Barbaro, 2006 Kentucky Derby Winner, Euthanized !

I was happy until 30 minutes ago when I learned that 2006 Kentucky Derby winner, Barbaro, was euthanized today. Barbaro, who was the odds on favorite to win the 2006 Preakness, broke his rear leg in the race and was immediately taken to surgery where the veterinarians repaired the break. His recovery period was going fine until complications set in and was he euthanized today to spare him from further pain.

Barbaro became the darling of the public and the numerous inquiries as to his health swamped the Internet. Co-owner Roy Jackson said it was a difficult, but correct, decision because of the the pain that Barbaro would endure.

Scott Pruett, Juan Pablo Montoya and Savador Duran won the Rolex 24 hour endurance race at Daytona International Speedway Sunday.

THE  MOZART SAGA:  The response to Saturday's video clip of Mozart, the iguana with the five day erection, was hilarious (not to Mozart). I will continue to look for video clips worthy of your review!

I did find out that prior to surgery, Mozart was told not to worry because it was just going to be a simple circumcision.

Question Of The Day: Today it's just a question (duheet-tee-deet). Do you watch Seinfeld and if so, your favorite story. All readers leaving comments today will not receive a copy of Mozarts new recording:   Penis Concerto in P minus.

That's it for today. More tomorrow.

Stay Tuned !
