       August 29, 2010

    While I may not get to watch every Packers game, I do have TVG, so I get to watch Zenyatta, among others. As a horse racing fan, August is one of the best times of the year. The Saratoga and Del Mar meets are in full swing, two-year olds are racing and you never know when you'll catch a future star.

    Yesterday, I glanced up at the TV long enough to watch Uncle Mo, who looks to be a worthy challenger to the current hyped two-year olds Kantharos and Boys At Toscanova.

    Wow. Although he's obviously quick, Uncle Mo may have some distance ability as his broodmare sire is the stamina influence Arch.

    When you catch a horse at the beginning of his career, they're always a little special to you. It's that way with anything - it's always sweeter if you were in from the start. I found these two videos of Mumford & Sons - one from March 2009 and one from this summer. Don't you think the people that saw them on a patio in Austin love them just a little bit more seeing how far they've come?

    Sometimes I make fun of those people that are always chasing the next cool band or the next trend or whatever, but seeing these videos now makes me think that maybe they're on to something.

    And because horse racing is the hardest and most frustrating sport to love, I'll note that the above mentioned Kantharos was retired yesterday with an injury.

    This is on the radio and reminds me of Greg LAswell.
