  • Chris Wilson doesn’t ride bulls anymore.

        “You have to be a special person to ride a bull,” the 37-year-old husband and father of four said over the phone Monday.  “I’ve been stepped on.  I’ve been rammed into the ground.  And I’ve been sat on.”

    The sport of bull riding is a young man’s game, Wilson said.  “ I’ve seen guys get thrown 50 feet into the air.”  He said he has a brother-in-law who is paralyzed from the neck down from bull riding.
