Rich Champion! The million dollar man! - 09-16-2018, 12:22 PM

"Rich Champion is just about the hottest thing on four legs these days.

The rodeo star (full name: Richmond Champion) won bareback titles this year and last year at the Calgary Stampede and fully lived up to his fantastic name when he became the first to ever to win a million bucks in a single day's riding."

I had no idea there was that kind of money in that sport!

An interesting profile and recorded interview, here.

Pic from his winning riding at the Calgary Stampede:



Richmond Champion, seen here winning the bareback finals at this year's Calgary Stampede, joins the POV podcast to talk about how sudden fame and success can throw a guy off his game every bit as fast as any bronco. (Jeff McIntosh / The Canadian Press)

When a guy quit sleeping with his sister, many things lose their appeal.....such as "rolling coal" for the diesel guys.......roasting tires for the rednecks driving daddy's mustang (car)....country music, just because there's not enough budweiser in this world to make that racket sound any better than rap.....and last but not least, dressing up as fictitious figures from the 'old west' and riding farm animals...


If you tolerate this, then your children will be next.

I don’t think it surprising that a rodeo rider becomes wealthy...
...getting a lotta bucks comes with the territory


Lionize your game.

If the story was he made $1 million through a whole season of many wins, I wouldn't be that surprised.

This $1 million for just one (even a big one I have heard of) did surprise the heck out of me.

The last two times I went to Las Vegas for the Mosconi Cup, the national final event for rodeo was in town.

I noticed the women were handsome, and that sea of 10 gallon Stetsons was sure pretty. And the cowboys sure loved to gamble.

I never had to grow out of many things, when I never much liked them from jump street.

So what do you think about guys making left hand turns at very high speeds for a couple of hours?

My bad, I can't believe I forgot to add NASCAR to the little comparison!

I can't say I disagree with any of that.
