    Any rodeo fans on here?

    Tonight was the fourth round and I'm happy to say I've been able to watch most of it. I'm about to watch the replay on ESPN Classic.

    I think it's been a pretty good rodeo so far and will only get better as the week goes on. There are a few local guys that my shop is covering, so that makes the event more interesting.

    OOH ME ME ME!!! Unfortunately, I don't live near a rodeo anymore...crazy Kentucky...but I've definitely been watching whenever I can, all while enduring endless taunting from my boss. ;D

    I was excited when two of the guys that I interviewed for the rodeo I covered in August last year made it to NFR.

    I actually know someone who is going to be there tomorrow. Lucky person.

    A girl I work with was watching it, so I started watching it. Then tonight, she didn't work and I still left it on. :D

    Wranglers. The end. :) I'd never date one because they gotta be completely nuts to get on the back of a 2,000-pound animal that wants to kill them...but that doesn't stop them from being hot.

    If I'm going to watch a guy in chaps gyrate around, he best be singing "Panama."

    It's good entertainment, and with the order of events no matter when you turn it on, you get a good mix of timed events and roughstock.

    My favorite moment from last year. Kid I covered at a PBR event had the ride of a lifetime.

    Rodeo's fine with me, but I'm very glad I don't have to report on it any more.

    I didn't mind covering rodeo ... made for some fantastic photos. The cowboys were usually good quotes, too.

    I covered rodeo at my first job, and absolutely fell in love with the sport. Most open athletes of any sport, by far the best fan base besides NASCAR and all around just good people. Love it. Wish I was covering the NFR again this year, and I'll definitely cover it next year.

    Still have a horseshoe I found at my second rodeo.
