The Cow Jumped Over the Calhoun (Video)

The Angels and the Rangers took their rivalry to new levels tonight as Angels outfielder Kole Calhoun took on Rangers Robbie Ross in the annual cow milking contest.

Calhoun, an eager "volunteer" for the contest, had a lot of pressure to perform. After all, the Angels had been victorious in their five previous competitions. 

Each contestant was given two minutes to milk a cow and then switch for two more minutes on the other cow. At the halfway mark, the competition was close, but, upon making the switch, Calhoun surged ahead. In the end, Calhoun crushed Ross, having milked 2 lbs in 4 minutes compared to Ross's 1/4 of a pound, foreshadowing an Angels win on the night.
