Flint Rasmussen is one of the best funnymen in rodeo-related sports.
He has a nice contract with the Professional Bull Riders Built Ford Tough Series, but he regularly works Vegas in some regard during the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo. He has a talk-show type program during the day, and he teams with Randy Corley every night for the Montana Silversmiths Go-Round Buckle Presentation at the South Point Hotel & Casino.
But there were times he was more straight man to the comical contestants who had earned the right to share the South Point stage each night. There will be great stories coming on twisTEDrodeo.com about the funny sights and sounds that came out of this year’s NFR, so keep checking back.
In the interim, let me share this tale with you:
Treston Brazile is 3 years old and has learned over all those years the ins and outs of good roping. His dad, Trevor, owns 14 world championships, eight in the all-around, three in tie down roping, two in steer roping and one in team roping-heading.
Yeah, he knows a thing or two about roping.
So when Trevor posted a 6.9-second run to share the fifth-round victory with Cody Ohl, Treston was waiting with wise words for his father: “I told you TWO wraps and a huey,” Treston said, referring to the half-hitch that goes into tying three legs together in tie down roping.
When Trevor mentioned that he’d won the go-round, Treston looked sternly at his father’s face with two fingers extended and said, “Two wraps, always.”
