I’m blessed. That’s the reality.
Not many people get to do what they love, and I lived that life for a long time. But that’s not the case now. I’m chasing my gold buckle dreams, just like the contestants about whom I write.
A few days ago I got to visit with a couple of good friends, D.V. Fennell and Justin McDaniel, two of the best bareback riders going down the road these days. I’m blessed to have worked with them closely over the past couple of years, and I’m more blessed to have seen their tremendous athletic feats in action.
Better yet, I’m blessed to call them friends, and I hope we’re all in Vegas celebrating more great things when the 2010 ProRodeo season concludes. They deserve it.
