No bull, that was scary
We’re watching the Bull Riding show in the Grandstands. It’s always a fun event. Manly cowboys, wild-eyed bulls spinning around, the threat of danger at every turn.
Like just now. A bull rider just got thrown off. The bull stepped on the cowboy’s head and then planted a hoof on his back. The rider was motionless in the dirt for too long. I’m sure I wasn’t the only prayin’ person putting in a special request.
The paramedics came, the cowboy regained consciousness, he left the arena waving from a back-board, and the ambulance is still in the parking lot. I take that as a good sign. Something really freaky scary would involve skid marks and flashing lights.
My hat is off to you, riding cowboys. Thank you for risking permanent disability…and worse…for our entertainment.
