Maury Tate’s Mo’ Betta Calf Roping has been around enough years that you can count on a few things. Count on just-right weather, showers threatening. Count on all the “big names” showing up. Count on down-home hospitality from the Apache, Oklahoma folks. Count on a unique typing contest that is a highlight of each year’s video. Mike Johnson went up against Fred Whitfield in ’92, Herbert Theriot in ’93, Shawn McMullan in ’94, and Ricky Canton in ’95. Canton came back in ’96 to match James Zant.
