Some People Wanted No Part Of Nolan Ryan’s Meat After He Backed Ron Washington

In an interview with the Fort Worth Star Telegram‘s Randy Galloway, Texas Rangers president Nolan Ryan mentions how some people were so furious with how he backed Ron Washington last month after the cocaine story came out that they were threatening to never again eat his meat products.

“All I know,” said Ryan, “is when I endorsed Kay Bailey Hutchison (in the state governor’s race), I got letters from people saying they’d never buy my meat again. And then when I backed Ron in this thing, I got letters from people saying they’d never buy my meat again.

“I told Jon Daniels the other day that one more of these decisions by me, and I guess I’ll be out of the meat business.”

So there you have it. Who knew Nolan Ryan was in the meat racket? I suppose it makes sense. And people can get so uppity sometimes. Why would a person – a Texan, in particular – choose to boycott fresh, quality beef? As it is clearly stated above, Nolan Ryan Beef has “Quality Bold Flavor” and is “Guaranteed Tender,” which makes it a lot like me.
