Wikipedia, blog post by John Hoff
A reader sent me an interesting story about somebody named "Bobby Joe Champion" (relationship to anybody else named "Champion" or "Bobby Joe Champion" unknown) which I am not publishing in its entirety...
I worked in the 1980s as a floorwalker at Target at 701 West Broadway (now Cub Foods store). I repeatedly encountered...
There. That's as much as I'm publishing because it's all very unproven. As for the Stanley logo, which goes with Stanley screwdrivers, well...I will illustrate my blog post in the way I see fit even if that means teasing my readers, just a bit.
Let us continue...
In response to this VERY INTERESTING BUT UNSUBSTANTIATED email, I asked the reader, "But do you have any proof of these things? Any old police reports, anything like that?"
To which the reader responded:
I will tell you, I have nothing other than this court case.
The case contains interesting facts, and then a lot of legalese not nearly so interesting to my readers. So I am copying and pasting the relevant fact section of the case here for the perusal of my audience and, again, I do not have any proof this person named "Bobby Joe Champion" is related to anybody but HIMSELF...though in the case, this "Bobby Joe Champion" is described as the "brother" of Nona Lee Champion.
So there's THAT.
In some places, the name "Bobby Champion" is used, but deep in the text this person is also referred to as "Bobby Joe Champion."
Here. Check it out for yourself and draw your own conclusions.
