This week we headed out to the Bayer Museum of Agriculture for a fun yet difficult challenge of tractor jousting. Riding on a tractor holding a pool cue, you had to drive around and spear 6 disc hanging from a pole. However, with our West Texas wind, the discs were moving all over the place.

I started I Beat Pete back in 1995 and tonight is my 900th challenge. We headed out to Sweetwater to race rattlesnakes. The 60th annual rattlesnake roundup will be from March 9-11 at the Nolan County Coliseum in Sweetwater. We were supposed to race in the Mustang Bowl but it was too cold so me moved inside the field house. It’s my 900th I Beat Pete challenge tonight on Sports Xtra at 10:30pm rattlesnake racing in Sweetwater. pic.twitter.com/eoSriStlKI — Pete Christy ...
This week's challenge was a cool one. So cool and you can get a team together and play. It's human foosball. Played just like table version, humans move side to side on poles trying to kick a ball into a net.
The Wounded Warrior Amputee Softball team was in Lubbock over the weekend playing three games at Lubbock Christian University's Hays field.
