This week, I’ve been honored with another cover story in Vegas Seven magazine. Here, I step a little bit away from the gambling beat and investigate the past and potential future of National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas:
The Wrangler National Finals Rodeo, which comes to the Thomas & Mack Center Dec. 6-15, is like a pair of cowboy boots that have been sitting in the closet for too many months. At first, they pinch a little, but after a while, they seem to flex to fit your feet, and you notice that you kind of like the swagger they lend you.
Very fun piece to write, not the least because I didn’t have to crunch one set of gaming numbers for it. Which is fun in its own way for me, but it’s always nice to have a change of scenery. Great photos from UNLV Special Collections and the Las Vegas News Bureau add quite a bit to the narrative.
