2002 - PRCA Rodeo and Chris LeDoux at the Puyallup Fair
    

What an entertaining evening it was at the PRCA Rodeo located at the Puyallup fair grounds. This is the ninth stop on the Wrangler ProRodeo Summer Tour and will be filmed by ESPN2 on Sunday for the rodeo finals. Opening night was fantastic not to mention world class. It was also as I understand it SOLD OUT! If you were there opening night I would expect to see you Sunday to cheer on your favorite cowboy and cowgirl as they compete in the final go around and the big money. But for now let's talk a bit about what happened on the first night of the PRCA rodeo. First it opened with a grand entry with some young women doing an excellent

display of horsemanship and carrying the American flag. Next it moved on to the bareback riding event. This is where things started getting interesting. The crowd was definitely into this action and let the cowboys know it with a thunderous ovation after each eight second
ride. Next the 2002 rodeo queens were announced and introduced. These young ladies were kind enough to pose for me outside of the rodeo arena. Next was the calf roping event. This event was not my wife's favorite event as she felt sorry for the calf's that had to be roped and tied. Then came a great skit with a clown and his dog. The next event was steer wrestling.

My favorite part of the rodeo has got to be the bull riding event. Tonight Puyallup was treated to the best bull riders in the world. All you have to do to win this event is to stay on top of a ravaging pissed off two thousand pound muscle that really wants to hurt you. That's

After the steer wrestling came the saddle bronc riding. This is one of my favorite events. The names they give these horses are threatening all on their own. There were a couple of broncs that didn't want to come out of the shoot like Snake Pit but when they did look out!

where Dwayne Hargo comes in, his job is to make sure that these bull riders don't get killed by these bulls. Last but not least Chris LeDoux started his concert following the completion of the rodeo. After the tempo of the rodeo Chris started off a bit slow but picked it up by the end.
