I posted on a thread the other day that Lance and Sheryl were here at a Leukemia and Lymphoma benefit at Mandalay Bay last weekend. I wonder if he took in an evening at the Rodeo that's here? Doubt it.
Lemme backtrack: The National Finals Rodeo is here in town for the 20th consecutive year (they just renewed their contract for another 10 years) and it's a week and a half of partying, bronc riding, steer wrestling, calf ropin', and bullriding every night for 40,000 fans, most of whom are from TX.
Being a casino dealer for the past 8 years, I have dealt with these rodeo rubes and talk about a bunch of conformists (not to mention stiffs) - same incomprehensable drawl, same $hit-kickin' attitude, same tin of Skoal in their left rear pocket, same Wrangler jeans, same 10-gallon hats that they never take off, all drinking the same friggin' cocktail (Coors Light and Crown Royal), same dolled-up girfriends who wear too much foundation and are trying to "out-peacock" one another...I guess everyday is Halloween for these hicks...
I'm originally a midwesterner who has never been to Texas and I always thought that cowboy stuff is a state pastime, but I've never seen Lance wearing a cowboy hat like the fake Texan George W. does plus L.A. has no discernable accent, etc. The most Texas thing he used to do in his younger days was that "Hook 'em Horns" sign .
He might as well be from Chicago. $0.01
