Wow! What changes! Round 2 of the event is on OLN right now as I type (at least here in the East Coast). First of all, Mike Adamle as the color commentator? As in, former American Gladiators co-host, Mike Adamle? Ok, this is different. Where is McKee? Will we hear from him again? Well, we'll see how Adamle does.
Oh, and Leah Garcia is back! I hope this is a permanent thing now! I wonder, I just WONDER, if she just wasn't quite happy away from the PBR. Heh, you couldn't stay away for long, Leah. Great to have you back! I just hope Justin McKee comes back sometime, whether Adamle is good or not.

i doubt Leah is back for good... They have always said she would come back and help out if/when they needed her. As far as McKee goes.. he has missed some summer events in the past, he does some roping events so that could be the case but who knows... we will have to see what is going on come September when things get a little more steady.

I read he is the main arena announcer for the Cheynne rodeo(hahaha I can spell that word) on another board. I was happy to see Leah back at least for one event. That Adam guy has a TON to learn, but he is still better than Haber...LOL
We enjoyed the telecast last night. Good to see Leah back, and Mike Adamle did a good job. Yes, he has to learn about bullriding, but at least he wasn't talking constantly and didn't have an "attitude" like Haber. J.W. always adds fun to the commentary. If Justin was doing Cheyenne, then that's why he wasn't in Tulsa, so he'll be back.

I think that Leah might have been there this time because Craig Hummer was in France for the Tour de france. As for Mike Adamle, for his first time he didn't too badly. I'll be happy to have Justin back though. He said a lot of the names wrong. He even said Chris Shivers chris shIvers! Oh well. It was just nice to have a live event again!

I wish that Leah would stay, seeing her back just made me realize how good she was for the job. I think the event was probably one of the best i saw, on the fact of the bulls that where there, and the riders that placed in the top 20. I had been waiting so long for this event, and i cant believe that we have to wait a whole month for another one.
Also does anybody know why they let 16 riders into the short go? because chris was 16th and he got to ride in it.
