To Tell The Truth?

Will the real Seabiscuit please stand rear up?

Did you know Seabiscuit raced his entire career with a sore throat?

Yes, he was a little horse.

Is that a little horse or little hoarse? ;>

The sad myth of today thanks to the glaring error of the movie: War Admiral was 15.2 1/2 hands while Seabiscuit was 15.2

Edwards as Seabiscuit is as bad as the Obama Girl going on cable news and drawing comparisons between Obama and Rocky...

Uh...Rocky lost, and then he got old and made several sucky sequels (except for IV when he fought the Russian, that was awesome).

Hmmm ... I seemed to have completed a most unusual horse racing trifecta. Often-quoted and good friend (read: I met him) to Post Parade, Dave Barry, was the key-note speaker for the AABB (that would be the American Association of Blood Bankers ... and they know nothing about horse racing) at the 2006 convention. Elizabeth Edwards, although not nearly as funny as Dave Barry, was the keynote speaker at the 2007 AABB convention. And now her husband, the ever youthful-looking John Edwards refers to himself as Seabiscuit. A rather odd coincidence?!?

And this would be why I seldom comment on your blog, Alan!

I'd hate to see either candidate with fractured sesamoids.
