VIDEO: 5 things you want to know before going to Wyoming
CHEYENNE -- If you're like me, when I see there's a video of a comedian talking about Wyoming, I tend to cringe a bit.
How mad is this guy about to make me?
How misinformed is this guy going to be?
How many jokes about the rural life are there?
Then, I stumbled on a video by Josh Pray. This self-proclaimed actor, event host, inspirational speaker and, yes, comedian, released a 4:06 hilarious -- and accurate -- depiction of the Cowboy State, in my opinion.
He talked about gun ownership, some of our lukewarm feelings toward the state directly south of us, cowboy and cowgirl attire and our love of wide open spaces and the sparse population that helps make this place so great.
His "No. 2 amendment" was also spot on -- "Cowboy football is huge."
Pray says Wyoming fans feel like their team can hang with anyone. And don't you dare leave out the school's all-time rusher when talking about one of the best to ever do it.
"If you ever want to talk about one of the greatest football players to ever play and you don't mention Brian Hill, that he rushed for 4,200 yards and that he could've been better than anybody that come out of anywhere, than you are not from Wyoming.
"You are not a Wyoming Cowboy football fan -- they ain't going to stand for that nonsense."
He's not lying.
Hill rushed for 4,287 yards in just three seasons in Laramie, to be exact. He surpassed Devin Moore as the school's all-time leading rusher in 2016. Hill also owns the two best single-season rushing performances in UW history, gashing defense for 1,860 yards in 2016 and 1,631 in '15. His 35 rushing touchdowns is also atop the record books.
Hill was selected in the fifth round of the 2017 NFL Draft by the Atlanta Falcons. He signed with the Tennessee Titans this offseason.
