Here is what Sean wrote about it....
Tyson and I (Sean) took 6th place in the Texas State Hog Wrestling Championships last weekend. A crowd of about 600 was on hand which was cool considering the entire town population is only 1,500. I wore my Pat Tillman jersey and old football cleats. We competed in the Heavyweight division against 20 other teams made up of mostly farmers and cowboys from Texas and Oklahoma. We got a bit nervous when a cowboy on the team in front of ours got his ACL blown out by a hog and had to be carted out of the ring. Tyson and I kind of looked at each other and shared a “what the heck are we doing here” moment. We took on an 85 pound hog and the little fella bit me on the hand but we got the job done in 37 seconds. Not bad for two city boys!
My four year old son competed in the Runt division and won a ribbon. A reporter from the local paper interviewed him afterward and he felt very important.
We also raised a couple hundred dollars for my coworker’s little son, who is currently in a tough battle with neuroblastoma. Thanks everyone.
I'll try to upload the video of Sean chasing the hog...it's pretty hilarious! (stay tuned)
