  1. 3 years ago I took my Irish cousins to a small town rodeo in Cranbrook BC. We had seats right on the rails. Their expectations were not high, until a bull rider got sent 6 feet into the air by a 6 billion ton bull made of bone, muscle and irritation.

    The cowboy, an American Indian up from one of the southern states as I recall, landed like the professional athlete he was, with a roll and a leap for the rails. The bull was 6 feet from us sending clods of dirt all everywhere.

    The understanding of the Irish cousins was changed in the blink of an eye.

  2. that rider wasn't the only athlete out there
