v.— «Snyder is a 26-year-old from Raymore, Mo., with a black hat, a dignified air and a nose reconstructed a few years ago by a surgeon who used Snyder’s driver’s license as a guide. That procedure followed a head-to-head run-in with a bull—a brutally common collision known among riders as being jerked down or, more graphically, dashboarded.» —“Bull Riders Wait All Day for a Few Seconds of Fury” by John Branch in Baltimore, Maryland New York Times Jan. 4, 2009.
