Bull Riding / Rodeo
Who is into Bull riding or the Rodeo. These folks are some true athletes.
If you were "X" years younger, would you try it? (with "X" being a variable determined by you).
COWBOY UP !!!
The big belt buckle that most of them wear could be compensating for something.

Bull riding is one of the toughest sports in the world. Those guys take a real beating!
After my near fatal parcheesi accident I don't participate in any sports at all.
Got bumped while not on a blue safety square, eh?

Back when I was a RUG RAT (about 7 or 8) someone decided it would be fun for me to ride a horse.
They sat me on the horse and it walked around. How cute!
About that time, another horse rider came by quite abit faster, and the horse I was on thought it was time to RACE!!
The horse took off, at full speed, with me yelling "STOP!! STOPPPP!!!!!"
I yanked on the reins, but it did no good.
The horse got tired of the payload on his back, and JETISONED ME, right into a BARB WIRE FENCE!!!!!!!!!!!!
I still have scars from that FIFTY YEARS LATER!!!!
So that was my horse riding career. I prefer the METAL HORSES, or Motorcycles, though I have gotten too ELDERLY to ride those these days!
When I was passing through Fallon, Nevada they had a rodeo in town every single cowboy and cowgirl was at the burger king talking about how they did at the rodeo, one young kid I guess 16 won the bull riding championship. Good for him.

I'm just glad that we don't have to deal with that rodeo stuff up here.
Back in my High School and early College days, I rode Bulls and Bareback bucking horse. I have since come to my senses and watch the young'uns go it.
It is a tough sport and no drug can be purchased the provides the kick of strapping yourself to 1500 pound sack of living, breathing dynamite!
