After the third go-round of the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo, Trevor Brazile and Patrick Smith took the South Point Hotel & Casino stage for the Montana Silversmiths Go-Round Buckle Presentation.
That’s when Treston Brazile took the stage for the first time during the 2010 Wrangler National Finals Rodeo. He waved his hat in the air – “He learned that from his mom; that’s what she does with her hat,” Trevor said, referring to his lovely wife, Shada. – and he moved around the stage as if he were a natural.
If you’ve never met Trevor Brazile, let me explain that while he’s as talented an athlete as you’ll ever meet, he’s also humble. Demonstrative displays are out of character for the 14-time world champion.
But when Randy Corley mentioned Brazile’s record-breaking eighth all-around gold buckle, which he clinched after the second go-round, Brazile took Treston’s cue and waved his hat in the air, just like any 3-year-old boy, or elated world champion, would do.
