- Did you have a sports hero? Who was he or she and what was their sport?
The only sport hero I ever had was Secretariat, winner of the Triple Crown.
I dreamed of owning him.
He was the 1973 Triple Crown Winner. I had just been moved from Mississippi to Virginia by my father (the rest of the family came too) and had to leave my own horse behind. I swore I would never speak to him again. Of course as a 13-year-old those types of promises are normal! Anyway, Secretariat was very special to me during such a difficult transition. My horse, Keyno, was red (Secretariat’s color), had white socks and a white blaze.
A few years ago I turned to Ebay to hunt down the Time Magazine Secretariat cover. I spent $50 for it – and don’t regret it!
Big Red is running free in Heaven!! Maybe one day when I’m there I’ll get a chance to ride him! (Hey, a girl can dream!)
