Seamus Sullivan, a playwright from Washington, DC, has a great overview of his experience at the rodeo during the Montana State Fair. Here’s the intro:
I want you to know, Dad, that this isn’t your fault. You did everything a father could to impart a love of baseball. You made sure I had all the cheese fries my twelve-year-old stomach could hold at those long-ago Trenton Thunder games. Last week you made me finally check out Nats Stadium, where even without Strasburg pitching we saw the home team trounce the number one Braves and Nyger Morgan steal home.
But my heart belongs to the rodeo now.
Marissa took me to the rodeo Thursday night in Great Falls, Montana.
