#109 - Go to a rodeo! Yeehaw!

Last night I attended my very first rodeo!  The Star of TX Fair and Rodeo lasts about three weeks, so there's plenty to see and do.  My friend Charles (who's a regular dance partner of mine at Dallas & GCS) was able to obtain 2 free tickets from a friend.  He knew I'd never been to a rodeo before so off we went!  We headed out there around 8pm, it was freezing out last night too so we were all bundled up.  We missed the Mutton Bustin (where the kids ride the sheep) but we caught some bareback riding, team roping, the calf scramble, saddle bronc riding, tie down roping, barrel racing and of course bull riding!  The rodeo clowns were hilarious, they were all wearing pink for The Race for the Cure ("tough enough to wear pink"), including bright pink stockings!  They even had it out with one of the 'playful' bulls.  It was all very entertaining.  To cap off the evening there was a concert featuring Gretchen Wilson.  I really liked her stuff and would totally go back again!  And yes, I did wear my belt buckle.  Not to mention I had my first corndog in probably 10 years as well!  -D
