This is another one of those things that, to me, is...So cut and dry, I'm surprised it's even an issue. But it is. And this side of the forum's pretty slow lately, so hah.
Horse racing's animal abuse. ESPN hypes the hell out of it for a couple of weeks out of the year, and I can't fucking stand it. Calling a horse an athlete is such a fucking joke, again, I'm surprised it's even a goddamn question. Show me a horse that can sign a contract, or even speak for that matter, to call an athlete
. Or hell, show me an athlete involved in a sport where he/she is made to run a quarter of a mile with a little jerk in funny clothes on their back, whipping them with a rod.
So, what do you guys think? And if you do consider it a sport, what do you think of Big Brown? I mean, the damn horse is a STEROID
user. Should he ride with an astrisk branded on his big ass or what?
. Couldn't help it, hah.
