[Ed note: Okay, I'll admit it, I screwed up. Our fabulous photo intern Mike Perrault took the time to check out the PBR Go Daddy Invitation Rodeoat the Rose Garden on Saturday Oct. 3, to watch the top 40 bull riders in the world do their thing. And he delivered back some pretty amazing man-vs-bull shots. And then, I promptly forgot to publish his findings. So, here they are.]
Mike Perrault says: "Behind hundreds of feet of steel rails lurks a 2,000 pound bull. He waits anxiously for his turn to eviscerate, catapult or otherwise maim his rider. How could I not want to watch this? Billed as the worlds toughest sport, I was skeptical, but after watching more than 20 riders attempt an eight second ride only to be thrown, kicked or gored; I'm convinced."
