RIP Bob Boykin -- voice of Big Tex

Recommended Posts

Where did they get that he was anonymous? All the local TV stations did stories about it when they replaced the previous announcer.

The article didn't mention this, but I understand Big Tex's voice is going to be replaced with the voice of Charles Nelson Reilly....

I thought it was going to be Rip Taylor and shoot confetti out of his hat.

I’m just still a bit in awe that he managed to survive this and go on to live another ~8 years

Edit: well that joke fell flat.. just read the obit and I got Boykin mixed up with Bragg.

Bragg was canned the same year as the fire

The reason for the Bragg firing is still unclear to me. The 3/27/13 article linked in the article above said he always cleared appearance requests with State Fair officials, but somehow the American Cancer Society event pissed them (or the Sue Gooding bitch) off. If it’s an event he didn’t get cleared, I missed that particular detail.
