Watermelon Shortage in Calgary Averted
A Safeway store near McMahon Stadium received a special shipment of watermelons Friday morning in anticipation of Saskatchewan fans who want to wear hollowed-out melons on their heads. Some stores in Calgary sold out of watermelons this week, so the grocery store chain had to place a special order, said Safeway spokeswoman Betty Kellsey. It's very unusual to have the giant watermelons in stock at this time of year, she added.
