season is over.

after playing ball the contestants make there way to the draw wall. Felling sore from the ride before. no one knows whats in store. Justin took quite the fall, carson gets his horse out of her stall. they check in with the doc. and he suggests they stretch and go for a walk. as kevin rolls in, no one knows where hes been Gene is having a really great year, as he celeabrates with yet another beer wes made the top five, hes starting to feel the vibe. coch kelly, always clean and proper, was once quite the show stopper the team sits around the table for lunch, as the pep tlak goes out to the bunch tonight is the last of the season, as kevin pops a choclate reisen. some will move on, some will stay, its not the ride its livin for the day Rodeo is not about being the best, its about your lifes quest two hours before the show and just going with the flow wes and carson play with there ropes, as kevin looks for the saddle soap gene checks his cinch, as justin pulls some snuff and takes a pinch. kelly is busy shaking hands, as people start to fill the stands. grand entry rolls in and the energy is felt throughout the pen the anthem is played and the prayer is sent, who will make the rent the hosres are loaded and ready to go, with the intry of funny man joe grand entry has left and the cowboy is set, with the swing from the gate there off like a jet. Dreams are made and dreams will fade with every entry fee paid. gene gets set his eyes are cold and hes destined to have a buckle full of gold carson wrestles his steer and blows a knee, the crowd rises to see justin slides up on his rope and feels just right, for hell make the ride of his life tonight.... The show is over and the stock is fed we are thankfull noone is dead reality is set and buckles are handed out, for some this is what their life is about for some college rodeo has come to an end, but there is an open rodeo around the bend. sad but true this season is over, but not to worry, its just another beginning for mr.Slover.
