Ladies and gentlemen...

Ely Braxton!

What you are about to see

is

ro-de-o history!

-Hey, Joe.

-How's Ely?

He's good.

-Hey, how you doing?

-Hey, Joe.

Did I leave the prescription?

Just like a wedding night.

Not my wedding night.

Here it is.

Let's get some coffee brewing.

HANK:
There.

-There you go.

-Watch the leg.

Now's the best time for us to

get him thinking, while he's

got the pain.

He's not gonna listen to

no doctor, and he's not

gonna listen to me.

That makes two of us.

Check it out, son!

It don't get better than this.

You know, it's funny.

It could've been anything,

from what I hear.

Football, baseball, wrestling.

You just chose bull riding,

is all.

Could've chose anything.

You still can, you know.

No.

Choosing time's come and gone.

Well, maybe for riding bulls

or baseball,

but there's all sorts of other

things to look forward to,

all kinds of other choices

to make.

Never chose bull riding,

Connie.

It just sort of chose me.

That might make it easier to

let it go then.

-Don't you think?

-It might.

We'll see.

CONNIE:
I don't think there's

any other way to see it.

Are you two okay?

CONNIE:
The doctor was

pretty clear about that.

ELY:
Yeah.

Go on, take it down.

-What?

-The poster.

Take it down.

You sure?

I'm sure.

HANK:
I started out

a bull rider, ended up

a bullfighter.

Best goddamn decision

I ever made.

PRCA bullfighting

hall-of-famer

and a few other things I could

mention if I wanted to.

Hold up now.

Point is, I've been doing this

for 15 years on both sides

of the chutes.

I can tell you one thing for

certain, there's only two

ways to ride a bull.

You can either make it happen,

or you can let it happen.

There's been a few champs

that have made it happen

but the really great riders,

the guys that have ridden

hard and long,

guys like George Paul,

Gary Leffew,

those guys just let it happen.

Are you giving them the

"you have to dance

with the bulls" speech again?

Ladies and gentlemen,

my brother Ely Braxton

is back.

And he'll be the first

to tell you, it starts here.

You've gotta clear your heart

and your head,

so that when you get on

that bull, you've already won.

It's just a dancing partner.

You just gotta be man enough

to let it lead.

You've gotta be able to have

enough confidence in yourself,

and faith that you can

sit back and let it happen.

It's attitude, pure attitude.

Whether you're

making a putt,

whether you're riding

a bull...

Attitude.

That's what separates

the best from the rest.

-Let's go.

Clean up the arena.

-All right.

Stay focused. Real simple.

HANK:
Remember what

we talked about.

Clear your head.

Don't force anything on him.

Just react, okay? Okay.

-He's ready to dance,

so are you.

-Okay, man, let's go.

(HORN BLOWS)

(HANK YELLS)

(BOTH LAUGHING)

Shit!

Get up. We gotta go to work.

-What?

-We gotta go to work.

I gotta pick up Connie

to do the vaccines.

You guys need anything else

from town?

Shots already? Seems like

we just did them.

-Always does.

-What?

-The shots.

-The shots!

Got it. We gotta do the shots.

You started it, man.

Thanks, Mom.

Hey, Doc.

Hold. Hold. Okay, he's safe.

-Where's Zapata?

-Who cares? He's a dud.

No one's ever ridden him.

Besides, he needs

his vaccination.

You won him in a card game.

It don't matter.

He needs his vaccination.

-Turn this one out

and go get him.

-All right.

Move! Move!

Guys, roll up Zapata.

Move, bull.

Damn!

He's a big son of a buck.

Yeah. I wouldn't worry

about him. He's all bark,

no bite.

I'm just gonna

center this for you.
