I feel rather foolish. It took me eight days to figure out the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo had livestreaming of the rodeo on its website.
I’ve been missing out on something special. The action is great, and there are plenty of added benefits to taking in RodeoHouston this way. I loved the interviews, something that would jazz up about any production. Plus, I believe, the livestreaming is what patrons inside Reliant Stadium are viewing when they look at the screens.
With this feature, fans got to see Kansan Jeanne Anderson win Tuesday’s second go-round in Super Series II. Anderson, a veteran barrel racer, qualified for the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo for the first time in her career his past December.
Tyson Durfey placed second in tie-down roping for the second straight night and leads the average. His $2,000 in earnings puts him in a tie for most money earned with Cory Solomon, Monday’s round winner, and Shank Edwards, who won the second go.
Other winners were bareback rider Jessy Davis, team ropers Turtle Powell and Jhett Johnson, steer wrestler Kenneth Lewis and bull rider Clayton Savage. Saddle bronc rider J.J. Elshere took advantage of a re-ride to win his second straight go-round.
And the best part is I got to watch it live from the comfort of my recliner.
