Raging Bull

Still in AZ teaching and had a bit of time so I decided to on a few diversions.  Friday night we rounded a bunch of folks together to head out to Cave Creek for the Friday night bull riding at the Buffalo Chip Saloon.  It was a trip.
A cowboy bar with music and dancing and outside more bars and food and a corral for the brave to hop on a bull.  of the instructors along for the ride were Richard Salley, Keith Lo Bue, Dan Essig, Karen Michel,  and Annie Lockhart...and...no none of us hopped on for a dance around the ring with the big beasts.  Here's Keith now...Howdy...
And here Richard is trying to explain the subtle nuances of Country music...Karen is not buying it...
Outside we gathered around and watched real cowboys get thrown around for 8 seconds or less.
And a little video for ya.
Front row seat and the smell of manure in the air...just another night at a bar in AZ.

bullriding is so insane~ I think the riders have something missing in their noggin to do such things ;)

yikes!! I pictured a mechanical bull, not the real deal - that place must have been wild :) I suppose living in Montana you see more cowboys than most of us, all we see around here are the urban type.
