This past Sunday, the Built Ford Tough Bullriding Series kicked off at Madison Square Garden, as Cody Nance won the first of 29 events that will culminate with a championship in Las Vegas later this year. Nance’s fourth career victory bested Valdiron de Oliveira, who is the series’ defending champion. And I just assume that you’re skimming this information and wondering, “So what the hell does this have to do with Kate Upton?” because powerful forces brought all of us creepy bastards together here for a reason.
Last Friday, Upton was a special guest for the 6th annual Champions of Professional Bull Riding Madison Square Garden Invitational Pre Party, along with New York Giants tight ends Jake Ballard and Bear Pascoe. Upton, who could probably earn billions charging people to watch her ride a mechanical bull, was on hand to do what she does best – stand next to trophies and look wonderful.
More importantly, she also spent some time with children from the Garden of Dreams Foundation, which hosts special events with New York sports teams and celebrities to “make dreams come true” for kids dealing with a variety of hardships. And it makes me a little happier to know that those kids share my dream of one day meeting Upton, too.
In the meantime, I’ll have to settle for photoshops of picture No. 6.
