Totally OT--Kentucky Derby (sorta)
I don't follow horses or racing, but since it's the first Saturday in May...I happened upon a special about Barbaro on tv right now and I'm all sad.

Poor horsie...racing 3yr olds on rough ground. The owners, doctors and jockeys are just overcome with emotion in the special. I'm gonna go squeeze my puppy now.

(Maybe I shouldn't have had that last glass of wine.... )

Yeah, we watched this afternoon too. I am so heartbroken that Barbaro didn't make it after all he went through to get better. I know it was meant to be, but that doesn't make it any easier.

I couldn't believe how Street Sense came up from the back and won!! I was pulling for the guy in first place the whole race and then when SS won, I felt bad for the other guy!! I'm strange.

I was just praying the whole time that no one would break a leg! That would have been just awful.

But that guy has been doing it for 20 years so he deserved to win too. Yea Street Sense!!!!

Also, horse names totally crack me up. I love them. I wanted to name my dog in a similarly amusing manner...something like "Major Cooperstein the Third's Pillbox".
