    When I lived in Arizona, I had a co-worker who had a black belt and was kind of a bull rider rodeo wannabe. He tried to talk me into ridin one of those beasts. He knew this guy down by Chandler, who had some brahmas, and would charge people $20 a ride. I went down there with him and he went for two rides and did pretty well, he lived. He was maybe 140 lbs, but absolutely fearless. I witnessed him kick the shit out of some big nasty Chicanos. Always had enormous respect for rodeo Cowboys. They are in a class of their own, and if you happen to be in a bar with them during rodeo time, i would advise givin them some room.

    I grew up on a farm...not a ranch, but me and my cousin decided to try and ride the bull one day, no rope, no gloves, no pen, no helpers, no clowns.....just me, TJ, and the bull. TJ ended up with a broken arm, I ended up with a sore ass.....not from the bull, I was the oldest, and should have known better, that's what my granddad said anyway! :)

    I've has some experiences with rodeo "cowboys"....it ain't that they are all that tough, it's more that they ain't got good sense, and don't know when to quit! :)

    the adrenaline rush is extreme
    and somewhat addicting
    you guys are always talking about attention, go to Denver , Dallas , Ft Worth , Cheyenne any of those places
    go into the local rodeo hangouts and especially if you BUCKLE everybody wants to be your friend
    you never have to buy a drink , and you never have to sleep alone
    I seldom had to pay for rooms
    Walk into a bar after the evening show a little dirty , walk with a little limp
    the ladies eat it up
    you should try it
    it is a major KICK IN THE ASS
    I miss it still today

    Rodeo has changed since my day , these kids are a lot more professional , they make a lot more money
    they are more like athletes than cowboyd
    the good bull riders now are smaller ,
    when I was riding I was 6-3 and trained my weight down to about 180 pounds

    Did the sore ass have anything to do with a swinging board?

    yep
    one of my favorite shows was at Prescott
    By the time we paid expenses and entry we lost money if we won
    but it was a hell of a show
    I was traveling in those days and one year in Prescott 64 or 65 they used to rope off down town and have street dances I met this gal , prettiest woman I ever saw
    her name was Billie , her boy friend and she had just broken up , he had a band playing for the dance
    he was a DJ for a TV station working for a guy named Ray Odom he and Buck Owens owned the radio station
    anyway Billie intrduced to me to this guitar singing guy from Texas
    we got to be friends Billie got pissed off and quit seeing me
    Waylon started singing in a bar in Scottsdale called JDs
    we palled around for about 5 years then he got picked up by RCA
    Waylon Jennings one of the best guitar players and damn could he sing
    he sings even better than I do he said it was because I couldn't carry a tune in a bucket
    byt what pissed me off he had more talent but the worst part was he was better looking
    God I miss those days

    whiskey row is one of the most famous places in the world to the rodeo crowd
    I used to travel with a guy named Glen Howard about the meanest human being I ever knew
    he loved to fight and he was good at it
    one year downtown on Whiskey row things got a bit rowdy , old man owned this bar about midnight he was going to close the cowboys weren't
    going to let him some big old steer wrestler picked him up and set him on the bar next to the cash register and told him

    ,"you operate the register I won't let anybody hurt you"
    we were in that place till 5:00 the next morning till the cops came with tear gas to close it
    yep Whiskey row famous place
