Madison Square Garden
31st to 33rd Sts. between Seventh & Eighth Aves.
January 6-8, $15-$205

The World’s Most Famous Arena is promoting this year’s Professional Bull Riders Madison Square Garden Invitational as “three snot-spewing, bone-crushing, adrenaline-soaked performances,” and that pretty much gets right to the point of this heated competition that starts the new year in a wild and woolly way. While the feared Bushwacker recovers from successful arthroscopic surgery, such other bulls as Shaky Waters, Buckshot, Mean Machine, La Grange, Frost Bite, Yellow Dog, Complete Debacle, and John Doe will try to throw such riders as Cord McCoy, Kody Lostroh, Ryan Dirteater, Cody Nance, Douglas Duncan, Paulo Lima, Stormy Wing, and 2011 MSG Invitational champion Valdiron de Oliveira off their backs in less than eight seconds. The sixth annual event also includes meet and greets with Lima, de Oliveira, and Duncan at the Garden’s mall entrance, an autograph session at the Penn Station K-Mart, and a fan club breakfast at Niles.
