What most folks don’t realize about those of us covering the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo is that we get involved in the work and miss most of the action.
The NFR media room isn’t conducive to the coverage, because it’s as far away from the action as you could be while still being inside the Thomas & Mack Center. There are TVs in the media room, and each offers a different viewpoint of the game, but you don’t really get to experience the emotions and the noise that is generated inside that bowl.
So now that I’m home, I’m able to watch the replay of the NFR, with special thanks to my wife, who set the DVR for me. It’s fun being a fan of those phenomenal athletes, and getting to enjoy the fantastic atmosphere that is the Thomas & Mack Center, all from a comfy recliner.
