Bye, bye Barbaro


Oh laminitis-infected, fracture-healed, Kentucky-Derby winning obsession of a nation -- euthanized this weekend.

Not a giraffe

Barbaro, we waited with baited breath for your recovery -- it could be argued that the footage of your leg snapping like a matchstick at last year's Preakness was the first official "YouTube moment" that captured the attention of the non-Colbert Nation and that your recovery was a brief placebo for out angst over Iraq. But mostly you were just cute. We'll miss you.
