Despite the physicality and talent needed for rodeo, and despite fact that rodeos play on the sports cable network ESPN, and despite the steel will needed to climb aboard an angry horse or bull, and despite the practice necessary to ride a charging horse while attempting to lasso a fleeing bovine, despite all that, some people question if rodeo is a sport.
