Animal Athletes?? Oh sheesh ....

This evening, as hubby channel surfed, he paused for a minute. Even though I was reading, because really, all the channel changing could drive a sober preacher to drink, something caught my ear. I stopped reading and listened. I heard a host/announcer type guy extolling someones virtues. He was exclaiming that "this is a superb animal athlete! Just superb!" I thought, "huh? animal athlete?" And the gent continued, "His kicking and bucking are terric!" Wait a cotton pickin' minute, this guys wearing a cowboy hat, and he's standing next to a rodeo chute. Oh my gosh, he's talking about a freakin' BULL??!!! Animal athlete??? Wow--I wonder if old Bucky has to be drug tested, and how exactly is this twerp gonna get a urine sample?

My brother and his buddies weren't just trying to ride the yearling bulls when we were growing up. Heck no....apparently they were training the local animal athletes....

Sheesh......

That channel surfing drives me crazy too. I'll tell my husband to pick a channel - any channel - and leave it there, but he never listens.

Hehehe. I will start describing my cat as an animal athlete now when she runs through the house.
