I’ve never been inside Denver Coliseum, and the only reflections I had of the building that houses the National Western Stock Show and Rodeo were photographs of the historic rodeo throughout the years.
I learned a little more today while talking with two-time barrel racing world champion Brittany Pozzi. She has won the Denver rodeo four times in the last six years, and I’m writing the recap from that event for Women’s Pro Rodeo News, the official publication for the Women’s Professional Rodeo Association.
Pozzi told me the cloverleaf pattern is “crooked.” In order to understand what she meant, I found a video on YouTube that put it all on display for me.
I’m glad I did, because it allowed me the opportunity to describe it in a way I hope others will understand. Crooked works, too.
