_MarkAllen Bob McDonnell’s silver lame-streamed leather chaps? No.
_MarkAllen Never seen PBR arena so tense, crowded, full of high-tech camera equipment, lights, lasers & fireworks. Where’s robotic Yul Brynner?
_MarkAllen Kasey Hayes = good ride. Nice tongue Dustin Elliot!
_MarkAllen This PBR press photo of J.B. Mauney vs. Kody Lostroh would make Warhol blush:
_MarkAllen Compare to (Vivienne Westwood’s Seditionaries/Tom of Finland t-shirt)
_MarkAllen Plus I like that photo because Kody Lostroh’s carb-face is obscured. Boooooo to carb-faced Lostroh! Booooo!!!!
_MarkAllen Down with Lostroh carb-face! Boooooooo! Long live ectomorphs!
_MarkAllen Cody McCord is a great rider, but he rarely makes the 8sec mark. I think he’s just too big?
_MarkAllen J.B. nailed it. Seconds 7 and 8 riding SIDEWAYS!!!
_MarkAllen Valdiron de Oliveira almost staged an Obama-like coup this year. Almost. Probably would have asked for proof of his birth certificate.
_MarkAllen The snazzy chaps, hats, spurs, face masks, klieg lights & beefcake make every locker room interview in PBR like a scene from CAN’T STOP THE MUSIC
_MarkAllen Cody Nance: pancake. And appropriately, followed by Mike Lee…a zombie at this point due to all his injuries this month.
_MarkAllen Lostroh’s ride was 90pt+ perfect!!! Boooooooooo carb-face!!!!!!
_MarkAllen I root for J.B. Mauney because he’s one of few PBR top 5 who doesn’t pray to his god after each ride, on camera (Christianobnoxious!)
_MarkAllen Okay…carb-face Lostroh is the official winner, technically. Mauney is a %1,000,000 more interesting rider, and a better one.
_MarkAllen Pete Farley is adorable. He looks like a cross between Andy Samberg, and the creature from BASKET CASE.
_MarkAllen McKennon Wimberly has really recovered since catching his boot spur and tumbling down the backstage stairs last year. SHOWGIRLS drama!
_MarkAllen Shane Proctor is JB Mauney’s brother-in-law?!?! Weird! Great rider, + I love how he puts fake front tooth in before post-ride interview
_MarkAllen Best “hat hair” of Pro Bull Riding ‘09? Caleb Sanderson vs. J.B. Mauney vs. Kasey Hayes. I’m rooting for Caleb in THAT department!
_MarkAllen JB Mauney nails the second title. Hear the arena roar for him louder than Lostroh? There’s a reason
_MarkAllen AAAAeeeeewwwwaaauuuggh!!! Lostroh off at 7.5 and NO SCORE on final ride!!!!! OUCH!!! (but you win, here’s your million dollars)
_MarkAllen JB Mauney’s a better rider because he wears a feather in his cap.
_MarkAllen The medical room backstage footage at the PBR arena: a patient laying on a table surrounded by doctors all wearing giant cowboy hats.
_MarkAllen Now a bull fighter in clown make-up has joined the cowboy hat-wearing doctors. It’s like a FAR SIDE cartoon.
_MarkAllen *sigh* Let the PBR ‘10 season begin!
