"That's Impossible"

Abigail Adams points me to this clip for those who still need to understand what just happened to America.

That's pretty inspiring

I've heard it said that when The Donald spoke with his wife about running for president, she asked, "Are you sure? Because you will win, you know."

Like that.

Job 39:19

Do you give the horse its strength

or clothe its neck with a flowing mane?

20Do you make it leap like a locust,

striking terror with its proud snorting?

21It paws fiercely, rejoicing in its strength,

and charges into the fray.

22It laughs at fear, afraid of nothing;

it does not shy away from the sword.

23The quiver rattles against its side,

along with the flashing spear and lance.

24In frenzied excitement it eats up the ground;

it cannot stand still when the trumpet sounds.

25At the blast of the trumpet it snorts, ‘Aha!’

It catches the scent of battle from afar,

the shout of commanders and the battle cry.

(Thought you would enjoy this, brother Gerard. Take a look at the whole Job 39. Fabulous!)

"Don't fall off, America!"

"Let him run!!"

I was home on leave from the navy for two friends' weddings and watched the Belmont in my parents' den on a 19 inch color tv. Secretariat was already a folk hero, and when he hit the fourth turn, I was jumping up and down and screaming.
That was one of the great sporting events I've witnessed that have stayed in my consciousness. The '69 Mets, '69 Jets, '70 Knicks (with a crippled Willis Reed), the comeback of the Red Sox against my beloved Yankees, and perhaps the greatest World Series ever played, the Cubs over the Indians in 10 innings in the seventh game.
The drama of sports-even if it's only a diversion from real life, is euphoric...and yes, I'm still loyal to the New York teams, but I don't hate any others.

No one runs like that unless they love it.

Rick, that's for sure. I swear he was smiling.
