You know I have just about heard enough about all these tough football stars who are paid millions of dollars to wear lots of protection pads and bump into each other on the field for 15-seconds at a time? Why? Well, I will tell you why, because the real men ride the rodeo and 15-seconds, hell 8 seconds is a literal eternity on a 6,000 to 8,000 pound bull of pure muscle that wants you the hell off of there.
They do not get million dollar endorsements to go on Television to drink some colorful foo foo soft drink or airport outlawed sports drink. These guys are severely under paid and riding rodeo is 50 times as dangerous and you do not wear any pads to protect yourself as the bull tries to break every bone in your body and re-arrange your face.
For those who have never been to a pro-rodeo event you need to get your butts down there to see one? That is where the real action is in a life and death survival of man vs monster. There is no greater adrenaline rush than riding a bull when that gate opens and for those who dare to take the full ride there is often hell to pay, but in the end the pay offs rarely cover the lifetime medical costs of such a hazardous sport.
It is amazing that we Americans sit and watch our Televisions sets and think football is such a rough sport. Heck that is merely a bunch of humans running around and into each other wearing lots of padding protection. Rodeo, well lets just say that is where the real men play and they play for keeps. So, consider this in 2006.
