Professional athletes are kneeling because of some social cause. It’s turned me off from even watching sports on TV. While the freedom of speech covers that behavior, the dishonor they do to our flag and, indirectly, our veterans is disgusting to me. We had the chance to go to The PRCA extreme bull riding Championship in Nephi Utah a few weeks ago. What a refreshing change on how our flag was treated!!!it started by a skydiver bringing the flag into the arena and it was pretty neat. Rodeo fans stood with thier hats off for over five minutes while he floated toward usit always thrills me to see this sight!
Then as the flag hit the dirt of the arena, deputy’s and Nephi policemen who had lined the arena ran out and picked it up. They were joined by 4 world champion cowboys who held the flag during the national anthem. Even held their hats while holding the flag. Not one person kneeling!!!!!Bull riding was great. Lots of great bulls and some good rides.Ended the night with a few fire works. Had a great time and was tickled to see folks respect the flag. The other Pro sport leagues could learn a thing or two from rodeo!!
