This weekend I had a chance to make it out to the Bi-Mart Arena to enjoy a little bit of the Cheney Rodeo. I haven't been to many rodeos in my lifetime - in fact, this was the second rodeo I have ever attended.
I was in awe of the pageantry of the event. I also tip my hat to the riders in the various events, specifically the cowboys in the bareback and bull riding competitions. I've only ridden a mechanical bull and that was hard enough. I can't imagine the skill and intestinal fortitude it takes for someone to ride a bucking bronco - even if they only need to stay on for 8 seconds.
