Despite the protests of PETA, the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo -- or RodeoHouston, as it's known -- has remained the premier annual event on the H-town calendar. Sadly, the events get roped up this weekend.
Today's closing rodeo events at Reliant Stadium include the Finals Performance for ropin', ridin' and wrasslin'. Longtime radio faves Brooks & Dunn also return with enough hits to do a week's worth of shows. (Quick quiz: Which one has the hat, and which one has the beard?)
Tomorrow brings the Collegiate Championships for the ropin' and rustlin' action. And at 6:15 p.m., newly crowned redneck country queen Gretchen Wilson poses a question to cowboys: Would you rather be blown off by Faith Hill after taking her to a fancy restaurant, or would you rather get some real action with me for the price of a 12-pack of MGD?
