OAKLAND—So that cowboy hat that's been languishing on the hard-to-reach shelf in your closet, or those cowboy boots that haven't seen the light of day for years? How about that giant belt buckle that only a real cowboy (or a cowboy's mother) could love? And OMG, do you have chaps? Get ready to break them all out for the Professional Bull Riders Ariat Invitational this weekend at Oracle Arena. Festivities begin at 8pm tonight, 7pm tomorrow. [Racked Inbox]
