A lot has happened in Cord McCoy’s life in the last year.
He got engaged last November, then took off on a trip around the world in “The Amazing Race” with his brother, Jet. Then for three months beginning on Valentines Day, the world watched the CBS-TV reality series and found two humble, intelligent Oklahomans make a run at $1 million. The McCoys became fan favorites, and their down-home, hard-working attitude was just one of the reasons why.
He also plied his trades of ranching and riding bulls, the latter saw him fall off the Professional Bull Riders premier tour, the Built Ford Tough Series, and complete another amazing race to get back on before season’s end. He also produced a PBR event in Ada, Okla., and attached his name to another in Atlantic, Iowa.
Oh, and he’s been involved with the planning of his nuptials, albeit limited — he’s left the bulk of that load to his lovely bride-to-be, Sara Best. Tomorrow afternoon, my wife, daughters and I will be on hand in Atlantic to see those two wonderful people take the next step in their lives together. It will be a beautiful experience, and I’m blessed to share their day with them.
I’m also proud of my friends.
