FI­NAL THOUGHTS

Erich Rogers

Spin to Win Rodeo - - Departments -

“The morn­ing af­ter I won the world, we went and got the horses and the steers. I bought two - the fifth-round steer, be­cause we won that round, and the 10th-round steer, be­cause it was steer #13, in Las Ve­gas, for the 10th round. It felt good, amaz­ing, re­ally, but they take the buckle from you that night to get your name on it, so it wasn't the same. We loaded up and left Las Ve­gas by 11:30 a.m. I have my name writ­ten all over my truck, so ev­ery­one was honk­ing and wav ing on the way home. At times I feel like the same av­er­age guy, but the peo­ple who know rodeo and rop­ing, they make you feel like some­thing dif­fer­ent—it feels great.”
