Gimme a Beat!

So what is a buffalo stance? No one seems to know, not even the Phrase Finder. It always sounded a mite disreputable to me. But now it's apparently an acceptable headline:

in Bangkok:
Buffalo stance
With a fresh approach that's earned him acclaim in the field, Dr Charan Chantalakhana has made it his life's work to restore the place of the buffalo in Thai rural culture...

In basketball:
Buffalo Stance
...And now the Washington Wizards, in their first major player move under the guidance of director of basketball operations Michael Jordan, are hoping to trade Isaac Austin to the Utah Jazz in a three-cornered deal for Detroit Pistons center Bison Dele and a future first-round draft pick.

In Kansas:
Buffalo Stance
Cats look for turnaround against No. 18 Colorado

And in social commentary:
Buffalo Stance
...Matthew Testa's The Buffalo War looks at a different struggle, the fight over the fate of Montana's (and, to an extent, the nation's) free-ranging bison.

Finally: you know you've arrived when you're a search term here (along with "Blue Buffalo Dogfood" among others).

Like they say, lookin' good is a state of mind.
