This past weekend Adam & I went to the Manatee County Fair with our friends Chris & Lauren Denorfia (Chris plays for the Padres). The main reason we were going was because Jake Owen was playing there, and that's one of Adams favorite country singers. We ended up only watching him play a few songs because we spent the rest of the time on the rides. I had originally told everyone that I was not going to step foot on any of the rides, but after Adam spent $20 on the "unlimited rides" wristband, I kind of felt obligated. So off we were to the rides, and luckily I didn't die. Although, after the Gravitron, I sure did feel like I was going to.No really, I thought that I really might have a brain aneurysm after that. It messed me up homie! I'm not gonna lie, there were some pretty redneck people there, which leads me to the Robinson's Pig Paddlin' Porkers. It was a pig racing show and ohmysweetbabyJesusInHeaven it was hi-larious. I don't even know where to begin to explain this to you, so just trust me on this one.
Once we were about done, Lauren and I decided we wanted to ride the mechanical bull. Her husband bet that Lauren could stay on longer than I could, and Adam also bet that she would too..so the pressure was on for me to win! But, let's get real here, I've never been on a mechanical bull before so I was one scared little pup! Not to mention, there were like 5,000 people watching me and we could only use one hand to hold on. Lauren only paid to ride one time, and she stayed on for 16 seconds...and well, just watch the videos to find out how I did.
Here is my 2nd go at it...we ended up both staying on for 16 seconds. I don't know about her, but I am still sore from being thrown around! Please note that they are playing the Spice Girls "Say You'll Be There" and I decided to get cocky and sing a long as I am trying to stay on..that's when the guy says "well, we will take care of that..." then starts spinning the thing in circles..that's what I get, I guess..
This last video is of the mirror maze that we went through. Now, on this particular video, Adam attempts to narrate through the whole thing, but nobody is listening to him which you will see right when the video starts. He tries to talk to me but I completely ignore him and go on with my merry way. Poor thing..
