Two Bens

Family secret: We are big fans of Professional Bull Riding and watch it almost every weekend - toughest sport on TV! One of our favorite characters is a toothless, tough guy from Australia named Ben Jones. I thought the resemblance was uncanny:

(We need a cowboy hat.) While our Benjamin came by his gapp-y smile without trauma, he is so pleased to look like his hero, he even built a LEGO figure of Ben Jones. Here's a video of one of Ben's rides and his happy dance afterwards:

Unconventional sport, but we have fun with it and think the riders are amazing athletes. Don't worry, we also enjoy more conventional sports on occasion. :)


  1. What a cute comparison!
    I have nothing but the utmost respect for the bull riders we see each year at our rodeo.
    Fun to watch, but talk about scary!

  2. Ha ha, since you posted that, Benj lost another tooth WITH trauma!


  3. ...but not from bike riding.
