Kate Upton was at the Professional Bull Riders Pre-Party last week, showing her support for those rough and ready folks who find fulfillment in skull fractures and internal injuries delivered by the throes of giant, pissed off animals. Why is it that people persist in tangling with enraged livestock for the purposes of entertaining arena crowds? Never understood the appeal of it, though apparently Kate does. That makes sense, considering that she has experience with a somewhat less intense animal-based competition - show jumping with horses.
No doubt that experience has given Kate a special place in her heart for those fellas who are the best at hoping on top and hanging on for dear life for as long as possible. She admires their big, shiny trophies and has no problem rubbing against them, handling them and giving them a nice little kiss once the ride is over and the best man has been chosen among the eager contenders, just itching to get a shot at the title. Looking at it like that, I seem to be finding more and more to like about this peculiar sport.
