"From Roughriding to Rough Ice" Fort Worth Sports & Outdoors Tip by pedersdottir
Fort Worth Sports & Outdoors: 10 reviews and 7 photos
The coliseum in the Stockyards District played host to a Friday night rodeo. It included bull riding and roping in clouds of swirling dust - just what one expects in a place that calls itself CowTown.
Downtown on Saturday night we caught the UNEXPECTED: a hockey game between the CHL Fort Worth Brahmas and the Tulsa Oilers, an icy free-for-all worthy of Ulf Samuelson and Company. (Well, almost.)
No Jumbotron instant replays here. "Offsides" was never called. But a Texas crowd participating in an essentially Canadian game was entertainment in itself. On-ice fights brought the crowd to its feet more than once - there was a strong temptation to shout 'get 'im, cowboy!"
Off ice attractions included some mighty fine cheerleaders.
Equipment: In all, a good show for $5.00. Tickets were available through our hotel concierge and could also be purchased at the gate.
Directions: The Fort Worth Convention Center is at 9th and Main Streets. Parking readily available nearby or in the Center's underground garage.
