Earlier this month the PBR (Professional Bull Riders) held their world finals in Las Vegas. It is a two week bull riding extravaganza with seven  competitions spread over two weekends. Vegas turns into cowboy city and the Mandalay Bay Casino and Hotel hosts the first weekend of competition and two weeks of vendors areas (interestingly enough in the same place they put the Photoshop World vendors).

We were lucky to be there for the last weekend of competition for the Toughest Sport On Dirt.  The last weekend is held in the Thomas and Mack center at UNLV. Besides the bull riding there is a vendors area that has everything from Ford Trucks (one of the sponsors of PBR – Build Ford Tough series) to livestock trailers to furniture and jewelry. On Saturday morning there was a “Meet and Greet” autograph session for 2 hours with all of the bull riders. These guys were great talking with their fans, signing autographs and posing for photos – all for free. You certainly don’t see that in any other pro-sports!

Thank you PBR for a wonderful experience, we are looking forward to next years bull riding and will be at a few more events than just the finals.

Congratulations to all the bull riders for a fine and exciting year.
