The National Western Stock Show

Last night, a friend and I went to the Rodeo at the National Western Stock Show. We had really nice seats (thanks to Cletus from Nebraska) and had a great time watching the Bareback Ridin', Bull Fightin', Bull Ridin', Mutton Bustin' and Barrel Racin'. The highlights were the bull fighting (the bulls almost always won) and the Mutton Bustin'. This is where they plop little kids on the back of a sheep and they hang on for deer life. I shot a video for your entertainment.

Click here for more pictures from the event. Sorry about the picture blurriness, the high action and bad results from my camera made me realize I might need to upgrade.

I was wondering if you knew how the National Western misuses its part-time/tempoary employees? How would like to dirty, filthy work at minimum wages and be requires to work as many as 84 hours per week for no (repeat,NO) overtime? The NWSS takes in the money--but doesn't want to pay decent wages to those who make the Stock Show work.
