FRIED TWINKIES, BUCKLE BUNNIES, & BULL RIDERS A Year Inside the Professional Bull Riders Tour

By Peter, Josh

Rodale Books. Very Good+ in Very Good+ dust jacket. 2005. First Edition. Hardcover. 1594861196 . HC/DJ - near fine. Ex-library book, but still in great condition - pages and cover clean, tight and unmarked. Laminated cover and usual ex-lib type markings. Jacket has a little scuffing to laminate. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 336 pages; "*Starred Review* The argument can be made that the Professional Bull Riders Tour may be the most dangerous, least financially rewarding of all sporting endeavors. Skull fractures, punctured lungs, and destroyed knees are all relatively routine injuries. At least now there is a million-dollar payout for the overall champion each season, but even that is in deferred dollars. Peter, a sportswriter for the New Orleans Times-Picayune, spent the 2004 season with the PBR tour and offers a penetrating portrait of a sport that stands at that awkward stage between minor league and national acceptance. The riders represent many nations besides America--some say Troy Dunn, an Australian, was the best ever--and Peter gives a glimpse into many of their lives. Much space is devoted to defending champion Justin McBride, a media darling with his boyish good looks who is only now realizing that the toughest part of being a champ is staying a champ. The book's title? Fried Twinkies are a genuine but rare concession delicacy, and buckle bunnies are the young ladies who curry the favor of the young macho men who ride the bulls. This is a tough book to walk away from. The icon of book-length sports journalism, John Feinstein, would be proud to include it in his body of work. It's that good. " [530] .
