I love my job, and there are many times I get to do some really cool stuff.
Take an e-mail I received last week from Shane Ewing with KAKE-TV in Wichita, Kan. Shane and fellow sports reporter Jake Schlegel wanted to do a segment called “Sports Tips” for its sportscast, and they wanted to do something with the Professional Roughstock Series’ Midwest Classic, which takes place Saturday in Salina, Kan.
So Shane and Jake made their way to Salina on Thursday for the shoot and got to work with two-time PBR world champion Justin McBride, who is part of the Midwest Classic field in bareback riding. The segment was great, and I’m glad I got to have a little part in it. Special thanks to Kevin Contardo with the PRS for his assistance in getting this done, since I couldn’t be on site.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. The show begins at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at the Bicentennial Center in Salina.
