Tuff Hedeman is a true American sports superstar. The Babe Ruth of bull riding, Tuff is a legend of the sport. Known to many as the colorful friend to Lane Frost in the movie based on true events, “8 Seconds,” Tuff continues to share his love for the sport today as the president of Championship Bull Riding (CBR). Earlier this morning Tuff took a couple minutes to talk with me about the CBR World Championships that go on at Cheyenne Frontier Days Monday and Tuesday night.

Growing up a rodeo, and more specifically a bull riding fan, there really is not too many things that are neater than getting to talk to one of the guys I looked up to. Tuff is a fantastic person with a huge heart, and I thank him for taking some time out his morning to sit down and chat with me!
