Original Post Text:
There are a lot of nice people in the world, and a good deal of them tend to congregate at rodeos. Vince Connelly is one of those people, and what’s more, all three of his sons rode at Pleasanton in multiple events.
The night had drawn on, and in the late August night, the lights, flags and shadows that accompanied the deepening dark gave Vince a mystical quality as he waited for the bullriding, the last event of the evening.
