Americana. The rodeo.
I loved it and felt uncomfortable at the same time.
The food was awesome and the people were mostly great, but it felt about a hair-trigger away from a rally and I wasn’t certain if it was a MAGA or white power one – but nationalism, not patriotism was being instilled in all the branding.
For my taste, I could use more of the bull and bronco riding and less of the calve wrangling and wrestling. If you’re going to rope or wrestle an animal for sport, make it the adult version….see where the drive for bravado is then…..
With that said, the skill of the men, women, young ladies, and the 14-year old bull rider were super cool.
