Ever wanted to know how hard Hot Damn really bucks? The wait is over. In a case of cowboy culture meeting Silicon Valley, a high-tech gadget about the size of a "plenty pack" of chewing gum is changing the way television viewers look at professional bull riding.

Poor Jesse Bail (right) just can't seem to stay healthy. If it's not one thing (broken right leg) it's another (broken navicular bone). It seems as if Bail hasn't had a healthy day in the last two years. "It is frustrating," said Bail. But with another surgery (June 6) in the books, he's hoping his optimism will pay off and he'll be back by the Fourth of July even if he has to switch hands to ride.
