H-Town Showdown: #4 Rodeo Cookoff vs. #5 Blondes vs. Brunettes
Welcome to our H-Town Showdown series. Our brackets are seeded and the contenders for the title are ready to go. On a bi-weekly basis we’ll present a new match-up. There will be four weeks of voting for each competition in each round. So rally up your friends, followers and fans. This will be a true test of attrition.
We’re not too far removed from Blondes vs. Brunettes, but when doesn’t our heart long for Rodeo Cook-Off to once again be upon us. Both are valid contenders for this championship belt, but only one can move on to the next round. Who’s it gonna be? Who ya got?
Seed #4: Rodeo Cookoff
The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo Cookoff is one of the quintessential events on the Houston social calendar. If you want to experience Houston, then you’ve got to check out the Rodeo Cookoff. Meat, music and alcohol, not to mention all the debauchery that goes along with that triumverate is almost enough to turn even the most hardened carnivores into a vegetarian for a day or two, but everyone always comes back for more, as long as they can get a pass to one of the tents. Wonka’s golden ticket doesn’t have anything on this pass to the premier bbq bonanza in the country.
Seed #5: Blondes versus Brunettes
Charity? Competition? Why not a little bit of both? That’s what those behind Blondes vs. Brunettes have accomplished. On one hand it raises money to be donated to the Alzheimer’s Association, the other hand it balled up into a fist of fury… powder puff football fury, that is. This year marked our first trip out to the event and instead of sitting in the hot sun bored to death, we were actually blown away by the spirit of these women vying for a trophy to have their hair color etched into it for future generations to know who was better Blondes or Brunettes.
