Where Are They Now: Sad Cowbell Girl

The most improbable thing to me about the whole Boise State Sad Cowbell Girl Saga was just how quickly "The Internet" forgot about her.  She was literally minutes away from being turned into the next Star Wars Kid when we all found out she was actually blind.  And somehow, The Internet did something it never does.  It put down it's weapons, quietly stepped back and exited the building.

Lost in that however was Cowbell Girl herself.  So many questions.  She knows, right?  How does she feel about it?  What's she up to?  Who is she?  Katy Moeller at the Idaho Statesman was the only person to do their due diligence and uncover the final pieces of the story.

  • Sad Cowbell Girl's name continues to be withheld, with good reason.
  • ↵
  • She was bummed about the news, it "definitely took some joy out of the trip."
  • ↵
  • She did, however, wear it well.  "All right, I can be sad cowbell girl for a night."
  • ↵
  • Finally, she turned down an appearance on The George Lopez Show, most likely the best decision anyone made in the entire ordeal.
