The 65th annual Mid-Winter Fair Rodeo at Blackham Coliseum in Lafayette kicks off tonight, Thursday, January 12th, and runs through Sunday, January 15th.

From bull riding, saddle bronc, steer wrestling, calf roping, barrel racing, mutton bustin’ and more, this rodeo has it all.

And in a time not that far long gone, two radio disc jockeys thought it would be fun to show the world how easy it is to be a cowboy and do cowboy stuff, you know, like roping a calf.

Easy, cheesy, peezy, right? Watch below for the real results. Then when you're at the rodeo this weekend, you will realize what real athletes are supposed to look like.
