No, amateur drinkers and local musicians, this isn't about your precious Blue Ribbon swill. The Professional Bull Riders organization, who consider themselves "the toughest sport on dirt," pit man against beast in a challenge to see who can last the longest atop a snorting, angry bovine. The goal? A mere eight seconds—but when you've only got one hand strapped to a massive bucking animal and nothing but chaps to protect your ass, that can seem like eternity. Head over to the Honda Center to catch this good ol' fashioned, possibly gory American pass time—but, we'll tell you, this isn't your average rodeo.
