Yeehaa! I put SU and 1 in the rocking chairs in the back of the truck and headed off to the big city last night to see the Houston Fatstock Show and Rodeo. Had a great time, although I must admit to being very tired today.
The main event of course is the concert. Sugarland was the featured act and they did very well given the size and acoustics of Reliant Arena. I wasn’t impressed at all with the sound system, sounded like a bunch of tweeters and subwoofers hooked together. Girl singer has a great voice though.
Nothing quite like bull riding to get the juices flowing. The cowboys that take on a 2,000 lb. piece of twisting flesh have some big conjones, alright. They get tossed around like ragdolls up there.
Also enjoyed the barrel racing, calf wrestling and the mad scramble. And the food, thank goodness for Pepcid at my age. All in all, a fun night at a grand old tradition.
