Me and L.Rees - my rodeo coach (thanks for the invite)
I honestly can't fathom how I've gone 24 years without seeing a rodeo. On the 4th of July I attended the Oakley Rodeo (the creme de la creme of UT rodeos). Thank you to the riders, the bull tossing, the annoying filler entertainment, the rodeo girls, the fringe, the leather, the Wranglers, the belt buckles, the hats, the Yeehaws, the boots, the free red handkerchief, and the realization that my back just wouldn't quite cut it to compete. It was all wonderful. I wouldn't normally agree with Kid Rock, BUT I will admit to having a new desire to wanna be a cowboy...or at least date one.
