The PBR Is In OKC This Weekend

Austin Meier from Kinta, Oklahoma

I  think there was a big football game on last Sunday.  I don't know for sure I was too busy watching the PBR.  Check out this video on Versus.com of Austin Meier riding and staying on the bull RMEF Gunpowder & Lead.  It was a 90.25 ride and Meier finished in 2nd in the Portland, OR event.
This weekend the PBR is in OKC, baby!!!!
The official name of the event is "The Split by WinStar World Casino Invitational
Presented by Express Employment Professionals, Feb 11-13, 2011 - Oklahoma City, OK",  that's a mouth full. Go here for ticket information.
The Brazilians are dominating the PBR events right now, but Austin Meier is the one to watch.  He was second over all in the world for 2010 and so far he is second in the standings this year.   Go here  for a great article on PBRnow.com about this weekend's event and the Oklahoma bull riders on the circuit:
Cord McCoy, Tupelo, OK
Ryan McConnel, Coalgate, OK
LJ Jenkins, Porum, OK
and the Cherokee Kid, Ryan Dirteater, Hulbert, OK
Don't forget the bullfighters, Frank Newsom is from Pauls Valley or Paoli, OK depending on which article you are reading.  Check this article from PBRnow.com, Being Frank.
So if you can get out of your driveway this would be a fun event to see.  They play loud music so you can get up and dance and cheer loud.  It would be a great way to work out your frustrations with all this snow.
As for me and my house we are saving for a good riding horse for our kids so we will be watching it on tv, however we still get up and dance and cheer super loud.
Have a great day.

There are some lines attributed to Victor Hugo which read:

“She broke the bread into two fragments and gave them to her children, who ate with eagerness. ‘She hath kept none for herself,’ grumbled the sergeant.

“ ‘Because she is not hungry,’ said a soldier.

“ ‘No,’ said the sergeant, ‘because she is a mother.’ ”

Would love to go to the PBR this weekend, but probably won't get to.

Why haven't I seen you before?! THanks for stopping by!

I hadn't been to a rodeo in over 20 years let alone a PBR event. They seem like they are very exciting. From what I remember of rodeo everybody just put up the other stuff to see the bull riding anyway.
