a historic day in American history, but not as historic as it could have been.
That's because, I, Big Sydney, almost tossed my yellow flag into the ring to make a run for president.
I had the whole thing covered.
I wasn't invited to the Republican or Democratic conventions, so there was only one way I was going to get the nomination. I needed to find another affiliation to get me in.
I thought about the Green Party, but look at me, I don't exactly eat vegetables.
So, I turned to my favorite political faction ... The Tailgate Party.
Now I was off and running. I thought I might be a little different with my campaigning as I headed across the country. I wanted to do something that everyone would remember.
So I was going to ride horses and find long standards to wave the flag from. There was no place better to go for that than to Dargan's stable and patriotic store -- Gallop Polls -- to get the things I needed.
