Monster Energy Invitational 2013
Escape the chilly weather with some Southern-style, yee-haw-worthy fun in midtown. The Professional Bull Riders organization kicks off its 2014 tour with this three-day stint at MSG. Don a cowboy hat and cheer on 35 ace studs as they attempt to stay atop bucking bovines—which can weigh as much as 2,000 pounds—for more than eight seconds. We’re divided between rooting for last year’s champ, Robson Palermo, who is defending his title after recovering from season-ending surgery; comeback kid Pistol Robinson, who broke both legs at the 2012 event; and Bushwacker, one of the top-ranked bulls, with a 96% career buck-off rate. That’s 1,700 pounds of badass beef.
