Far away and long ago, in the tiny land of Bleshy, lived a nice old man in a nice old cottage, who hoped to live out his last few years in peace.

Bar Hollifield And The Showdown In The Sandlot

By |August 17th, 2020|

Barry Hollifield, Bar, to his friends, was a big man. And by big I mean he stood six feet, one inch tall, and was thick and strong. But right now, more than anything else, he was just sore. His planned eight second ride on a particularly ornery bull named Menace had come to an abrupt end at just 4.5 seconds, when he was vaulted off his back, and stomped on as Menace continued to vent his anger. Fortunately the always
