Ty Murray is the modern day King of The Cowboys........He is also my king. I have been following Ty for a good many years. However, I was ever so surprised to see him show up on Dancing with the Stars!!! Anywhere but Dancing with the stars! Not TY,,,,,Yep, sure enough, that's him!!!
Now, I'm not a big fan of Dancing with the Stars,,,,,,Well, I like the girls OK, but it bores me pretty quickly. I was flipping channels one night a few weeks ago when I caught a glimpse of TY MURRAY.......Whoa,,,,hold on, that's not TY MURRAY,,,,,,,,the King of the Cowboys on there "dancing" is it? I had to see that!!! How in the world did they ever talk him into doing that???
I saw this kid "top" a good many bucking broncs and bulls, but never thought I'd see him on this show. In watching, I could tell from the expression on his face that he would probably be much, more comfortable on the worst "Bucking, Snorting, Kicking Bull" in any Rodeo string than up there Dancing with the Stars. I could almost hear him saying "How did I ever let them talk me into this"! "What was I thinkin'?" I'm surprised he made it through the first round, but he's made it several rounds. I was sure he was going to be voted off last night,,,,,but he wasn't, he's still in there.
This "kid", is only 39 years old, born and raised right here in Phoenix and has been riding bucking stock since he was two years old. His Dad was also a Rodeo hand, as was his Mother. Ty was instrumental in starting the PBR TV bull riding events show and is currently President of the Company. He has won 7 "All Around World Champion Cowboy" titles and was the youngest "Millionaire" in Rodeo at age 23. His career earnings in Rodeo is over 3 million dollars... He's had reconstructive surgery on both knees and both shoulders and received a broken jaw bone. At age 39, he is officially retired from Rodeo competition and lives with his beautiful country singer wife Jewel Kilcher on a 2100+ acre ranch in Texas.
If you haven't been watching Dancing with the Stars, take a look at this Ole' Cowboy and you will see what I'm talking about. All I can say is "Go get'em Ty and keep on Spurring"!!! However, I really feel that he wouldn't mind losing a bit!!! He's not ONE bit comfortable up there!!!! How long can he HOLD ON?
It was 100 deg yesterday in Phoenix for the first time this year and it was 93 here at North Ranch. However, with 3% humidity, you didn't notice the heat at all. Get in the shade and it was cool! We are starting to get things rounded up to head out of here in about 2 weeks, with May 7TH as our targeted departure date... Time flies!!!
It is a GREAT WEEK!!!!
Thanks for stopping by.....
