Hall Of Fame Jockey Angel Cordero Jr. Breaks With Texas Liberal

Texas Liberal once went to Saratoga race track during the August racing season. While at the track, the great jockey Angel Cordero Jr. walked just a few feet in front of me. I followed horse racing at the time and I never forgot seeing Cordero close up. I felt Cordero and I had a special lifelong bond.

So imagine how my heart sank when I saw a picture in today’s Cincinnati Enquirer of Cordero hugging OJ Simpson at the Kentucky Derby. How could he hug OJ? Angel is not the person I thought he was and I consider our “lifelong” bond broken.

  1. That is lame. Cordero must not have been thinking. Did you read how some guy kicked OJ out of his restaurant? That is a much better response.

    I have a Jerry Bailey bobble-head doll. Next to my only other one, a Paul O’Neill (alas, in NYY uniform) Almost totally irrelevant but thought you might appreciate.

  2. Regretfully, the guy who kicked OJ out was Jeff Ruby who is an annoying Cincinnati figure. Jerry Bailey is a bit to the right for me based on things he has said, but Paul O’Neill would hang out in the WAIF studio with the programmer who came on before Clem and I on Search & Destroy.
