Go to the PBR website. Click on Schedule, then BFTS, then Monster Energy BuckOff, then Get Tickets. Whose face is on that page, listed as last year’s winner of the Madison Square Garden event? Guess. Do I have to say his name? (to quote Bruce Springsteen)
I was at that Championship Sunday, and the judges declared Fabiano Vieira and JB tied. The reality: they did one of their famous .25 anti-Brazilian dings to give J.B. a leg up. (Not JB’s fault.) In my book (and a lot of other peoples’, judging by the reaction in the Garden), Fabiano was the only winner of that event. The judges just couldn’t stand to have that happen.
So now the PBR has posted its revisionist history on its website. Despicable. All the people who don’t know any better will believe that J.B. was the 2014 winner in NYC. There were “two” winners: Fabiano Vieira was the first.
I wonder how they’ll fix things tomorrow.
