After a prolonged sports debate with an acquaintance over whether football, hockey, baseball or basketball was the favorite sport of Wonderful Wyoming, we looked towards the internet for the correct answer. Although not a huge surprise, we quickly realized all of our ball-related guesses were incorrect.

Wyoming officially designated rodeo as the state sport in 2003. Now of course we have our fair share of all types of high school, collegiate and even minor league sports teams, but our states' soul belongs to the cowboy.
