I found a good biscuit at suppertime

Well, I turned on the tube while I was dining on my TV dinner. It was right at 9:00 p.m. local time and I was scanning the channels looking for something great to watch. I was passing PBS when I saw The American Experience was coming on. I do not think I have ever seen an episode of that show which I did not enjoy, as it is such a well done series. Tonight's episode was about a horse. What horse, you wonder? Sea Biscuit. The link takes you to the PBS site about the episode where you can hear vintage radio broadcasts of Sea Biscuit's races and much much more. I wanted so badly to post something about it here when I saw it coming on, but didn't think many would catch the blurb quickly enough to catch the episode. Of course, I am unsure if PBS series play on the same date and time in all areas, so if your local PBS affiliate has not yet aired this week's American Experience, catch this one. It is a great story! [And I understand they are going to soon be releasing a major motion picture about Sea Biscuit*] I wonder, however, if maybe Lance Armstrong didn't inherit Sea Biscuit's heart?

*I know you all knew that!

Tiger: The movie started its run last Friday. As for Lance having some grotesque, mummified horse's heart implanted in his chest, that's just some weird shit right outta H.P. Lovecraft.

BTW, I enjoy your father's writings very much. Sounds a lot like my recently expired granddad.

Wow, I live in a very small town area, and have not seen the movie open in the area yet. Maybe I need to go to Dallas or Ft. Worth to see the movie.
