One of the great things I get to do in my job is take a rodeo neophyte and explain my passion for the sport.
That happened last Thursday while announcer Scott Grover and I visited with Mike Collier during the Good Day Tulsa segment on Tulsa’s Channel 8 as we promoted the Will Rogers Stampede PRCA Rodeo.
Collier knows nothing about rodeo, but he seemed to be excited as Grover and I shared our experience and about what fans can experience when they come to ProRodeo. These contestants were the best of the best, from world champions like Rocky Patterson and Dean Gorsuch to Wrangler National Finals Rodeo qualifiers like Carlee Pierce, Matt Bright and Isaac Diaz.
Collier is a meteorologist at Channel 8, but also he’s one of the three main cast members of Good Day Tulsa. Hopefully next year he can do the weather with a live remote from the Will Rogers Stampede and maybe meet the cast of characters who produce the annual event.
That’d make for a great show, don’t you think?
