Toronto Blue Jay's father was Electric Circus dancer

Electric Circus has been making a bit of a comeback lately in Toronto, and it's unearthing some really great stories, one of which is about a very attractive dancing cowboy.

The identity of this dancing cowboy was recently revealed to be Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Dalton Pompey's father.

In an interview with Toronto Mike, CBC anchor Dwight Drummond spoke about the legendary dancing cowboy and Mike took it upon himself to tweet Pompey. Pompey tweeted back and the rest is history.

Here's video evidence of the elder Pompey on screen.
