World Cup? Nah. Calgary Stampede!
While American and world media turned to Brazil, a whole lot of people had their eyes turned to the north – to Calgary, Canada. Over one million people paid for tickets to enjoy the event. We have a couple of major rodeos here in Vegas so it's nice to see just what attendance this even got.
And Canadian participants shone. One topped the bull riders, another won the calf roping, yet another finishes second in steer wrestling [who in their right mind would even consider doing this?], saddle bronc champ and a couple more.
