The Stories We Could Tell

Bozeman Rodeo – Yee haw!

Teri really hooked us up for the Bozeman Stampede…. not only did she get us VIP tickets to the finals of the rodeo, she also outfitted us in cowboy gear so we would look the part!

The rodeo is truly a slice of Americana. If you’ve seen Borat, you know what we are talking about. To kick off the festivities, they don’t just sing the National Anthem. Oh no, they take it one step further and fly the flag from a helicopter. Wow.

This rodeo had everything you could imagine: Bull riding (only one cowboy made it 8 seconds and took the whole purse); Bronc riding, Barrel racing; Calf wrestling; and Calf roping. They finish up the night with an amateur competition. Selected spectators get to run in the arena with a bull. First one to grab a flag off the bull (there was one attached to his tail, and one on his horns) wins. Fun family entertainment. Don’t worry though, the bull got his revenge. As soon as the fans turned to exit the ring, he charged at them to give them a good scare! Lesson learned: Never turn your back on a bull!
