Area Man Embarks On Career Change

Enid, Oklahoma


         After 10 years in the Information Technology field, Area Man and well liked local Internet entrepreneur Dave O'Brien has decided the comfortable network administrator's chair is just a little too comfortable. 


Despite the vehement protests of his family, Mr. O'Brien has decided to pursue a more earthy career.  Last month he put in his notice, sold his home and moved his family to a trailer in Oklahoma to pursue his dream of being a rodeo cowboy.


      "The money is really not very good, I made $178 last month.  So guess you would say it is a bit of a step down for me in pay grade. And a 900 pound bull kicked me in the knee last week, but all in all, it's not a bad way to make a buck".


    When asked what it was about rodeo that could lure him away from a stable, successful, comfortable position he answered "Well, I guess mostly because it's bulls and blood, it's dust and mud, it's the roar of a Sunday crowd, it's the white in his knuckles, the gold in the buckle he'll win the next go 'round, it's boots and chaps, it's cowboy hats it's spur it and let it go, it's the ropes and the reins and the joy and the pain and they call the thing rodeo.  Plus the chicks really seem to dig it".
