KRQE reports that Andy Kaufman’s Son, Stephen Maddox, found Andy Kaufman in Albuquerque two years ago. There’s some fuzzy video evidence that makes it hard to tell if it’s Kaufman or Elvis.

As the story goes, fans say Kaufman has a biological son, known as Stephen Maddox , who spent years trying to track down his father. Maddox dedicated a website to it and eventually tracked him down in Albuquerque two years ago.

β€œHe was having surgery, supposedly, and he finally guilted him into seeing him once – that’s how the story goes,” he said.

They say he created this cryptic video and posted it online after Kaufman apparently didn’t want anything to do with him.

It shows a man walking through a parking lot full of cars with New Mexico license plates and walking by an Albuquerque-looking apartment complex.

But it’s one particular clip that causes the most speculation, fans say Maddox says it show Kaufman at work in Albuquerque 2011.

β€œI don’t know if it’s him or not. But that one black and white one where it shows his face, it looks like it could possibly be him,” Bristow said.

New Mexico Scorpions Still Loosing Money

First Scorpions game in Rio RanchoAn Albuquerque Tribune article discusses how the Scorpions didn’t make enough money during their first season in Rio Rancho to cover costs. They didn’t make enough money when they were in Albuquerque, either.

I can certainly see why they would thing the grass will be greener here in Rio Rancho, really what did they have to loose? I’m still concerned, how long will they continue to loose money? What if Rio Rancho’s growth doesn’t happen as fast as it needs to? Real fans are already driving to Rio Rancho to watch the games, what else will be done to attract new fans?

I’m still surprised to hear people complain about the drive to the Arena. Unser Road did suck, but it’s mostly better now. Any major city with major league sports have much worse traffic problems than Rio Rancho. I don’t think people know how good they have it.
