KANSAS CITY, Mo. — In a tribute to the Chiefs beating the 49ers in Super Bowl LIV, Professional Bull Riders has renamed a bull “Mahomie” ahead of its upcoming event at the Sprint Center.
The bull, described as a “bovine athlete from Paradigm Bull Company” in a statement from PBR, will compete in the Caterpillar Classic on Sunday, March 1 at 1:45 p.m. The classic is a three-day rodeo, which is a part of the PBR series, Unleash The Beast.
“Mahomie” will even have special ear tags, which show his name, the number 15, and a Chiefs logo.
PBR World Champion Jess Lockwood will be attempting Mahomie, looking to reclaim a world number 1 ranking, according to the statement.
The PBR Unleash The Beast will run from Friday, Feb. 28 through Sunday, March 1.
The show kicks off with the WCRA’s Royal City Roundup, a showcase of nine athletes competing in each of the eight rodeo disciplines: bareback riding, women’s breakaway roping, saddle bronc riding, steer wrestling, team roping, tie-down roping, barrel racing, and bull riding.
