Bull Blowout 2015


Imagine hopping on the back of 1500 pound
bull and then literally trying to hold on for dear life. Well if your sane like the
rest of us you’re probably not give it a go. Instead you’ll do the not so insane thing
and check out the bi-annual Bull Blowout and watch the professionals handle the beefy animals
with horns. On a serious note though, the Bull Blowout is a finely tuned machine with
professionals at every turn. Bull Blowout is where you bring the 50 States together
with a lot of cowboys from all different states, and bulls from different stock contractors
and we bring it here twice a year for everybody to come and enjoy right here in Murray Kentucky.
You know bull riding is exciting sport the most dangerous sport in America. That’s what
we’re going to try to run some of the best bulls we can pick up around this part of the
country, run them underneath a bunch of the boys we think can ride as good as this part
of the country. Let everybody kind of shoot it out and chew it out and let winner take
all right here this weekend, so it’s Bull Blowout that’s what it is we going to blow
it out we going to let them all have a big time and I hope the crowd has a big time and
everybody gets to see something. Been doing this since 1995 announcing rodeos all over
the country and I’ve been doing the Bull Blowout right here in Murray for probably the last
10 to 12 years. My role is to keep the play by play going in the bull riding just like
you would at a basketball or baseball game I keep it going here with the music and entertainment
to all the folks here. I myself was in the stock contractor, rode stock contractor business
and been judging now for this has been going on 20-something years and I’ve been up here
just about every year that they’ve had it. The Bull Blowout has been a staple of the
Expo Center since the mid 90’s. We have had Bull Blowout at the Murray Expo Center
since ’96 it started out to be a annual event for a couple of years then we went to a semi-annual
or biannual event. We sure do appreciate they have such a nice facility here they you know
allow us to rent it out and you know we bring people to Murray State that maybe have never
seen the college or this arena and so we bring a lot of people here and so its a nice facility.
Competitors we can have anywhere from 100 to 150 a night as far as the audience we always
have a good crowd I would say anywhere from 1,500 to 2,500 we should expect. At first
the Bull Blowout may not be the most appetizing event on your schedule, but it has more to
offer than meats the eye. That’ all I gotta say is just come on down to the Bull Blowout
we’re going to have a big time and what I like most of all is parents and grandparents
are going to come in here and bring their kids for this mutten bustin’ now mutten bustin’
seems to be one of the biggest deals they come in here it’ll be packed house everybody
is cheering and clapping for kids riding on the mutten bustin’. Really we just try to
make it a family type event we want everyone to come out and see the event so we make family
friendly we have the funny man here to entertain. So if their not just in to bull riding or
barrel racing there’s a lot of other things they can do. The comradery the people that
you work with if you can’t work with people and be able to help the kids that are coming
along, now they’re kids because I’m 50 years old so the kids that are coming along when
I was started first started doing the whatever I was one of the kids and I looked up those
people now and I’m trying to be one of those people that they can come to and understand
that being a judge like I am if I say something whatever they don’t come and kick dirt at
you hem-hal around you they respect what you’re doing, but it takes that from the backdoor
to the front door to understand it and being with those kind of people or whatever and
watching great athletes great bulls come around I like to watch the young bulls and everything
like that come up to the I think most of all is just being around the folks that respect
you and you have to respect them too show that mutual respect.
