Ty Blasingame, Team roping
Name: Ty Blasingame Age: 28 Hometown: Ramah, Colorado. Got about 500 people there. Event: Team roping
I've been to RodeoHouston for five, six times. Something like that.
My favorite part about RodeoHouston is the committee, which is just so awesome. They've got a red carpet laid out for us; they try to make us feel like rock stars. It's pretty much awesome.
Any rock stars in particular you like? I love Kid Rock. [His earlier stuff, right?] Hell yeah, man. The stuff when I was younger was better.
When I'm not rodeoing, I ride horses, ride colts, spend time at home with the wife. We've got a four-year-old and a five-week-old. They're all here tonight.
If I wasn't rodeoing ... Man, I'd stay home and train horses -- I'd love to do that. Got a trucking business, too -- real little. I'd haul hay all the time.
