Don’t Wear Red

It’s possible to smell the bulls from the cheap seats, but for a truly exhilarating spectator experience, get as close to the ring as possible at this weekend’s Professional Bull Riders event at the Sprint Center. Dirt will fly, cowboys will get tossed and, at some point, a confused and angry bull will rush the fence. And for a split second, whoever is on the other side of it will wonder, He can’t get through that, can he? He can’t. But coming face to face with a half-ton of testosterone is a powerful thrill. At the very least, it will make your next burger taste that much better (or worse). Tickets start at $11, but getting real close costs about $100. Call 800-745-3000 or see sprintcenter.com. The bulls start running at 6:50 p.m. today and 2 p.m. Sunday.

Sat., April 2, 6:50 p.m.; Sun., April 3, 2 p.m., 2011
