    Legend in their own mind

    I know we all have those buddies or know people who don't have the word humble in their vocabulary. They rarely ever have a bad outing and if they do they were a mile ahead and got hit one time. I thought it would be entertaining to hear some stories from you guys, I know I can't be the only one who knows these type of people. I know a guy who claims he wins almost every time out, but I'm never there when it happens it seems. He says to me one day after not winning, "You know I'm just going to have to come to the conclusion that I'm not going to win every single derby."

    a breeder today we know claimed he had won derby's in elite competition back in the day but when u ask "regulars" of sunset and other big shows, No one rememeber him winning, worst claimed breeder was only a mere expectator who sits in the table of the winners.

    Re: Legend in their own mind

    i noticed ine member here too claimed he has witnessed the how the legends in sport fought back when it was legal, I'm amazed of how he can vividly remember of how tye fowls fought or the cockers did(he usually narate in detai), I would thought this guy is either very keen observer or part of the cocker's team,while there is nothing wrong about that, but what makes me thinking suspiciously is he claimed, he has uncle during the day who actually showed back in the day, question is, if your talking about shows in the 70'80's, how old was he then to rememeber all of this in DETAIL?guy must be genius, .In so many And other ways too.

    Re: Legend in their own mind

    There is a local guy that was telling folks he handled for some big names and was selling fowl that came from them but none of it matched up ... he had Hargus Whitehackles direct , lol . He always said he won or split .

    I saw him lose a couple in each show , but it was just how funny he was to watch handle ... flush them with his hands under their wings , he had one run between his legs during the rest and to see him turn around looking for his rooster was like the Three Stooges .. I never seen anything more funny , I was tempted to act like I didn't see anything and ask around to see if he'd say he got in the money that day too

    I used to know another guy that was a trip. He contributed his great success as a feeder because he was a A+ Biology student back in High School.

    I grew up around the Odom boys of OKC,OK. Jame "Barefoot" Odom could tell a tail a hour long have you sitting on edge your seat whole time! Crack up Laughing and Say you believe that you believe anything! He didnt win them all but he could tell a story. Time he camped out in Slim Benosit drive way until Slim sold him some cocks! I dunno if it was true but he called them the I-35 greys!

    Re: Legend in their own mind

    That's good stuff guys. My A+ Biology buddy believed he could win with a show of White Leghorns with his patented Strychnine keep. I asked how his ace he was to take that weekend did and he said " I had a good one, but the ol' boy turned loose a "Water Moccasin" on me." Cracked me up.

    I remember when Jame brought his first son to Blanchard about 4 days old in apple box. Cold that night. James showed tuff back then. Albert and his brothers I knew stay on good side. All my buddies think I was crazy talking with Albert Heavy did have mouth on him at times. He saved me from my big mouth more than once so can't say nothing bad about him. Bones,Moose, and Whiz you ever know them?

    No I met that Bones on net another sight way back. I think he was a transplant from Idaho lived in McLoud? We was at Red Barn every weekend but may open back up after I left in 87. Now Red Barn was on Sunday so we had been going since Friday night I know I raised to much H e double LL there! Timmy was pitting for Tree Trimmer back then.

    Re: Legend in their own mind

    I had a very well known breeder and author write me and claimed to know more about how the Butchers were bred than I did. He went on to state that Phil Marsh told him this at the Orlando tournament in the early 1950's. I found this to be amazing, especially since the only time Phil was in Orlando was in 1930 and 1931. To make it more interesting Phil passed away in 1945!! Makes me wonder what other tales he told to others.

    I got a laugh out of this one...the nerve of some people to say such things to the person whos name is attached to one of the bloodlines that have stood the test of time. WOW
