It's a horse, who cares? Get it to jizz in a cup and you can have a bunch more. Or clone the fucker.

From this article:

"This horse was a hero," said David Switzer, executive director of the Kentucky Thoroughbred Association.


That may be the absolute dumbest thing I've read since the last time Dickie V. wrote a column for ESPN.com. Did Barbaro save a baby from a burning building? No. You fucking put him in a high-risk sport for profit and it didn't work out.

Dammit, i just figured out this irrational Boston hate for Barbaro. Barbaro was a colt! I get it now. Clearly, he was evil.
PS: I will never like July 27th. It will always be the day Reggie died. I just hate this day. True Celtic fans know what I mean.

Don't forget I hate the Patriots. Barbaro just blows. Or I guess the proper tense is "blew".

I don't hate Barbaro...I hate the people on the Barbaro message board that compared him to Gandhi. I bet they all fly up to Philly for the equine funeral.

I think it's sick that people are making jokes about this. Most of the people that are horse/dog owners for racing could give 2 shits about them. I feel bad for these animals.

With all due respect Ogie, when they regularly shoot horses who have broken legs but then call one a "hero" because they wouldn't put him out of his misery earlier but he could run really fast it's sickening and asking for a backlash. You're right, the people who've overdone it deserve the taunting more than Barbaro, but I don't know their names so fuck the horse.

Yes I'm a bad person. Yes I'm okay with that.

All I mean is it isn't the horses fault. It should have been put out of it's misery a long time ago but the greed overwhelmed the owners and that poor thing suffered because of it.

i really dont care, and thats the thing that pisses me off... that ive been subjected to fucking updates about this horse for over a goddamned year, especially on ESPN. a horse is not an athlete to me, nor does anyone give a single crap about horseracing unless its derby time. i am sick of this fucking story, and by extension that fuckin horse. may he rest in peace, but if i hear another story about that goddamned horse it will be too goddamned soon.

Man, you guys are cruel. While I agree that the media coverage of this has been ridiculous, it's hard to not feel bad for an animal dying like that. It's not his fault they made him race.

True, but that doesn't make him a hero. It doesn't make him a fighter. It doesn't make him larger than life. It's not his fault they made him race, it's not the cow's fault it's being bred for ground beef, and it's not the mole's fault it was born in the vicinity of my yard. However that does not spare the animals from being (in order) overexposed, tasty, and fucknuts marked for death at my hands.

Maybe Im blind, but i dont really see the over-coverage. Maybe once every 2 or 3 weeks, espn.com or si.com would mention a surgery or something. You dont have to click on the story! You guys are just hatin.
PS: I will never like July 27th. It will always be the day Reggie died. I just hate this day. True Celtic fans know what I mean.

Not all news comes from the internet. It's hard to "not click" when it's on Sportscenter, or the local news, or the national news, etc. etc. etc. Thankfully NBC News last night saved their Barbaro ball-washing for the end of the show so I could just turn off the set. Barbaro was almost as over-exposed as Paris Hilton.

I dont know.....I rarely see SC, dont watch the news ever. I have seen some updates locally, bc its a local horse, but i didnt get the feeling it was overkill, even in Philly.
