I couldn't possibly feel like a Texan until I'd gotten a chance to go to a rodeo. Of course Fort Worth has one every Friday and Saturday night in the Cowtown Coliseum.
The rodeo features bull riding, barrel racing, roping, and mutton busting. The best part of the night was the rodeo clowns, although it isn't the same crew every time and some are better than others. It's a great place to take children. The mutton busting allows a whole crew of toddlers to go chasing after one poor sheep with a flag tied to its ear.
The pageantry and novelty of it made for a great, unusual night, although toward the end it did become too much of the same. I'm sure that, like with any sport, if you're into the details it would never become boring.
A second trip to the rodeo was not nearly as fun as the first. I started to notice how uncomfortable the seats were and how much dung actually smells.
