Last night night Annie and I went to the Houston Rodeo with our friends Jim and Elizabeth. The Rodeo is a 20 day event that features big concerts and over 2 million visitors each year. It is the largest rodeo in the world. We had a lot of fun, ate like crap, watched Five- year old kids ride sheep, ate like crap, watched Fergie shake it, had too many beers, and ate like crap again!
Here are some pictures of our excess to get you through the weekend:
This is where the Texan attempt to play football. It is one of the nicer NFL Stadiums and the Rodeo is held inside.
Here is the Astrodome, once known as the 8th wonder of the world. Now it is our red-headed stepchild of stadiums. Look how beautiful the sky is! It was a wonderful 75 degree South East Texas Day!
Annie and Elizabeth standing in front of a huge carnival - bad eats are here!
This is a Deep Fried Twinkie. I ate it and it was GLORIOUS!!!
Annie enjoyed the Deep Fried Twinkie too! I look on in disgust ...
This was like a 30 lb rabbit, really!
I ate this. It is a BBQ Turkey Leg. It was awesome. My eyes should tell the story as too why.
Now this video is of something called Mutton Bustin'. Five and Six year old kids are placed on the back of little sheep and whoever holds on the longest wins. It is one of the most hysterical things you will ever see. This is the second year we have watched this and the primary reason (aside from Fried Twinkies) that I go to the Rodeo. Enjoy:
It is now time to go train. A lot.
Hope everyone has a great weekend!
