Unless you’ve actually been, there aren’t any words to properly describe what it is to experience the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo.  There’s the music, almost any country music star you can imagine; the livestock – cows, chickens, horses, pigs, and so many more; the showroom with all the Texas lifestyle arts and crafts; and then of course the food!   The bar-b-que is amazing!  There’s no other way to describe it.  Totally serious here.  Everyone I know who goes to the rodeo always agrees that the Cook Off is the one thing you have to experience at RodeoHouston.  Outside of that, my favorite part of el rodeo  is the bull riding.

Maybe it’s because we grew up around animals all of my life and we used to go to La Plaza México to watch the jaripeos and dance afterwards to live conjuntos that I’m so partial to the whole Texas and cowboy lifestyle, but there is just something about it that feels like home for me.  So when I was asked if I wanted to give away three pairs of tickets to the Professional Bull Riders Built Ford Tough Series (PBR) (BFTS) show at the Reliant Stadium in a couple of weeks, my immediate response was absolutely!  I know you guys would enjoy attending this event, and on top of that this is the first time the best bull riders in the world are coming to compete at RodeoHouston.  Y’all know we can’t stop there, though… LOL!  Each ticket also includes a general admission ticket for the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo World’s Championship Bar-B-Que Contest.  Can you say yummo!?

So what exactly is the Professional Bull Riders Series

For the first time in history, fans in Houston will be able to watch the best bull riders in the world compete at RodeoHouston™ when the Professional Bull Riders Built Ford Tough Series visits Reliant Stadium at 2 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 25, 2012.   The BFTS features the best, highest-paid bull riders on the planet, including PBR World Champion Silvano Alves.

Fans will witness thrilling 8-second rides and jaw-dropping wrecks throughout the adrenaline-soaked performance as the Professional Bull Rider’s insanely brave cowboys risk it all against monstrous animal athletes that can weigh as much as 2,000 pounds.
