I covered the Bell County Rodeo this week. While I have covered rodeos all over the place, the first day of this rodeo was something new for me. Normally, you just hear the national anthem followed by a Christian prayer. But this time, the announcer spoke for all the faiths practiced in the U.S., mentioning that he had great respect for them. Everyone then bowed their heads in prayer. I don't know if this
is happening at other rodeos, but I was was pleasantly surprised to witness it in Central Texas.
