It’s just a few minutes until the kickoff of this year’s Super Bowl, the NFL’s championship game featuring the New England Patriots vs. the New York Giants.
It’s a rematch of Super Bowl XLII, the 2007 championship game that took place just four years ago and one that the Giants won 17-14.
This weekend, another rematch took place, and the reigning world champion bareback rider was the beneficiary. The last time Kaycee Feild rode a Carr Pro Rodeo bucking horse, he scored the 10th-round victory at the 2011 Wrangler National Finals Rodeo.
On Saturday, Dec. 10, Feild matched moves with MGM Deuces Night for 87 points.
On Saturday, Feb. 4, Feild and Carr’s Dirty Jacket danced across the Will Rogers Coliseum dirt for 89 points to win the short go-round of the Fort Worth Stock Show Rodeo and move into a tie for the average title with Will Lowe.
It’s proof what great match-ups can do for sports. Let’s hope that happens in Indianapolis today.
