I didn't think this was quite front page worthy but the comments in here are hilarious.

Yeah, I read that too, and thought to myself...wow, cool horse, awful outcome, and aren't we getting just a little detached from reality here? The horse. Can't. Read. I feel like the worst sort of asshole for saying this, and I will happily wear the "worst sort of asshole" albatross for it...but sometimes I feel like the worst part of any tragedy is the outpouring of mawkish sentiment that it inspires.

However, I'm happy to introduce him to an attractive, 5 year old Australian stock horse mare. Think of the stud fees I would save.

l_b_b, I was in the same boat when we had our great "Kirby Puckett Is Dead And I Want To Say A Little Prayer For Him Right Here On SportsFilter" discussion. You can sit at my table, if'n ya want.

So when lbb is horribly injured in a mountaineering accident, let's everybody remember that no mawkish sentiment allowed around here.

Same rule applies to writing lettes to injured horses as applies to bringing a glove to a baseball game... If you've been able to wipe your own ass for 10 years or more... you're not allowed.

Is that 10 years in a row? Just checking.

Need to take a break every now and then, Chico? Those comments are just too funny. Thanks for sharing, Tron.

Didn't take Penn long to channel this wellspring of emotion into a fundraising ploy. Shit, for a minute there, I almost forgot they were doctors.
