Black eye

I fought the steer and the steer won

First day of the Cowtown Rodeo didn't go so good for me. Not only did I fail to catch at roping, or last longer than 4 seconds steer riding, but I got stepped on during the chute dogging.

It was my own fault. The steer hesitated, and to get fast time, I pulled on him out of the chute, causing him to break into a run. I kept control, but instead of stopping past the white line, I tried to turn and dog even though I was out of control. I fell under him, and he stepped on my face.

Trust me, it will look a lot worse than this tomorrow.
