THE END OF COCKFIGHTING AS WE KNOW IT?
Longtime New Mexico columnist Ned Cantwell predicts the end of cockfighting in New Mexico based on Gov. Bill Richardson's statement that he'll make an announcement about the issue in January. CLICK HERE
I dunno, Ned. Maybe he's just going to announce that an Adam Sandler remake of Warren Oates' classic 1974 movie Cockfighter will be be made in New Mexico.
Or maybe Richardson will announce his support for some variaton of Cantwell's tongue-in-cheek idea for "one final cockfighting derby, the Super Bowl of Cockfights, pitting the top fighting roosters from New Mexico against the best the Louisiana has to offer."
Probably more feasible than a pro football team in Albuquerque.
