Cow Milking and Roping: What Was I Thinking?

It’s time for your fried food fix. The Tulsa State Fair is back. It’s 11 day run began on Thursday, and Kristin and I anchored our 4, 5 and 6 o’clock newscasts from out there for the first two days.

We kicked off something new this year. We call it our Anchor Challenge. On Thursday, Kristin challenged me to a cow milking competition. What?? Kristin loves animals, and is right at home around horses, pigs, goats, cows, etc. She’s a true cowgirl (she went to Oklahoma State). So I’m guessing she’s got me beat on this one. Here’s how it turned out:

Shocked? Me too. But that cow definitely didn’t like what I was doing to her.

So that was our first Anchor Challenge. On Friday it was my turn to pick. I e-mailed Kristin in the morning with my idea.

  • Me: “Hey, about a roping competition?”
  • Her: “Brilliant! But I do have some experience.”
  • Me: “Yeah, sure.”

I must’ve not had my morning cup of cow milk yet. What was I thinking? I’ve never roped anything before. I can barely tie my shoelaces. I guess I was “utter”ly too confident from my cow milking victory. Check it out:

Kristin is good. She never missed. I’ll admit, I got lucky. But I don’t think I’m ready for calf-roping. I’ll stick to garbage cans.
