Where is the sport...

In trying to stay on the back of a couple thousands of pounds of angry beef that doesn't want you on its back?

Then again, I have more respect for the guys who don't wear helmets but rather stay with the traditional cowboy hat.

Then again...

Maybe it's just their way of getting even with the rodeo cowboys for being treated like this:

It all looks very exciting but is definitely a spectator sport as far as I'm concerned.

Not my idea of fun!

What makes it even more "interesting" is that usually once the bull gets you off it's back (either after going the full time or not) it tends to turn on the irritant.

Them is some hefty chunks of potential hamburger there. Many still have pointy horns, too.

The cowboys have to hope the rodeo clown and the matadors are able to distract the bull long enough for them to scramble for safety.

I had a chance to be in the ring along with the "official" photographer. I elected to shoot through the fence as I'm not as nimble as I used to be and Marty (the official photog) had to scramble for the fence quite a few times himself.

:D
