I’ve been silent since the weekend, left to ponder in solitude what might have been and what will never be. Odysseus, the horse I’ve touted as a legitimate Kentucky Derby contender since mid-February floundered in the Toyota Blue Grass last weekend at Keeneland, sustaining an injury in the process and effectively ending the Derby dream.
Unsure of how to approach the topic, I’ve returned to my roots. It was, after all, a couple of Youtube videos from the 2007 Triple Crown season that launched this adventure here at The Aspiring Horseplayer.
In an attempt to convey (albeit in slightly humorous fashion) my thoughts and misgivings on the matter, I’m presenting the following video that plays on my favorite Youtube meme other than the infamous Keyboard Cat.
Hitler is angry that Odysseus is off the Derby trail.
Evidently it takes a while for news to reach underground bunkers in Berlin where the fury of the der Fuhrer is awaiting his final destruction at the hands of the Red Army.
