Professional Bull Riding Invitational returns to MSG this weekend

We know it sounds unlikely, but rounding up a bunch of friends and grabbing tickets to the Professional Bull Riders Invitational at Madison SquareGarden may be one of the most fun things you can do this weekend in NYC.

Speaking from experience, The Big Adventure can vouch for this surreal and extraordinaire experience. Which is only made better by the fact that you probably know nothing about Bull Riding. The PBR is the pinnacle of a paradox when you witness, smack-dab in the middle of NYC, men riding three ton bulls on the exact same floor on which the Knicks played 48 hours earlier. The crowds are lively and diverse ranging from irony-seeking local school kids to legit cowboys that moseyed down to MSG from…well…no one is sure where. And Flint theRodeo Clown (really) will keep you amused as you watch cowboys grib a saddle for deal life as angry bulls try to buck them to the hard dirt.

The best part is that tickets are cheap, the sport is inviting and they come back every January. We invite you watch 40 men try to tackle a bull for eight seconds on the "Toughest Sport on Dirt.” (Don’t make the mistake of confusing this event with a Rodeo) Did you know that even the animals can get penalties in this sport? It’s true. Flags are thrown. Lasers and Fireworks are deployed.

Events are this Friday and Saturday at 8:00 PM, Sunday at 1:00 PM. Tickets start at $15 and there are discount tickets at Goldstar Right Here for “THREE SNOT-SPEWING, BONE-CRUSHING, ADRENALINE-SOAKED PERFORMANCES!” (Thanks MSG PR Machine for that nugget).
