    Please indulge a proud grandpa. Here's my 10 year old grandson on his second ride.

    Very good. Still in good position and he is at least 2 jumps out.
    I'm glad PRCA, PBR and others have moved to the vests and helmets.
    30-40 years ago, you couldn't ride without a cowboy hat on (seriously). And, no one wore a vest for protection.

    A lot of good bull riders come out of Oklahoma. We used to head that way for bull buckouts and small rodeos many years ago. A bunch of us would travel together and we would brother-in-law the event. If any of us won or placed in the money, the money was split between all of us.

    Nicely done for anyone, let alone a kid.

    Oh yeah, they still have it. It is the headquarters for the Apache tribe. Down here in the south we have the Comanche and Kiowa tribes. I believe there are 26 tribes here in Oklahoma. A proud and wise race. Anyone that wants to pay attention to them can learn of many things the government is willing to do to get their way.

    OK, that is very awesome. :cheers:

    PETA can be food if they don't want to eat it. I'm cool either way.

    Sounds like good times. Kind of like in the movie J.W. Coop with Cliff Robertson. Shoot, I'm good with just about "any" movie from the '70's. That was my "good times" era. Love the big cars and big hair.

    This kid can't decide between bull riding, BMX or football, so he's doing all 3! Started bmx on a little 50cc when he was 6, has a room full of trophies for it. Made it to city champs runner-up twice in football, but lost both times. I get to teach him there's winners and losers, though. Good lessons for him. Give it all ya got, and have fun doing it.

    Know them all very well. Southwest Oklahoma is my lifelong stomping grounds. We like to keep quiet down here about the good living, but you might be surprised at some of the folks born down this way.
