I didn't know Richard O'Brien was from New Zealand. He lives in Cheltenham area now. My hubby served him a few times at the Esso he used to work at before we met.

I get teary-eyed every time I watch the '73 Belmont Stakes. It clearly is the greatest event in horse racing history and one of the greatest sporting events in world history. That horse knew exactly what he was doing that day and what was at stake.

Mom took us to see it at a theater on Fairchild (Spokane area) AFB. Needless to say, nobody threw frankfurters that night.

I usually like weird things but I have never understood the love for this movie and am relieved to find out that I am not the only one, too.

One of the very few times i saw my parents holding hands.  "Shh, history," they both said.  They were right.

Rocky Horror Show = Cheesy stage production.

Rocky Horror Picture Show = Cheesy movie you either love or hate.

Yeah I saw all three races as a little kid and that one... every single person who saw it knew they'd seen something that would never be surpassed. Mostly stunned expressions everywhere. You see flashes of something similar over the years... Jordan's 63 against the Celtics in the '86 playoffs, Tiger winning the Masters by 12, some of those games where a young Gretzky was making the entire NHL look like a junior league, but Secretariat still stands supreme. Somewhere he's standing on a grassy hill looking down on everything, knowing he's the best who ever was or will be.

The best RHPS screening I ever attended was several years ago at the Hollywood Bowl. Literally thousands of rolls of TP flew through the air at the "Great Scott!" moment. It was awesome.

/and lotsa toast, hot dogs, cards, etc.

1973 was when I became aware of the 'national stage.' I got a good year.

Have you ever been to a midnight show with a real "Rocky" crowd? If not, it's no wonder. Nobody thinks its a good movie. Nobody who enjoys it as a bad movie watches it at home. If you're watching it as a movie, you're doing it wrong.

I always wondered how many people put $$ against Secretariat just to cash in in case he did not get it. Then left happy because they saw something special even though they lost.

Saying that Secretariat was special horse is like saying there's a bit of water in the Pacific ocean.

Highly recommend ESPN's Sport's Century segment on Secretariat.
