Expect, in the next week, Madison Square Garden to be haunted by the ghost of a rather pissed Barbaro; the overtime in the Rangers-Sabres game yesterday caused the Barbaro documentary to be postponed and rescheduled for the vastly unworthy CNBC this Friday. Jeez, why don't you just put the damned thing on Versus? CNBC? Maybe Jim Cramer can host.
The cancellation didn't affect the weepy tributes.
Deb Gratton of Fort Bragg, N.C., Patti Boprey of Rochester, N.Y., and Lenny Hall and Yvonne Splichal, both of Las Vegas, felt like old friends when they met for the first time this weekend. [At Delaware Park] "It feels like we've known each other for 10 years," said Splichal. "With Barbaro as our link, it wasn't hard to bond."
We do hope that April 29 will remain a national holiday, and those with cat-hair-littered sweaters will still gather from miles around to "bond." It's the Horse Woodstock!
We're totally getting this tattoo, by the way ...
