The Professional Bull Riders 2013 at Madison Square Garden
It is not Dodge City, Kansas, Reno or Neveda. Nope, the Wild West came to the big city of New York. The Professional Bull Riders circuit aka PBR brought the rodeo to Madison Square Garden last weekend, transforming the arena in the middle of Midtown Manhattan into the wild west. The competition featured 40 of the world's top bull riders trying their best to hang on eight seconds to some of the meanest bulls ever bred. It's not old-school rodeo, the modern PBR circuit is fast-paced and designed for TV broadcast to the generation that grew up on NFL football and video games.
