World's Toughest Rodeo
Looking at the current economy, with news of layoffs at major companies seeming to arrive daily, now might be a good time to try your hand at professional rodeo. Think about it: You get to travel around the country, spend time with animals, the money's not bad, and to be hella successful takes only eights seconds of work at a time. Of course, there are certain hazards, such as being trampled to death by a bull, but every workplace has its risks. You can learn more about the exciting opportunities available in the rodeo line of work with three nights of bucking and riding at Xcel Energy Center. The World's Toughest Rodeo's Toughest Cowboy competition pits twelve cowboys against each other in three events: bareback riding, bull riding, and saddle bronc riding, with the champion at the end of the tour winning a kickass ranch located in the Rocky Mountains in Wyoming. See? Rodeo can even provide you with housing.
