Challenge of Champions Bullriders Visit Hermiston Saturday

Some years ago, when I was working for a radio station in Detroit, we did a stunt during the big bullriding event there. All week on the air, I was bragging about how I could easily ride a bull and that it was no big deal. This was the set-up to the stunt, because I would NEVER really ride a bull...I'll leave that to the much tougher real cowboys! So the night of the event, I was center ring and introduced by the rodeo announcer. I was wearing a bright yellow shirt. An unusually bright yellow shirt, so it would stand out. Then came time for my bragging to be backed up by actually riding a bull. I climbed the gate and cowboys helped me onto the massive, 2000 lb. beast. It was exhilarating!
