The bucks stop here

Published September 21, 2006

Anybody who climbs atop a bucking horse or a 2,000-pound bull is probably a macho type, but the bulls and bronco event at the St. Pete Times Forum in Tampa on Saturday night claims to have the toughest of tough going up against each other. This is the final stop in the series, so a champion will be crowned. Troy Carnes, above, is the bullriding points leader going into the event. Dodge World's Toughest Bulls & Broncs Rodeo starts at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at the Times Forum, 401 Channelside Drive, Tampa. Tickets are $16.75 to $46.75. Ages 12 and younger half-price with purchase of full-price adult ticket. (813) 301-2500, www.stpetetimesforum.com.
