The rodeo comes to town

by Dege Legg

Alright, people! Send in the Rodeo Clowns! It’s time to quit taking myspace pictures of yourself and “Cowboy Up!” Put away those fancy pinky rings and meterosexual hair products, because you ain’t going to need them at the rodeo. That’s right. Rodeo! You too much of crybaby to ride a two ton ornery bull, boy?! Well, then, you might want to sit this one out. It’s the 57th Annual Mid Winter Fair Rodeo at Blackham Coliseum and it is going to be off the proverbial chain. There will be bucking broncos, crazy rodeo clowns, real-life cowboys, bull riders, calf ropers, and all that other stuff that you’ve come to expect at the rodeo. This event is sanctioned by the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association, so that means you get genuine Pro Cowboys doing real cowboy stuff…and not posers tossing dirt on the legend of Tuff Hedeman. Come on out to the Blackham Coliseum the weekend of Jan. 15 – 18 and get a taste of the country. For more information, go to or call 482-5738.
