I’m listening to the final night of the All American ProRodeo Finals on ProRodeoLive.com, and thanks to Steve Kenyon’s great work, I’m able to feel as though I’m in Waco, Texas.
Like a lot of tournament-style formats, there is a clean-slate semifinals featuring the top nine contestants in each event from the preliminary performances – bull riding will feature just eight cowboys, since NFR qualifier Clayton Savage is out with an injury he suffered Friday night, Kenyon reported.
The top four from the semifinals then qualify for the finals, and the contestant with top ride or score will then be crowned event champion. We just witnessed a similar format two weeks ago at the Justin Boots Championships in Omaha, Neb.
Kenyon called the action at the River City Rodeo, and he’ll be in Las Vegas for the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo. He provides you with up-to-date information and presents it in a fashion that keeps you interested and intrigued.
If you’re not listening yet, you should go now. It’s worth it.
