v.— «Double mugging is one of two events at the HPJRA finals where contestants utilize the help of other athletes, although their helpers technically won’t be listed as part of the entry. In ribbon roping, boys rope a calf—who has a ribbon tied to its tail—and, generally, a teenage girl grabs the ribbon and races to the other side of the arena to post a time. Given that the boys in double mugging can ask whoever they want to help, John Stallard of Fort Sumner said it was gratifying that his 12-year-old son, Brody, asked him to throw down the calf at this rodeo.» —“HPJRA finals: Dads give ‘mugging’ aid” by Eric Butler Clovis News Journal (New Mexico) July 20, 2006.
