I don't like all rodeo events, but I sure do love bull riding. I grew up around ranches and livestock. The image of that lone bull in a field staring back at me, still feels powerful. Watching a cowboy choose to try and ride one of these amazingly large, unpredictable and strong animals is thrilling.

I think the bulls that come to the Budweiser Events on New Year's Eve have an extra energy, almost like they can feel a new year coming. I swear it's some of the most exciting riding you can watch.

The New Year's Even Extreme Rodeo Challenge with bull riding, bull fighting and cute kids trying their hands at mutton bustin' returns for another exciting night at the Budweiser Events Center.

Tickets go on sale Friday, Oct. 28th at the Budweiser Events Center Box Office, online at BudweiserEventsCenter.com or by phone at 877.544.TIXX (8499).
