Central Texas icon and former Austin mayoral candidate Leslie Cochran, as everybody in Austin knows, is the beloved famous cross-dressing homeless guy instrumental in the accuracy of the “Keep Austin Weird” mantra. However, despite Leslie’s penchant for wearing women’s clothing, many still wonder what team he plays for. IfyaknowwhatImean.
LettersFromTexas.com investigative reporters working around-the-clock finally caught up with Leslie at the Pecan Street Festival this weekend, and have the answer. Photographic proof from our LettersFromTexas.com hidden camera reveals, based on his cheerleading uniform, that Leslie plays for the Cougars, which in Central Texas means Connally High School in Pflugerville.
This also suggests that Mr. Cochran could have problems with legal residency requirements should he again run for Mayor of Austin, since Pflugerville is its own municipality. Adding to his residency issues is the fact that he doesn’t have a residence. He does, however, have a MySpace page, which lists his income as “below $30,000,” and boasts 10,486 friends.
Calls to Mr. Cochran’s cardboard box in an alley were not returned, so we were unable to get a comment. School district sources tell us that a grief counselors will be made available to students at Connally High School this week.
