Tarleton State in Stephenville, TX if you don't know anything about the area, well Stephenville is THE Cowboy Capital of the World! And let me just say it is not unusal to have 4-5 members of the Rodeo Team in your classes. If you are lucky enough one will be in your group meaning that most Thursday-Sunday's will be unavailable to work on group projects with you.
I was lucky enough to have this happen to me, the first day of my marketing class my very first semester back this tall, lanky, team roper sat right beside me (this was before I knew this class would include groups). We ended up in a group together, our first assignment was get to know your group so we had to create a power point together about fun facts about all of us along with pictures. This is when I finally understood that this kid wasn't just some team roper. He was good and I mean WAY good!

Last night my friend invited me to go with her to the rodeo to see The Band Perry (if you haven't seen them, stop what you are doing RIGHT now and go buy tickets for their show, they WILL NOT disappoint.), I wasn't sure if I would know anyone that was up, but there is always a few from Stephenville, the surrounding area, or went to Tarleton. As the team ropers rode past to head to the boxes, I saw an all too familiar face. It was Shay! As he was making his way back to the other end of the area, I almost yelled at him, but decided against it.
