It's acrostic time:

Never met a bottle of hooch he didn't like.
Outside, he was a cowboy. Inside, he was a little boy.
Like many old men, he would rather spend time with his pets than his family.
Angels, Mets, Astros, Rangers, and, apparently, the Houston Texans.
No-hitters. The only time he'd accept the word "no."

Ridges and ridges of wrinkles.
Y'all don't mess with Texas, ya hear?
Another gaudy Upper Deck illustration of Nolan Ryan.
Never ... (hiccup) ... met aaaa (gulp) ... bottle of hooch ... (hiccup) ... wait, whatta ya lookin' at, partner?
