SNS: aka what I like to do on a Saturday night

So last Saturday I had the wonderful priviledge of going to the RODEO. Yeehaa! Did i ever have a great time!? Megs and I put down the $13.00 and spent a fun night watching cowboys- and LOTS of them. Have I ever said I fantasized about Batman being a rodeo cowboy? Oh wait I have! I love watching them hang on for 8 seconds(or at least try) or wrestle some steer to the ground. Don't you?
Megs and I came away with a few things: 1) a new appreciation for chaps 2) Big Brown 'nuff said and 3) a few more inside jokes to last us until CNR.
We got to see my favorite act which as soon as I can upload the video from my phone I will post it. Basically, they turn out all the lights and riders dressed up in red, white and blue lights race around the arena doing all sorts of formations. I don't know why it's my favorite, but it is. I can never remember what they are called though...
I have one last little food for thought... mutton busting! Who in their right mind thought it would be a good idea to strap a 5 yr old to the back of a sheep and see how long s/he can hold on? Really?
